Eric Prydz To Release Debut Album OPUS February 5th 2016 On Virgin Records
On the first of this month, Eric Prydz announced his debut album OPUS, which will be released on February 5th, 2016. Prydz also revealed dates for EPIC 4.0 Phase 1, which will launch in NYC on President’s Day Weekend, before heading to LA and San Francisco.
EPIC (Eric Prydz In Concert) has been widely acclaimed as one of electronic music’s most exciting and innovative live events, famed for its use of holograms, 3D technology, and lasers. Prydz claims EPIC 4.0 has been redesigned from the ground up, while retaining the core elements that fans have come to expect from EPIC shows. EPIC last took place at Madison Square Garden in September 2014 to critical acclaim.
Few producers have impacted contemporary electronic music in the manner of Prydz over the last decade. He has amassed a rich and singular discography that has encompassed multiple aliases, while straddling the worlds of house and techno. In the increasingly divided world of electronic music, Prydz continues to draw praise from chart toppers and underground icons alike.
2015 has seen Prydz release a string of new original material, including the Pryda 10 series to mark ten years of his label Pryda Recordings and more recently his VOL D EP under his other prominent alias Cirez D.
You can listen to Cirez D's VOL D EP on Beatport, here.
Further, under Eric Prydz, the producer has released ‘Generate,’ his collaborative rework of CHVRCHES' ‘Tether,’ & ‘Opus,’ which included the hugely shared remix by Four Tet. In total, 2015 has seen Prydz release 30 new tracks, by far his most productive year to date. It’s a year of work that encapsulates the diversity and depth of Prydz artistry, and provides a unique glimpse into what we can expect from one of the most anticipated debut albums in dance music.
