Eric Prydz ends 2013 with stunning Pryda tracks 'Lycka' and 'F.A.T'
At the outset of 2013, Eric Prydz promised to a year full of music releases, and to much delight, the Swedish music luminary hasn’t disappointed. From glorious Pryda tracks like “Power Drive,” “Layers,” and “Rotonda,” to darker Cirez D selections like “Drums in the Deep” and “Thunderstuck,” Eric has satisfied fans with masterful progressive house and techno releases in 2013. Ending the year on a strong note, Eric has released “Lycka” along with its B-side, “F.A.T.”
As fortune would have it, “Lycka” is Prydz’s most polished track of the year. The melodic hook of “Lycka” grabs you immediately, holding you close as Prydz seamlessly introduces new elements, as if piecing together a complex puzzle. With his signature measured approach to song progression, Prydz patiently builds to a stupendous crescendo. Multiple layers drift in and out effortlessly, as the song carries towards its conclusion with a mirthful drive. Simply put, “Lycka” is progressive house at its best.
Despite being overshadowed by the sheer beauty of “Lycka,” “F.A.T” is no track to sleep on. In similar fashion to the live potency of “Power Drive,” “F.A.T” is a track designed to send dance floors sprawling. With a signature Prydz arpeggio as its backbone, the song snakes along, powered by its heavily distorted lead. A set staple throughout his EPIC tour, “F.A.T” is a welcome B-side to “Lycka.”
