Eric Prydz is a Swedish DJ and producer based in Los Angeles. His rise to fame began after his 2004 hit single 'Call On Me' that topped UK and German charts for many week. Since then, he has come up with many other hit bangers and gained a steady following from both underground and mainstream fans. Eric Prydz is the only artist to ever be given permission to sample Pink Floyd, which he did in a remixed version of Another Brick in the Wall Part 2 in 2006.
Prydz formed a group together with Axwell, Sebastian Ingrosso and Steve Angello. This group was informally known as the Swedish House Mafia. When the group was officially formed in late 2008, Prydz opted out. However, he has collaborated with some of his friends individually.
Eric has a signature live setup: EPIC. This clever acronym stands for Eric Prydz In Concert and it definitely lives up to its name. It consists of a stage that features three-dimensional holograms and video art as well as a rotating setlist that highlights music from his career and aliases. He has been renewing it over the years and the fifth installation, EPIC 5.0 will take place in Victoria Park as part of a superstructure called the Steel Yard. According the the press release, the concert will also be hosting the biggest hologram ever used for a live performance. It is set to take place May the 27th from 1pm to 11pm. It is the only rendition of EPIC to take place in Europe in 2017.
