Progressive House | Richard Knott – Push

Richard Knott - Push
Ahhhhh, some real, bonafide progressive. Richard Knott was thrust into the spotlight when his tune “Locus Solus” was released on Eric Prydz’s Pryda Friends, a fine destination for his tracks, but has since fallen out of the general public’s eye. A lot of his songs are free releases and here the UK producer is back with another “Push” with its delicate arps, carefully constructed melodies, and strong bass line that makes this one of his best original efforts to date.

House | Jeremy Olander – Bandersnatch

Posted by on December 23, 2013

Jeremy Olander - BandersnatchAfter his “Petroleum” remix on Pryda Friends, Jeremy Olander returns home to finish out the year with a thumping new single “Bandersnatch. Referring to the mystical creature in Lewis Carroll’s “Through The Looking Glass”, and later in “Alive In Wonderland”, the track has an ominous, foreboding quality. “Bandersnatch” bridges the gap between some of his more progressive productions and what we have seen in tracks like “Animal Garden” or “Rose Law”, making this something for all of his fans tastes. When Eric Prydz describes your track as “Oh my god, what a banger”, you know there is something special.

Progressive House | Jeremy Olander & Fehrplay – Balboa

Jeremy Olander & Fehrplay - Balboa

Surprisngly enough, these two have never done a collabo together with all the work they have both released on Pryda Friends over the past two years. However, with all the time they have spent together touring across the US over the past 3-4 months, both with Prydz and on their own, a track was spawned from two innovative minds. It has the vintage progressive grooves you expect from these two and best of yet, the track is free, so hit download now.


House | Jeremy Olander – Let Me Feel

Posted by on March 5, 2013

Pryda Friends protégé, Jeremy Olander makes his return to Eric Prydz’s revered label after releasing a few free tracks and making a stop over at Mark Knight’s Toolroom Records. “Let Me Feel” is another super progressive and melodic track from Jeremy Olander with a rolling bass line, a strong groove and an intoxicating melody of quick key strokes, piano and just the right amount of male vocals. Having shown off over a dozen unreleased tracks in his Frisky Radio mix a few months back, this single is just the tip of the iceberg of what we can expect to see from the Swedish producer in 2013. After the jump you can preview the Eric Prydz dub mix of “Let Me Feel” that is a more stripped back version of it. Because Miami is coming right up (we will have more previews soon), you can catch him on a boat with Pierce Fulton, Jaytech and Khoma on Saturday the 23rd — so if you aren’t inside the gates of Ultra at that time, check them out. Grab tickets here.

Progressive House | Arias – Pegasus

Posted by on March 2, 2013


Frenchman Arias follows up his previous effort “Andromeda” with his second release “Pegasus” on his newly launched record label Olympia Records. “Pegasus” ventures into the same style as his previous release that is very melodic and upbeat using chugging bass lines, churning synth chords and haunting pitched key play to bring out the sound that is both his own and lends itself to a Pryda Friends release. Arias has been quiet recently, but with these two releases in the past two months, it is great to hear his sound again.

Progressive House | Fehrplay – I Can’t Stop It

Posted by on January 14, 2013

One of the names to watch in 2013, Fehrplay makes his return to Eric Prydz’s Pryda Friends imprint with his debut 2013 release “I Can’t Stop It”. The Norwegian producer provides us with the hallmarks of what we can expect with a Fehrplay production and Pryda Friends release — subtly and melodic complexity. Getting its first play on EPIC radio 005 and later being chosen as an essential new tune by Pete Tong, Fehrplay uses a rolling bass line with euphoric synth chords and prominent arps, aided by entrancing vocals to create a complete, full body track sure to remain prominent for the first few months of the year..
