Eric Prydz’ Orchestral Epic Scheduled For Release


“Opus,” the title of Eric Prydzs jaw dropping finale to his Electric Daisy Carnival performance, is scheduled to release on July 27th via Beatport. The date precedes the release of Pryda 10 Vol. II on August 10th, and the enormously anticipated Eric Prydz album in October.

The announcement of “Opus” is a joyous surprise, as fans of the Swedish mastermind are well accustom to his IDs never seeing a formal release, “Generate” being a prime example of a track that has only recently become available.

Clocking in at just over nine minutes, “Opus” joins the category of epic storytelling alongside Deadmau5′ “Strobe” and The M Machine’s “Luma.” The track begins with an emotionally rich melody that slowly gains tempo until the telltale Prydz percussion begins to kick around two minutes in.

Gradually, tension builds as the synthesized strings drop into a euphoric breakdown supplanted by retro 80s sub-oscillations. “Opus” boasts a truly expansive texture, and offers a brilliant continuation of what has already been an incredible year for Eric Prydz.

Have a listen above and stay on the lookout for more Pryda announcements soon.
