After wrapping up his tremendous EPIC 2.0 tour, Eric Prydz has wasted little time in re-centering the focus around his glistening Pryda productions. While Zane Lowe got the exclusive on Prydz’s new track “Lycka,” Pete Tong has premiered the B-side to the release, “F.A.T.” While the A-side is a blissful and suave progressive house piece, “F.A.T” is one of Prydz’s many secret dance floor weapons. The track has been an ID in his sets through 2013, fueling his performances with its warping arpeggios and driving melody. The preview does not do the track justice, as anyone who has seen Prydz can attest to its potency in a live setting. “Lycka” and “F.A.T” will be released together on December 9th.Posted by
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.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.

Pryda’s uber talented protégé Fehrplay has released his remix to Lemaitre’s “Continuum” first heard on his EPIC Radio takeover alongside label pal Jeremy Olander. Even though the track is deep by nature, the Norwegian adds a little optimism to the dark rhythm through delicate synths fused into a hypnotizing vocal play. It will have you falling in love with his unique techno-infused sound just like his previous “Monte” and “Talk to Me” releases. Check out the dates to see him live with the Pryda friends crew here.
