Eric Prydz To Launch First Ever Ibiza Residency at Hï Ibiza

Eric Prydz is returning to the White Island this summer, this time for a ten-week residency at the brand new Hï Ibiza which has taken over the building previously occupied by Space.

The Playa d’en Bossa nightclub is scheduled to open its doors this summer, aiming to continue to bring more “underground” acts to the repurposed space while also adopting more of the VIP signature lifestyle that characterizes the events that take place across the street at Ushuaïa. Both venues are now owned by Ushuaïa Entertainment, which explains the programming direction that Hï is taking in confirming residencies that so far include Black Coffee and Martin Garrix just to name two.

Today Eric Prydz confirmed he will be taking over the club for ten consecutive weeks between the 20th of June and the 22nd of August. The residency, which is Eric’s first ever in Ibiza, will allow his team to use the club’s blank canvas to work their magic, building a site specific show for the residency, creating a unique stage for Eric to present his inimitable blend of house and techno across his Pryda and Cirez D aliases. The Prydz residency will bring a singular visual and audio experience to the Ibiza season.

“Hï offered us a unique opportunity to go into a new club, with a blank canvas to build something special, and very unique without existing limitations. For my debut Ibiza residency I wanted a platform to do things on my own terms, inviting the artists I want to host, in a space that we are creating” – Eric Prydz.

Eric will be joined by old and new friends with Matthew Dear, Kölsch, Pig & Dan, Agoria, Catz ‘N Dogz, Tube & Berger, Dusky and more all confirmed to join him throughout the ten-week takeover.

Eric Prydz at Hï Ibiza
Every Tuesday from 20th June – 22nd August (10 weeks)

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.

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.

Swedish progressive house master Eric Prydz is right in the midst of his EPIC 4.0 tour with a last stop scheduled for San Francisco at the Armory this coming Saturday February 27th.

A recording of his Friday night set at the Palladium is live on Soundcloud. While not official and in need of a bit of clean-up, it certainly captures the impressive set that was put on display by the skilled producer and DJ.

Yesterday, it was also announced that he will be playing a Cirez D CRSSD After Dark party at Spin in San Diego on the 5th of March after his performance at the festival.

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.

Pete Tong

BBC Radio 1’s dance music pioneer Pete Tong has announced plans to broadcast his 22nd of January show live and directly from a rooftop location in West Hollywood overlooking downtown Los Angeles.

The three-hour show, set to broadcast at 10pm-1am UK time and 2-5pm local time time, will see Pete take over the decks accompanied by top artists in dance music including Eric Prydz, Richie Hawtin, MK (with a special guest) and Claude vonStroke. The British legend will be joined by other names to be announced during his Radio 1 show a week from now on January 15th.

The afternoon rooftop session will be followed by the already announced “Essential Mix Live” show at Exchange LA later that night. Featuring Richie Hawtin, Pete Tong himself and rising star Lee K, the recordings from the night will form up an Essential Mix to be released on Pete’s show.

The Los Angeles broadcast will be the first of two in the United States, with Pete set to take over a Miami rooftop during Miami Music Week where he will be in the company of Annie Mac, Dannie Howard and additional guests yet to be announced.

PeteTongAnnouncement

Pete Tong said: “I’m very excited about my show coming live from LA on Jan 22nd. Los Angeles has become a creative hub for electronic artists from all over the world during the past few years and California and Las Vegas a hot bed of ground breaking festivals and some of the world’s leading clubs. Bringing the show out of Hollywood and being able to reflect some of the exciting things going on is a great way to start the year.”
