Hot off the heels from releasing ‘Power Drive’ under his highly renowned Pryda moniker, revered dance music veteran Eric Prydz brings back his darker side with a two-track EP for his own Mouseville Records. Dropping almost two years after ‘Mokba’, ‘Thunderstuck’ and ‘Drums In The Deep’ see Cirez D make up for lost time with an energetically stirring techno release. Sporting propulsive drum patterns and an extension of his inimitable knack for detail, Prydz’s uncanny ability to switch between his different alter egos like it was nothing acts as an impressive arrow to the bow of the multifaceted Swede.

Out today on Beatport.


In the aftermath of his highly-acclaimed Pryda Essential Mix for BBC Radio 1, renowned Swedish master of the melodic anthem Eric Prydz is yet to rest on the laurels of his Pryda moniker just yet. Following a lot of teasing and countless appearances in his sets, ‘Power Drive’ will see its eagerly-awaited release on April 1st through his own Pryda Recordings.

Bringing his A-game in regular Pryda fashion, the stern emphasis on melodic progressions and vintage charisma marks an exciting extension of the uplifting club hallmarks that have seen the Swedish heavyweight reign supreme over the past few years.

Out April 1st.

It’s told that three is a magic number and surely, Eric Prydz’s third ‘real’ Essential Mix for BBC Radio One is musical wizardry from start to finish. While one might think topping his mix from 2007 would be a task close to impossible, Prydz’s 2013 effort sees him pull out all the stops for a majestic two-hour journey of peaks and valleys and a continuous wave of melodic bliss.

Dealing almost exclusively in unreleased tracks from the Prydz camp, the Swedish veteran sails through a selection of 24 tracks, whereof 22 are yet to be released, from Cory Lasser, Magnus Froblom, Jeremy Olander, the mysterious Not Mani and Arpo as well as Prydz alter egos Pryda, Cirez D and Tanja Holma. Jumping between the uplifting disposition of his Pryda moniker and the underground hallmarks that dominated his national uprising, Prydz’s 2013 Essential Mix offers a seamless insight into the studio genius of the inimitable master of melodic Dance music.

Back on remix duty after his stellar take of M83’s ‘Midnight City,’ Eric Prydz lends his Midas-like touch to Jeremy Olander’s upcoming fourth release on Pryda Friends for a darker, accompanying dub remix.

Having reigned in a spree of live and recorded landmarks throughout 2012, Eric Prydz makes his hotly tipped return under his Pryda alias after the release of ‘Eric Prydz Presents Pryda‘. Made up of headline single ‘Bergen’, formerly known to fans as the Café Mambo ID, and equally impressive B-side ‘Recomondos’, his ‘PRY023′ EP maintains the momentum of his diverse melodic journey as Pryda, elaborating a smooth fusion of Progressive House that to this day has not been wholeheartedly topped.

But in addition to the momentum behind his EPIC radio show and latest single ‘Every Day’ still keeping him fixed upon the industry radar, PRY023 suggests that as we approach the new year, Eric Prydz is sure to remain a force of reckoning for Electronic music at its most elevated creative heights throughout 2013.

Having reigned in a consistent spree of live and recorded landmarks throughout 2012, Pete Tong was the first to get his hands on the hotly tipped return of Eric Prydz under his adorned Pryda alias. Made up of headline single ‘Bergen’, formerly known to fans as the Café Mambo ID, and equally impressive B-side ‘Recomondos’, his ‘PRY023′ EP maintains the momentum of his diverse melodic journey as Pryda, elaborating a smooth yet transfixing fusion of Progressive House that to this day has not been wholeheartedly topped.

But in addition to the momentum behind his EPIC radio show and latest single ‘Every Day’ still keeping him fixed upon the industry radar, PRY023 suggests that as we approach the new year, Eric Prydz is sure to remain a force of reckoning for Electronic music at its most elevated creative heights throughout 2013.

Out November 26th.

First premiered in the acclaimed aftermovie of Tomorrowland 2011, the mashup of Eric Prydz’s ‘Mirage’ and Empire Of The Sun’s ‘We Are The People’ has seen a steady rise to global fame. But in the aftermath of poorly crafted remakes and unofficial versions, November 4th 2012 sees a properly made, official version receive its long overdue release as part of the ‘Every Day‘ EP.

Fusing the delicately layered melodies that have characterised Prydz’s recording career to date alongside Empire of The Sun’s nostalgically charged topline, ‘We Are Mirage’ offers a seamless and relevant insight into the Swedish producer’s integral studio genius despite the notable delay in its formal release.

Already an idol among Swedish House music and global club culture alike, 2012 has been a true year of reckoning for the assorted monikers of Eric Prydz. Off the heels of his ‘Every Day‘ single, the fifth episode of his EPIC Radio podcast officially unveils yet another melodic gem in the form of ‘Clapham’, previously known to fans as the ‘Moscow ID’.

In a subtle nod to the annual venue of London’s South West Four festival, Prydz blends melodic progressions and sharp and fluctuating synth play to create an impressive bridge between the uplifting disposition of his Pryda moniker and the underground hallmarks that dominated his national uprising.
