Eric Prydz Shares ‘Pryda 028′ EP

If progressive house music is our religion, then Eric Prydz is our prophet. Following up on the massive single Liberate, the sublime Swede once again assumes his Pryda alias for a new EP, Pryda 028, the first-ever four-track release on the label.

The EP opens with Mija, a teasing and tantalizing number that serves as a fitting introduction to the audial journey that is a Prydz live performance. He takes us further down the rabbit hole with the powerful and methodical Origins, a song that proves that you don't need to have a ridiculous drop to be considered hard-hitting.

The highlight of the EP, at least in our eyes, is Backdraft, a haunting, brooding, introspective number that conjures up images of dancing late into the night at a dark club.

Closing out the release is Axis, an upbeat and ebullient track reminiscent of his earlier hit song Pjanoo. Paired together with the opener Mija, the two songs serve as fitting bookends to a phenomenal journey from one of dance music's truly singular talents.

10 years and 28 releases in, Prydz continues to prove that, when it comes to progressive house, everyone else is fighting for second place.

Pryda 028 drops Aug. 4 exclusively on Beatport.

‘Turn Up’ With Kill The Noise On Gent & Jawns Remix

It's been a minute since we last threw it down to Gent & Jawns' hood anthem, Turn Up, but we haven't forgotten about it. Apparently, neither has Kill The Noise, who just dropped an electrifying new remix of the tune as part of G&J's Faded EP.

Those of you expecting a bass-heavy dubstep track are in for quite a surprise--KTN has redesigned the song into a blistering big room number. The drums are big, the bass is bigger, and the song is tailor-made to go off in a live setting. Some of you bass heads are probably screaming out loud in protest right now, but don't worry, the second drop--a decidedly nasty trap explosion--will have you smiling ear to ear.

Pick up Kill The Noise's remix on Beatport now.

SBTRKT Announces New Album With ‘New Dorp, New York’

UK producer SBTRKT finds inspiration in the Big Apple in his brand new track New Dorp, New York.

Serving as the lead single from SBTRKT’s highly anticipated sophomore album Wonder Where We Land, New Dorp, New York is a pulsing, ambitious effort featuring Vampire Weekend frontman and New York native Ezra Koenig. SBTRKT produces a series of banging, rapid-fire rhythms while maneuvering his beats around Koenig's dexterous delivery of monotone spoken word about “gargoyles gargling oil” and “flags flapping in Manhattan.”

In addition to Koenig, SBTRKT’s new record will feature collaborations with the likes of A$AP Ferg, Sampha, Jessie Ware, Koreless, Warpaint’s Emily Kokal, and Chairlift’s Caroline Polachek.

Wonder Where We Land is out Sept. 23 via Young Turks. Check out a teaser video for the album below.
