Though the legendary nights of Eric Prydz’s EPIC 2.0 NYC and Los Angeles have passed, the memories of the historic performances remain fresh in our minds. Adding to our nostalgic pleasure, THUMP has released Fehrplay and Jeremy Olander’s highly coveted back-to-back set from EPIC 2.0 NYC. Opening with plenty of flawless techno from Jeremy Olander, the set picks up considerably when Fehrplay introduces such tracks as “Phantom” and “Indigo,” not to mention his and Olander’s new collaboration, “Balboa.” The hour and a half opening set is just what we needed in the wake of the spectacular Roseland Ballroom and Hollywood Palladium shows, and a splendid way to start your day.Posted by
Two and a half years ago, Eric Prydz took over London’s O2 Academy Brixton for the inaugural EPIC, or ‘Eric Prydz in Concert.’ The storied London nights reverberated through the dance music community, paving the way for an all out hysteria at the announcement of EPIC 2.0, the North American edition. With an emphatic two night NYC run in the books, Eric Prydz returned to his new hometown of Los Angeles for the only West Coast installment of the groundbreaking tour. As expected, what went down this past Saturday at the Hollywood Palladium was something quite spectacular — a feast not only for the eyes and ears but for the mind and soul.
Nearing the end of his Pryda Friends Tour with label mate Fehrplay, Jeremy Olander gives listeners a taste of the brilliant musicality he’s been treating audiences with around the US & Canada. Jeremy fuses the intensity of techno with the perfect amount of progressive energy to keep the set radiant and quick moving. He includes his own tracks such as “Tool 1,” “Tool 2,” “Bayhert,” “Apex,” and “Malensa” while mixing in a few from Cirez D, Eelke Kleijn and more. If you’re looking for a sound different than the ubiquitous bleeps and drops EDM has become accustom to lately, look no further that Jeremy Olander’ Vivrant Radio.Posted by
From supporting label head Eric Prydz on his highly anticipated EPIC 2.0 tour to performing surprise back-to-back sets with Jeremy Olander on the duo’s own co-headlining Pryda Friends tour, Fehrplay has certainly demonstrated his progressive prowess throughout recent months. After performing a guest mix on Dancing Astronaut’s Axis just two weeks ago, the Norwegian lets loose his latest release, “Indigo,” marking his sixth release on the Pryda Friends label. The progressive house mainstay brings fans a more driven track proven by an aggressive lead with his latest release, before introducing a calming synth to give the track the dynamic range Fehrplay has continuously provided through his releases. The track continues to finish strong with an incredible breakdown and the young star’s signature melody-driven drop.

Episode 78 of Dancing Astronaut Radio is brought to you by Pryda camp mainstay, Fehrplay. It’s no secret that Fehrplay and frequent label mate Jeremy Olander have taken to US domination this season, with two successive (and successful) tours under their belts. He occupies a respectable place in between progressive house, techno, and trance — making his mixes and productions enjoyable and accessible for fans from all sides of the dance music spectrum. Enjoy Fehrplay’s short but sweet mix below, and be sure to catch him on his autumn tour.
After unleashing his dark remix to Lemâitre’s “Continuum” just a few days ago, Fehrplay has unveiled his newest charismatic original, “Indigo.” Catalyzed by a driving bassline and cinematic build up, the Norwegian’s newest offering features the same kind of vigorous grandeur that earned him his spot on Prydz’s coveted label. While the producer has dabbled in everything from techno to deep house recently, “Indigo” is pure progressive house bliss. The track is due on on Pryda Friends on October 21st, just after he and Jeremy Olander have joined the EPIC 2.0 madness on the tour’s NYC dates.Posted by

Between a landmark North American tour and a spree of accomplished releases, Norwegian breakout Fehrplay has turned a lot of heads throughout the year. Off the heels of the Monte/Talk To Me EP for Pryda Friends, national electro-pop outfit Lemâitre is the next to receive a firm dose of the producer’s eclectic progressive tendencies. As premiered on his EPIC Radio takeover alongside label-mate Jeremy Olander, melodic stamina and underground aptitude once again unite with this European trailblazer behind the wheel. Mustering full-bodied melodic progressions that wrap seamlessly around the original’s intimate vocal work, “Continuum” rings with the form differentiating factors that have continued to keep Fehrplay in such esteem throughout 2013.
