When a rare opportunity comes your way, the natural reaction is to take it right away. Well, when Eric Prydz comes to the states, especially New York City, it shouldn't even be a question but more a programmed reaction that you'll be in that crowd. An icon to fans both in the mainstream and underground scenes, Prydz has championed a level of success through his music and producing skills.
While we caught a Prydz appearance over the summer at Identity Festival and again at his short show at Beekman, fans who missed him there now have a second chance to see the sensational Swede play two shows at Roseland Ballroom on November 21st and 24th.
When Eric Prydz announced he would be playing in NYC on Thanksgiving Eve, the Tri-State area knew they would be in for something special this fall. After an overwhelming response and sold out show, he announced a second show on Saturday, Nov. 24th at Roseland Ballroom.
This past summer we saw Prydz turn the Jones Beach Amphitheatre upside down at Identity Festival and when he caused a bit of a ruckus (in good fashion, of course) when his set at Beekman Beach Club was shut down and moved to Pacha at the last minute.
The progressive house virtuoso is a dime a dozen in the DJ world as it's a rare and intimate opportunity to catch one of his shows so it's one not to be missed! For more information and tickets click here.
The New York Identity Festival is just around the corner, and with all the talented acts slated in the lineup this year, it’s going to be hard not to have a great time. The festival at Jones Beach Theater in Long Island, is showcasing some major DJs/producers and singers, resulting in one of the only locations to sell out completely so quickly. If you’re getting ready to dance your pants off this weekend at the festival, here are five acts to look out for:
For the past ten years, Eric Prydz has been a name you simply cannot ignore when it comes to dance music. The Grammy-nominated Swedish musical genius, also known under his Cirez D alias among others, is the mastermind behind some of the most well-known dance tracks including “Pjanoo," “Call On Me," “In and Out," ”2night," the more recent “Allein.” And we can't forget “Proper Education," a renowned song featuring a sample from Pink Floyd. He has collaborated with and remixed for a number of distinguished artists in EDM including Steve Angello, Calvin Harris, Digitalsim, and Depeche Mode, while running his two labels Pryda and Mouseville. This year Prydz released his “Eric Prydz Presents Pryda” album featuring 37 amazing house tracks from the Pryda catalogue mixed by Eric. The album includes his most recent hit “Allein," which has been supported by the biggest names in EDM. As the headliner for Identity this year, you can expect to hear a set that is sure to rock the house.
When German trance duo Cosmic Gate come to town, New Yorker’s know that they are in for a night full of energy. Making their Pacha NYC debut back in January of this year for the release of their latest album Back to The Future, the pair will be welcomed back with open arms by New Yorkers tonight at the popular house music landmark.
