Watch Eric Prydz drop four unreleased tracks during Halloween weekend
As one would expect, Eric Prydz was in high demand over the course of Halloween weekend. On Friday, the Swedish progressive house legend performed from Insomniac’s Escape Psycho Circus, headlining the Ghouls’ Graveyard. Saturday subsequently saw Prydz travel to Las Vegas for a rare daytime set from Marquee Dayclub. Fortunately for fans, Prydz took both opportunities to showcase some new music from his vaults.
As these things tend to go, the unreleased originals have taken on temporary titles, as designated by his fans based upon where the IDs were first recorded. The two unreleased tracks from Escape, for instance, have been labeled “Escape ID 1” and “Escape ID 2” accordingly. Both tracks are rumored to belong to Prydz’s Pryda alias, under which the Swedish juggernaut will release a new EP in November.
Prydz also played out a rare bootleg of his which samples John Creamer & Stephane K’s “Forget the World,” which in turn samples The Doors’ “A Little Game.” The track notably features a sudden tempo drop to a midtempo beat — a rarity in Prydz’s set. Lastly, Prydz also played out his “Opium ID,” which fans have been clamoring for since earlier this summer when Eric dropped the tune at the famed Barcelona nightclub of the same name.
