After an incredible 2012, Eric Prydz returns with brand new single, ‘Every Day’, on Virgin Records. The single features an uplifting vocal refrain, Eric’s deeply atmospheric, yet hooky melodies, all underpinned with his trademark brooding electronic beats. Already a Top 2 record on Beatport, it is a perfect anthem for the winter months and a natural bridge to his new material coming in 2013. The track has had overwhelming support from specialists. Zane Lowe said “The thing about Prydz is that he’s so incredible… every time he comes out with something new. He is honestly in my opinion one of the greatest all time club producers!”
The release bundle features a killer drum & bass mix from Ram Records don, Andy C. Also included is Eric’s definitive version of ‘We Are Mirage’ – a mash-up (originally created by Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike) of Empire Of The Sun’s ‘We Are The People’ and his Pryda release ‘Mirage’. It first appeared on the now legendary Tomorrowland 2011 festival movie, clocking up a remarkable 42 million views online. The track has now had the blessing of Empire Of The Sun’s Luke Steele for an official release.
Since his arrival Eric Prydz has inadvertently broken into uncharted territory for dance music. Festivals, events and venues across the planet have rocked to his performances, safe in the knowledge that they’re witnessing something special. 2012 has been a big year for Eric. In May he started his EPIC Radio broadcasts on iTunes. One hour of electronic music selected by Eric himself every month where he takes the listeners on a journey into his musical world. In July Eric set off to the other side of the Atlantic for his first North American tour for five years. He headlined the ‘Identity’ festival taking in over 15 cities in North America. The clubbing landscape has changed much since his last visit, but he was enthusiastically welcomed by both his die-hard fans and a new generation of Dance music aficionados. After a brief few months back in Europe for key Festival dates (Creamfields, SW4) plus his Amnesia residency, Eric returned to the U.S. for two Sold-Out shows at the famous Roseland Ballroom.
Earlier in 2012 Eric signed to Virgin Records. His first release on the label was the album, ‘Eric Prydz presents Pryda’, a collection of key productions under his Pryda guise. Receiving critical acclaim, it showed that despite his past mainstream glories, Eric’s longevity and success is derived from his deep connection with the underground. Eric Prydz isn’t concerned with the flamboyant showmanship of some of his peers. The unassuming perfectionist puts the crowd and their musical experience above himself every time. His releases and forward thinking live shows have allowed him to achieve worldwide recognition. With Eric it’s simply about the music.
