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.

Side note: Next weekend, Mat Zo will make his debut on the Essential Mix.

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.

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.

In one of his most energizing years of industrious wanderings to date, renowned Swedish master of the melodic anthem Eric Prydz is yet to rest on his well-oiled laurels of his Pryda moniker just yet. Premiered during an exclusive live guest slot on Pete Tong’s Essential Selection show, episode two of Prydz’s EPIC Radio show confirmed ‘Ocean Drive’ as an official Pryda single. In another potent surge of his atmospheric energy, 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 throughout 2012.

For all of Sweden’s finite Electronic innovators, few can rival the marvel and creative integrity Eric Prydz has stirred for nation and genre alike. But after years of waiting for a full-length outing to emerge, 2012 sees his infamous Prydz moniker collect a three-disc album of exclusive new material while relishing in the wealth of industry defining anthems that his alternative musical personality has conjured over the past decade.

Having already unveiled such emotively charged exclusives as ‘SW4‘ and the Pete Tong approved ‘Allein‘, “Eric Prydz Presents Pryda” drives home an array of fresh new material for the benefit of those already romanced by his diversely euphoric stylings. From the solid and darting canvas of dancing leads drawn from previously leaked opening track ‘Shadows’, Prydz embarks on a mission to refine his reputation as House music’s more creative club-floor master. Driving deeper into the ambient realms of Electronic music for ‘Beyond 8’, it is the stern ethnic scope of spine-tingling ‘Javlar’ that hits home the transient diversity that the Swedish icon has continued to master. Returning to the more familiar Progressive play of Pryda with ‘Sunburst’, Prydz attempts to encapsulate the energy of the Mediterranean Sea that he viewed from his summer home in Ibiza while recording the track last summer.

‘Hardrock Lausanne’ then encompasses the mood of a vintage sci-fi soundtrack before transitioning to the delicate vocal stylings of Prydz himself for ‘You’. Ahead of a club orientated nod of adoration to the late Robin Gibb of the Bee Gees in a fresh take on his ‘Mighty Love’ collaboration alongside Dukes Of Sluca partner Andreas Postl, Prydz leaves it up to the emotively charged ‘Leja’ to act as a musical nod to his young daughter by the same name. Rounding off disc one with intimate edits of ‘You’ and his beloved club anthem ‘Pjanoo’, Prydz masterfully fuses an array of styles and genres for what has rightfully been the most highly anticipated collection of tracks for the past decade.

For his retrospective mixes that make up the rest of the album, Prydz breaks the vaults of his musical archive to bring an essential instalment of pertinent classics and personal edits, driving on the likes of ‘Miami To Atlanta’ ‘Muranyi’ and ‘The Gift’ right through to such festival favorites as ‘Inspiration’ and ‘M.S.B.O.Y’. Donning three exclusive edits across the two remaining discs and a further bonus free giveaway of ‘Tijuana’ to those obtain the release legally, Prydz manages to fill the accompanying mixes with as much excitement as his groundbreaking new material for what promises to go down as a landmark for the Swedish House icon and his long serving industry alike.

Words by Dan Carter

Initially premiered at Club Space in Miami a few years back, the Pryda single formerly known as the ‘Space Miami ID’ has now been announced to be called ‘Tijuana’. Originally produced back in 2007 while going through the Arizona desert on the way to Las Vegas for his North America tour, the recent announcement plays testament to that of ‘Tijuana’ possibly seeing its final release soon.

Despite not getting a spot on the “Eric Prydz presents Pryda” album dropping on Monday, the track proves a strong contender for an inclusion on the full-length Eric Prydz artist album coming out this Fall. Set against a backdrop of steady beats and fiery instrumental work, ‘Tijuana’ consistently launches from deep melodic builds to energetic charges for yet another intricate belter to the name of this long serving club icon.

Update: ‘Tijuana’ is available as an exclusive free download only for those who buy the Pryda album.

Few have championed the Swedish House explosion with as much momentous achievement as longstanding legend Eric Prydz. Forging his legacy well before his genres untimely renaissance, his various musical guises have made for an overtly fuller package of floor-fuelling divinity, while his Pryda and Mouseville imprints have fostered a new generation of Progressive House supremacy alongside his own distinct offerings.

In anticipation for the full release, Eric Prydz and Virgin Records team up with Hype Machine to offer Pryda fans across the globe a chance to listen to the complete first disc seven days ahead of its sought-after release. Built around intricate melodic developments and clusters of atmospheric chords, it is the delicate rhythmic developments that forge this triple CD compilation as the quite possibly most artistic album to ever emerge from an Electronic Dance Music producer. ’SW4‘ and ‘Allein‘ have already hit the digital stores, but if this host of unreleased Pryda gems is any indication, it’s safe to say that the full-length Eric Prydz album dropping later this year will appear pretty epic.

The album will be released on May 21.
