As one of the most versatile producers in the music industry, Eric Prydz has continued to innovate with dance music whether it be with progressive house, raw techno, pop-leaning electronic music or anthemic trance. He’s released more music than most producers within the community, he owns and operates three distinct labels and his live performances go above and beyond what many know to be possible, utilizing 3d and holograms to captivate his crowd. His artistry seemingly knows no bounds and although he’s been a prominent figure for over 16 years, he’s still very much in his prime.
Now with his immersive EPIC 5.0 audiovisual performance set to debut in London at Victoria Park this weekend, the latest in his groundbreaking event series, Mixmag dives deep into the past history of Prydz to showcase some of his most iconic moments.
From the early days producing rave focused material, as well as pop, to sold out stadium performances, these are the moments that outline the scope of Eric Prydz.
Eric Prydz presents EPIC
April 2, 2011 Eric Prydz takes to the O2 Academy Brixton to perform his first EPIC live show. At the time, this was a major step further into superstar territory, having already achieved great success with chart topping releases. Today it’s easy to see how influential and important this inaugural event in London was, but at the time nobody could have predicted how the EPIC event series would become one of the world’s leading performances pushing the limits of live dance music and technology. 3D visuals were far from the norm and still are rare in today’s industry, but the first EPIC provided a glimpse of Prydz’s vision and got the world excited for what was possible.
