Product Description

BBC Review

Eric Prydz is a machine, and increasingly a mechanism of legendary status. If you were to triangulate the effectiveness of other famous apparatus such as Big Bertha, The Terminator and Bob Moog’s name-sharing synthesiser you might get close to how clinical, productive and downright dazzling Prydz has become in the field of commercial dance music.

Prydz thus now battles in the same, some would argue distastefully overblown arena as Tiësto, David Guetta and Armin van Buuren; namely the populist’s choice for generic and globalised beats. Pryda, will however, make a lot of people ecstatic: Sunburst, for instance, is possessed by the kind of epic crescendo that will make someone’s summer as they are riddled with bliss in Ibiza. And that’s just one tune from 37 that are layered over three discs.

In short: if you love trance, you’ll love Pryda. Such is the fervour he invokes in his fans that, if you’re familiar with songs called Rakfunk or Juletider, you may actually already fully own two-thirds of this three-disc set.

However, the first disc is peppered with unreleased cuts and ‘works in progress’ suggesting an even more polished and accessible future. There are some slick moments, though perhaps not on his track Agag, which seems far too close to the sublime beauty of Oni Ayhun’s track OAR 003. Something smells distinctly fishy.

The other two discs are retrospective DJ mixes. The first is a tech-house exploration that could easily stand up in the lion’s den of dance music, Berlin, albeit probably in some of the more ‘cheesy’ nightclubs. Tracks like Reeperbahn aren’t a million miles off the svelte depth of German duo Booka Shade, who retain their so-called-cool credentials. The second mixed disc is straight trance: plain, simple and uplifting.

Incredibly accessible and lacking in any details that are too complex, trance is a musical genre that sates the collective thirst for big, boisterous beats and widescreen euphoria – and Pryda rides this aesthetic well. If you want good-time tunes and aren’t a train-spotter of techno then there’s some delicious, hair-raising breaks scattered across the three hours of Pryda lurking in wait for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars House, Trance, Progressive - Prydz 2 Jun 2012
By V K-K
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
10 years in the making this collection was guaranteed to be 5 star before disc 1 (the album) was even written. Most big name DJs shell out compilations at the rate of 1 or 2 a year, but despite huge demand Eric refused until now. Discs 2 & 3 are the highlights of his incredible production career which circles the genre of House music with relentless quality, patience and euphoria to such an extend that there could and should have been a disc 4!

Prydz's image is a complicated one having had 3 big chart hits (Call On Me, Proper Education & Pjanoo), but only a recent edit of Pjanoo is allowed into the reckoning here. His commitment to the underground sound of house is shown by classics Armed, Aftermath & the hypnotic Emos, while recent monster club hits M.S.B.O.Y., 2Night & Mirage ensure a relentless euphoric finish to disc 3.

As for the new album its more of the same with some fine progressive working with ventures into electro and to be honest the deeper shades of dare i say it Trance. 'You' & 'SW4' are belters, but there isn't a weak track on display, with the ecstasy moment being what promises to be one of the summers biggest records 'Allein' which has been bubbling around for some time, but Prydz is the master of knowing when to make a release.

Pigeon holing this collection of music doesn't do it credit. It is indeed the fact that so many of Prydz's records fall between genres that give him his identity. There is however no doubting that he is one of the greatest producers of club music melodys who has ever graced the decks. Miss this at your peril, Prydz is unlike compatriots Guetta, Tiesto & Co underated and would be a bigger household name if he didnt suffer from fear of flying, but if you get the chance dont just buy this album, pay a visit to see him and his EPIC show, especially his August dates for Together @ Amnesia in Ibiza.

4.0 out of 5 stars One Of The Best Producers Out There.... 2 May 2013
By Will
Format:Audio CD
Eric Prydz has not been swamped up by the american EDM craze. He keeps his sound truly faithful to what he does best; a mish mash of Progressive House, Trance & Techno. Highly recommended. However, where is "Every Day", his remix of M83 and "Deeper Still?. Also I would have enjoyed a few more vocals here and there

4.0 out of 5 stars Another Triumph 6 Aug 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Many great tracks, less 'vocal' album than I expected... the 2 mixed CD's are great and very typical of Prydz - definitely get this if you like his style and sound!

5.0 out of 5 stars Genius! Mr. Prydz is simply a genius! 6 Jun 2012
By Stephen
Format:Audio CD
Had every tune on cd2 & cd3 anyway, but the way theyve been compiled and mixed is simply stunning. Quite simply, each mix is a journey! Cd1 is also great, loved hearing the classic Shadows open the collection! 5*!

I'm not a big fan of this genre of music but it's a good album and the play length makes the money worth it.
