Listen to Eric Prydz and Jeremy Olander’s epic Essential Mix
Since announcing a year of collaborative firsts for Pete Tong’s renowned Essential Mix, Eric Prydz and Jeremy Olander have been established as befitting partners in crime. Where the prior claimed 2013’s best Essential Mix and ended 2014 with a landmark instalment of his EPIC 3.0 show, 2015 beckoned an early familial first for the cream of the Pryda crop.
With a brand new album on the cards for Prydz and new music on the horizon for label peer Olander, the inaugural Essential Mix was as much about setting the tone as it was testing the waters for progressive house’s global appeal. Few labels have commandeered the sex appeal of Pryda under the sound’s remits, but the versatile nature of this mix says everything about why this camp of Swedish talent’s has taken the sound from under the radar to Madison Square Garden and beyond.
IDs, personal edits and fan submitted material are all on the cards for this iconic showdown of progressive greats, one that plays graciously into both artist’s mysterious studio prowess whilst delivering firm affirmation of the state of their mutual sound. We can’t speculate whether this is already 2015’s finest Essential Mix instalment, but Eric Prydz and Jeremy Olander’s first stab at the New Year is going to be a tough one to follow.
