Our newly crowned #1 artist of 2012 has had a career worth looking back on. His discography features everything within the world of techno, house, and even trance. Today’s Weekend Rewind features Eric Prydz’s re-edit to techno legend Sven Väth’s “The Beauty and the Beast.” The 2008 release is a minimal progressive techno track with a dark and menacing build, accompanied by a gloomy set of vocals. Looking back at our favorite artist’s old work puts things into perspective from where things were and where they are going. You can see over the years that Prydz has favored a certain level of rhythmic progression, more recently favoring the big-room sound that we saw off his 2012 Pryda album.
