Watch Eric Prydz play his monstrous edit of U2’s ‘New Year’s Day’ at Decadence
Serving as the final performance of an unprecedentedly impressive year, Eric Prydz’s New Year’s Eve slot at Colorado’s Decadence Festival was handily one of the most anticipated sets of the event. Even without the pomp and frills of his legendary EPIC 4.0 LED fortress, concertgoers were well aware that the pioneering performer would put on an inimitable spectacle of a performance to conclude 2016 on a transcendent note.
By all accounts, the master did not disappoint.
Perhaps the most exciting footage available from his performance thus far sees Prydz treat Decadence attendees to his private edit of U2’s “New Year’s Day” – a fitting choice for the NYE festival. Connoisseurs of the Swedish artist on his dedicated sub-reddit assert that Prydz premiered the edit in 2014, but it has since been rarely included in sets thereafter. Watch his scintillating rendition of U2’s hit above, which begins as a minimally tweaked version of the original track before climaxing phenomenally right around the four-minute mark.
