Swedish born, Los Angeles based DJ and producer Eric Prydz has been in the electronic music industry for quite a long time, over a decade in fact. He is 37 after-all. But here’s the interesting part, unlike most DJ’s who start at a young age, Eric Prydz didn’t start until he was 25 – which doesn’t seem that old, but most DJ’s get bit by the bug well before they graduate high school or college. But regardless, we’re happy that Pryda is here – I don’t know what I would’ve done without his remixes of “Call On Me” and “Pjanoo”! Fun fact: I used to KILL his track Pjanoo on DJ Hero. Completely irrelevant from the story – just thought you should know. Anyway, Prydz, aside from being a full time DJ, also runs record labels Pryda, Pryda Friends and Mouseville. Here’s the confusing part – when a track of his is released on Pryda, he releases it under the DJ name Pryda. But when it’s released on Mouseville Records, his tracks are released under the psuedonym Cirez D. Don’t ask. We don’t know what the deal is with that. I suppose it is somewhat understandable when you take into account that Eric Prydz hasn’t given an interview in over 6 years and never appears in his music videos. We’re scratching our heads on that one as well, but as long as he’s releasing badass tracks, no one seems to mind. Prydz also just released a new track earlier this month titled “Lycka” which translates to ‘happiness’ in Swedish.
Not so ironically, the track does make you feel happy and free, so we can’t wait to hear him drop it at LIV Miami on Friday, December 6th! With the Holidays quite literally upon us (Happy Thanksgiving!) LIV nightclub Miami is really ramping up the talent they’re bringing for the rest of the year, which is good for all of us! Before Eric Prydz takes the stage, resident LIV nightclub Miami DJ Mednas will be tearing it up on the 1’s and 2’s. General admission tickets for the ladies start at $60 and general admission tickets for the gentlemen start at $125. Tickets can be purchased by CLICKING HERE. This is a 21+ event and a dress code is enforced.
