In an effort to close out 2013 in style, Jeremy Olander has previewed his next release. Following “Balboa” alongside label mate Fehrplay which the duo gave away for free, Olander’s newest preview showcases the Swede’s production prowess. Grabbing its namesake from a fictional creature created by Lewis Carrol, “Bandersnatch” uses a deep and driving bassline that never lets up. With dates around the world and a number of acclaimed productions during 2013, there is no doubt that Jeremy Olander had a banner year and will continue his momentum as 2014 inches closer.
Release date: December 23rd
Fehrplay and Jeremy Olander have become the face of Eric Prydz’s burgeoning Pryda Friends label. Having toured together for more than two months now, it was inevitable that the two would collaborate on a track. To our collective delight, Jonas and Jeremy have released their much-anticipated collaboration, “Balboa,” for free. Beautifully fusing the talents of the two producers, the track incorporates the atmosphere and drive of Jeremy Olander’s absorbing techno with the pull and grandeur of Fehrplay’s cinematic production. Simply put, “Balboa” is stupendous.
With his first Pryda record since this summer’s two-track feature of “Layers” and “Rotonda,” Eric Prydz dawns his famed progressive house alter ego for a marvelous new production by the name of “Lycka.” The new track, which is Swedish for ‘happiness,’ contains the irresistible bliss for which Eric is known. Appropriately dubbed Zane Lowe’s ‘Hottest Record of the Week,’ “Lycka” is a return to the classic progressive house vibes from Eric’s seminal 2012 album, Pryda. Upon premiering the latest Pryda production, Zane Lowe takes the opportunity to catch up with Prydz on the new single. While there is no word on the official release date yet, Eric has confirmed that the new Pryda release will contain two tracks, this being the first.
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.
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.
Swedish progressive techno superstar Jeremy Olander has decided to give us a little taste what he’s been playing during his Pryda Friends tour with a 35 minute mix. Blending in new IDs with tracks such as “Lauderdale” and “Uprising,” the mix shows off his impeccable skill of creating the perfect mood. The mix will have you hypnotized in its subtle transitions and progressive build-up. Catch him along with Eric Prydz and Fehrplay during their North American tour and experience something truly EPIC.
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.

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.
