Über Eric Prydz
Swedish DJ and producer Eric Prydz first burst onto the international club scene in 2004 with his chart-topper "Call on Me." The song, which sampled the Steve Winwood classic "Valerie," became a hit, topping the U.K. singles chart for six weeks. Before this success, Prydz was a drummer in the Swedish synth band, Enemy Alliance, a group that dreamt of becoming the next Kraftwerk. But after he began creating his own techno-funk tracks, he was eventually signed to the dance label Credence. Mixing elements of electro and minimal tech-house, Prydz creates peak-time floor fillers that are championed by some of the biggest DJs in the world. The prolific musician has also founded three successful dance labels.
