Good Morning Mix: Eric Prydz spins eight unreleased tracks in new EPIC Radio mixEric Prydz Cochella

Eric Prydz seems to have an endless supply of unreleased material in his sonic arsenal, and one of his latest ventures further proves it. The 25th episode of EPIC Radio made its debut live on Apple Music on Oct. 11. It’s the first time the show has been broadcast in more than a year, and fans were eager to soak up a number of new IDs.

Included in the track list were a few Pryda IDs, a collaboration with Steve Angello, a Sam Ball remix of New Order‘s “True Faith,” and many more. Fans can listen to the full show on Apple Music or stream an unofficial SoundCloud cut below.

Prydz has had a busy October, having released the latest installment in his Pryda 15 series earlier this month.

Just as summer has come to an end, so has the 15th anniversary celebration of Eric Prydz‘ progressive-leaning Pryda moniker with the third and final installment of Pryda 15. The series charts his evolution under the alter ego across the past decade-and-a-half, and sees the Swedish pioneer unearthing some particularly ought out pieces from his archives for the occasion. Of course, he’s fashioned newer works for the project as well.

Pryda 15 Vol. III is essentially a dancefloor album; it clocks in at 13 tracks total. Longtime fans of the artist will immediately note some particularly sought after IDs, including “Exchange Finale,” “Bus 605,” and the much-adored “Terminal 5.” These three, along with the remaining 10 tracks comprising this behemoth record, culminate into yet another opus for Prydz, a clear master of timeless production and expert sound design. Not only are these pieces fit for the dancefloor, but they’re each a journey in themselves, taking listeners through rich, sentimental soundscapes that ultimately lead into a meditative state. Having released so many gems over these past months, it’s safe to say the producer has left us with just enough to satiate cravings until Pryda 20 arrives.

15 years of Pryda: Eric Prydz shares expansive second edition of Pryda 15 EP series

15 years of Pryda: Eric Prydz shares expansive second edition of Pryda 15 EP seriesPryda

Eric Prydz‘s ornate sonic catalog has long rested on the pinnacle of the progressive house hierarchy. A master of iconoclastic live visuals and multifaceted aural approaches, Prydz has developed a number of aliases over the years, through which he can categorize his kaleidoscope of varying sound designs: namely Eric Prydz, Cirez D, and Pryda.

Pryda has stood for years, 15, in fact, as a vessel through which Prydz has funneled his more club-centric dance-scapes. The Pryda project has endured as something of a litmus test for Prydz fans, the midway point between the more accessible Eric Prydz cuts, and the exceedingly shadowy and tech-fueled Cirez D tracks. To mark the anniversary, he’s begun rolling out a three-part EP series, chock-full of anthemic progressive offerings, both brand new songs and longtime IDs from his performances, the latter of which die-hard fans have no doubt been hungrily tracking.

The eight-part second arm of the series is as forceful as it is mellifluous, from the swirling keys on “The Drive” to the vapory crests of “The Riddle.” Rousing builds run abound; and the result offers nothing short of dancefloor transcendence. Prydz has yet to share an official release date for the third and final installment.

Eric Prydz re-enters remix ring with hypnotic rework of CamelPhat and Cristoph’s ‘Breathe’

Eric Prydz is back in action. The multi-alias entity has remained a particularly active agent in electronic circles, where he’s released a wealth of new material under his three flanking aliases, TONJA HOLMA, Cirez D, and Pryda. Each of Prydz’s three additional sonic identities have enjoyed further musical development of late. Cirez D dropped a new EP by the name of Dare U in 2018, the same year that Prydz would release another EP, Elements, as Pryda. Prior, Prydz conceived TONJA HOLMA in 2017 via the debut of an EP that bore the same name as Prydz’s then newly minted alias.

While TONJA HOLMA, Cirez D, and Pryda spiked highs in terms of activity over the past two years, Eric Prydz has seldom debuted new music under his own name in this same timeframe. Now, Prydz’s period of silence comes to a close with the debut of an official remix of CamelPhat and Cristoph‘s entrancing Jem Cooke feature, “Breathe.” Staticky atmospheric tones comprise the opening seconds of Prydz’s take. Cooke’s vocal echoes with the same eerie potency evident on the original, to create a tantalizing effect. The melodic progressive tech house layers that Prydz adds in his remix comprise Prydz’s most intensive revisionary work, in the constructional context of the hypnotic original.

Eric Prydz cancels all Miami performances, cites medical conditionEric Prydz 2016

On Tuesday evening March 26, Eric Prydz officially announced cancellation of all his appearances in Miami including his sold-out Wynwood Factory Pryda show and headlining slots at Ultra Music Festival. In what began as mere speculation, Prydz’s eventual cancellation progressed from the removal of his Wynwood show from the venue website to actual confirmation.

One of the most highly anticipated acts for both MMW and Ultra, Prydz’s absence will be felt, his announcement coming as a shock to many. He posted on Twitter both apologizing and relaying a message concerning “an acute medical condition”.

Pryda ticket-holders will receive refunds and a free week-long pass for pre-midnight entry to Wynwood shows. Prydz was slotted to play a back-to-back with Adam Beyer at Ultra’s new Resistance Island on Friday as well as the ASOT stage on Sunday. With only days left before the festival, the line-up situation for who will fill the gap left by the Swedish veteran still remains unclear, although his presence will surely be missed.

Eric Prydz closed out 2018 on a high note, going back-to-back with Adam Beyer under his Cirez D moniker for a number of high-profile co-headlining performances. Now, as 2019 begins to ramp up, the Swedish electronic visionary has already promised his most technically advanced live performances to date, along with confirmation that he’s bringing his jaw-dropping HOLO performance to Creamfields later this year. Sweetening the deal even further, Prydz has revealed a limited run of dates under his Pryda alias throughout February and into March, with Washington D.C., Boston, and Chicago all in his cross hairs.

Among the mini-tour’s planned stops is a timely return to Brooklyn’s Navy Yard, where just over a month ago Prydz and Beyer shook New York’s underground to its core with three hours of unadulterated techno. The “Proper Education” producer will perform the final show at Navy Yard, which is expected to shutter after February 23—an honor requested by Prydz after news of the venue’s impending closure broke. See the full list of upcoming Pryda shows below.
