Questions Top100 DJs 2004 - Jon Dommett - 2017-10-17 10:47

Eric Prydz is a man of many monikers. Over the last two decades he's released everything from industrial techno to progressive house under his many aliases that include Pryda and Cirez D, as well as lesser-known names like Tonja Holma and Sheridan.

He’s managed to successfully traverse the delicate line between dance music’s commercial and underground scenes, making No.1 hits like ‘Call On Me’ plus seminal (and still widely-played) club anthems like ‘Pjanoo’, alongside his debut and record-breaking 2016 LP, ‘OPUS’.

2017 has been one of his biggest yet, with festival and club bills worldwide — from Australia to India, USA and Europe — triumphantly topped by the Swedish selector. He put down roots in Ibiza for the very first time this year with a residency at brand-new Ibiza superclub Hi Ibiza — the new club set-up on the former site of legendary nightclub, Space.

He's also still running his three labels — Mouseville, Pryda and new addition Pryda Presents — and continuing to push his ever-evolving, holograph-laden stadium show, EPIC, to new heights. Prydz is also still producing astounding amounts of music — up to five tracks a week, according to a chat we had with him earlier this year — and is a man resolutely committed to his craft.
