Eric Prydz to play Factory93, Brooklyn Warehouse, Space Miami and more as part of Spring 2017 Tour

Eric Prydz

Eric Prydz is set to get intimate with his fans this coming Spring 2017, announcing club and underground venue shows throughout North America that will see him play music from his multiple aliases of Pryda, CirezD and Eric Prydz.

The tour will crisscross the house and techno spectrums, while undoubtedly including his signature progressive house flair. The tour will begin at Washington D.C.’s Echostage on the 25th of February, and end in Los Angeles where he is set to play Insomniac’s Factory93 series in an underground-style location on April 8th. In between he will visit Uniun in Tornto, a secret warehouse in Brooklyn, Club Space in Miami for a Miami Music Week Pryda show, as well as Houston, New Orleans, Austin and Dallas.

The last few months have been particularly busy for Prydz. He announced his biggest ever show, EPIC 5.0. to be held in late May in London, the 15,000 capacity event sold out just hours after being announced. Under his Pryda alias he released Pryda 037, brought back his EPIC Radio podcast, and performed two special shows and released a track ‘Lillo’ raising money to fight cancer in memory of his late fan James Lillo.

Tickets for shows will go on sale Friday January 13th 12pm EST.

Listen to Eric Prydz’s New Two Track EP, Released Under Cirez D Moniker

Cirez D

2016 has been prolific for Eric Prydz. The Swedish producer and DJ released a debut album earlier in the year and has now released his second Cirez D EP in just as many months.

The artist, who is known for his ability to produce track after track and for his vast catalogue of unreleased work, is back with ‘Backlash’ and ‘The Tournament,’ two pieces that fit perfectly under Cirez D’s sound umbrella.

Both tracks ooze the type of driving, relentless and apothic techno that Eric has become known for producing under the alias.

The EP is out now on Beatport. You can listen to both tracks below:

Listen to Cirez D’s and Chase & Status’ Essential Mixes

Cirez D

Last night, Eric Prydz made his Essential Mix debut as Cirez D with a live set recording from Creamfields.

The Swedish progressive house and techno producer is not new to the BBC Radio 1 show hosted by Pete Tong, with Essential Mixes delivered in both 2011 and 2013, the latter of which won the accolade of Essential Mix of the Year. This, however, is the first time that the British radio show has featured a mix from Prydz’ techno moniker of Cirez D.

He was joined by drum & bass artists Chase and Status who delivered the other hour of the iconic radio show, also with a live recording from the British festival.

Enjoy the full two-hour recording of last night’s Essential Mix featuring both sets of artists via the BBC Radio iPlayer or directly through SoundCloud below.

Can’t Make It to Space Ibiza to Say Goodbye to Carl Cox? BE-AT.TV Will Live Stream It For You!

CarlCoxFinalChapter

Thousands of dance music fans are planning to make the trek to Ibiza this summer to pay homage to one of the scene’s greatest, Carl Cox, as he embarks on the final Music Is Revolution journey of his career before Space Ibiza is turned over to the group that owns Ushuaïa across the street.

Although the Intec Digital boss has announced his desire to continue playing on the island as a guest DJ, 2016 truly marks the end of an era with the Final Chapter becoming one of the hottest nights of the entire season. While many will be visiting the Space dance floor during one of the 15 Tuesday dates planned for the next coming months, thousands of others won’t be able to make the farewell celebrations.

You will be able to see some of the industry’s best name in action from the comfort of your home or office, no matter where you are in the world: Luciano, Chris Liebing, John Digweed, Nic Fanciulli, Sasha, Adam Beyer b2b Ida Engberg, Joseph Capriati, Dubfire, Nicole Moudaber, Pan-Pot, Kerri Chandler, Loco Dice, Carl Craig, Nina Kraviz, Marco Carola, Matthias Tanzmann, Joris Voorn, Josh Wink, Monika Kruse, Marco Bailey, Danny Tenaglia, Francois K, Masters At Work, Yousef, Kölsch, Tania Vulcano, Cirez D, Guy J, James Lavelle, Cirez D, Carlo Lio, Julio Bashmore, Catz N Dogz, Davide Squillace, Hot Since 82, Deetron, tINI and DJ Sneak are all scheduled to play.

Things will start off on Tuesday June 14th, with the closing party scheduled for September 20th. Simply tune in at www.BE-AT.TV and enjoy the music! Although streaming lineups for the entire season aren’t released yet, below is the list of artists confirmed to be featured in the first three weeks:

Relive CRSSD Fest Through Pictures and Live Set Recordings

This past weekend San Diego saw the return of CRSSD Festival for an entirely Sold-Out weekend. An estimated 15,000 attendees packed out the city’s Waterfront Park for a two-day of music bonanza that featured the who’s who of international house music as well as eclectic acts from the indie electronica world.

Colder-than-usual temperatures didn’t stop the festival from reaching peak attendance, leaving everyone to wonder if CRSSD will expand to three days in the near future or will continue as it has done for the past three editions. It is nothing short of remarkable that the team behind CRSSD has built a sold-out festival in merely a year, in no small part thanks to well-curated line-ups and one of the most beautiful festival setting in the United States.

Things started strong on Day one courtesy of Crosstown Rebels chief Damian Lazarus who took over the City Steps stage with a two hour set of powerful house peppered with tribal sounds.

 

Next up, it was the turn of Skream , who played not one but five sets over the weekend including a back-to-back with Tom Trago subbing in for a late Loco Dice on Day 2, a surprise back-to-back with Jamie Jones at an after-party and a set each on both Friday and Saturday.

Elsewhere, as the sun begun to set attendees were treated by beautiful performances by Lane 8 at The Palms stage and Ryan Hemsworth at the Ocean View Main Stage.

As the sky turned dark and a blanket of drizzle began to fall, Tiga took over at The Palms with a set that blurred the lines between techno and house while France’s GESAFFELSTEIN delivered with a powerful DJ set of personal production favorites that had the crowd wanting for more.

 

Depending on your taste, you could choose to end Saturday with Hot Creations boss Jamie Jones at The Palms stage, Cirez D and his signature progressive techno at The City Steps or the increasingly popular Odesza at the main stage. Despite the rain the crowds remained strong to close out the first day of CRSSD.

Overall, things went fairly smoothly throughout the first half of the weekend. Admittedly, large crowds caused some bottlenecks at the bathrooms which CRSSD worked to handle (and only partially did) by adding more porta potties on Sunday and it appeared that sound could be improved at both the City Steps and Palms stages by adding more stacks for those in the back. These are understandable and easily solvable growing pains for a festival that has perhaps expanded more than anyone could have ever expected in such a short period of time.

Sunday started strong, as blue skies took over welcoming thousands back to close out the weekend in style. Dirtybird faithful J.Phlip and Ardalan went back-to-back in front of a large crowd early in the day as Tom Trago handed over the decks to Swiss duo Adriatique at the City Steps.

 

Oliver Heldens took over the Ocean View stage for  one of the day’s most anticipated sets under his Hi-Lo moniker, drawing an unsurprisingly large crowd. A quick walk elsewhere as Green Velvet gave The City Steps his Chicago house treatment and Gorgon City went back-t0-back with Kidnap Kid highlighted just how busy the festival was at sold-out capacity: all three stages were busy with thousands of dancing crazy festival goers.

The evening at The Palms began with a Hot Since 82 two-hour set while Skream and Tom Trago filled in for Loco Dice who arrived thirty or so minutes late for his set. Having witnessed two of Skream’s three sets so far that weekend, it became clear just how versatile the Croydon-born DJ is in adapting to different crowds and settings. He was able to fill in for Loco Dice masterfully by steering away from the sound he had previous delivered with his scheduled sets.

Diversity was the name of the game as the festival came to an end. With Chet Faker main stage, those still looking for DJs divided themselves between Maceo Plex – who replaced Tale of Us who couldn’t travel due to sickness – and Dirtybird chief Claude vonStroke, who brought Green Velvet on for a surprise Get Real set. The former, just like during the inaugural edition of CRSSD a year earlier, seemed to attempt to to play past the allotted 10pm noise curfew but was unfortunately shut down.

Regardless, as thousands poured out of Waterfront Park and began to make their way to their chosen after-parties, it became clear that CRSSD Festival has undeniably cut itself a large slice of the pie that is the American festival scene. We look forward to seeing how the festival handles the amazing prospect of expansion in the coming years.

Eric Prydz Bringing Out Cirez D for NYC and LA Shows

CirezD

Eric Prydz is surely set for nothing but a massive 2016. Not only is his latest album “Opus” dropping this coming FridayFeb 5th, with pre-orders already available through iTunes, Amazon and CD/Vinyl, but he is scheduled to take his EPIC tour on the road for a fourth installment that will see him perform in New York City, Los Angeles and San Francisco next month ahead of his Ultra Miami date. Prydz is also set to perform a an after-party Pryda set at Exchange LA on February 19th.

On top of all the above, the Swedish producer has now announced that he will be bringing out his darker alter-ego Cirez D for two confirmed dates in the coming month. The first on February 13th at the newly opened Flash Factory in New York City and the second on February 20th at  Lot 613 in Los Angeles, promoted by Insomniac. Tickets quickly sold out for both shows.

With rumors of other Cirez D dates for the States circulating on the internet, it will be truly interesting to see which other cities Prydz will be visiting in the coming month. For anyone in Los Angeles, this translates to two Epic 4.0 shows followed by an after-party each night showcasing both of the producer’s sounds.
