If there’s one thing Eric Prydz fans are good at, it’s cataloguing his discography before it even comes out. The Swedish DJ and producer premiered an ID on last week’s episode of his Beats 1 series, EPIC Radio, and they’ve already taken it upon themselves to rip the track and assign it a working title.
“Takin’ My Freedom” – so named for its anthemic female vocal refrain – is textbook Eric Prydz. Glassy, vaguely synth wave-reminiscent melodies build to peaks with a tasteful measure of mass appeal. While Prydz sets are notoriously flexible depending on his audience, the ID will surely find its way into plenty of his upcoming performances.
The Many Faces of Eric Prydz
In addition to releasing music under his birth name, Eric Prydz has also put out songs via his Pryda and Cirez D monikers over the years. The former has more or less become interchangeable with his core brand, with the latter devoted to his more dissonant techno singles – the most recent of which being a track titled “The Accuser.”
Eric Prydz has yet to officially release the ID tentatively called “Takin’ My Freedom” on any of his promotional avenues. Meanwhile, he will continue his residency at Hï Ibiza with a performance on Tuesday, July 25th.
