Preview: Eric Prydz @ Roseland Ballroom NYC

Believe it or not New Yorkers, but this weekend, a once in a lifetime EDM event will be occurring right here in Manhattan. Eric Prydz, world-renowned DJ, has finally conquered his fear of flying to come to the states and put on a show for us. One of the greatest house DJs of all time, his fame has been stifled by his inability to tour internationally, but this week he will be blessing NYC with not just one, but two shows this week at famed venue Roseland Ballroom.

Originating as a Swedish Progressive House DJ, Eric Prydz has made his name known in the EDM world through his massive hits such as “Call On Me”, a sexy club banger played all around the world. Holding a place of #52 on the Top 100 DJ Mag’s List and #14 on the Top House DJs List, Eric Prydz proves that he’s earned his spot through being a musician, rather than just through cheap performance antics. While Prydz certainly masters all of his produced hits, it is not doubt to anyone who’s seen him live that he is one of the few remaining DJs who live mixes, and is damn good at it.

Just recently releasing his long-anticipated album, Pryda under Virgin Records, this album does nothing but completes Prydz’s image as a versatile DJ. Influenced mainly by Trance and Tech, this album has the perfect blend of happy go-lucky tunes and emotionally blissful songs that could bring any listener to tears. Simple and uplifting, Prydz’s style as reflected in Pryda proves to be universally appealing and an excellent listen for anyone’s music taste.

I don’t know about the rest of you, but this Thanksgiving, I’m definitely thankful for Prydz and the shows that he will be giving us. Tickets are still on sale for only $40 to see a DJ that you would otherwise have to travel to Europe to see - quite a bargain on airfare if you ask me. Eric Prydz will be playing on both tonight (Thanksgiving Eve) and Saturday night also for those you returning to the city after a hearty Thanksgiving. All of you genuine ravers better make sure you come out the Roseland Ballroom at least one of these nights for such a special EDM holiday treat: to see a true EDM genius at work.

Tickets Still on Sale
