Two giants are delivering pure listening pleasure this week; Pryda (one of Eric Prydz many alter egos) and Goldfrapp featuring Dave Gahan will definitely run warm on your vinyl players this week.
Earlier this month stated that he has a new EP coming out, the somewhat producer Eric Prydz has dropped a noisy four-track release, titled ‘Pry 039’, under his Pryda alter ego.
Eric Prydz impeccable production methods come out in full bloom for this powerful sonic journey and demands the attention of any progressive house fan. This new EP comes soon after Prydz shared with his fans a sneak peak into the stunning visuals that will be providing the backdrop to his forthcoming HOLO tour. He’s now announced the impending arrival of HOLO, the next phase and evolution of his incredible live shows. As the name suggests, HOLO will focus on the use of holographic technology for Prydz’s massive touring experience. The first stops to experience HOLO will land in Glasgow, Belfast and Creamfields later this year. Find the full list of tour stops here and keep an eye out for more dates to come.
Now let us check out the new songs:
In the beginning we also mentioned Goldfrapp and this is also one for the crowds. Depeche Mode frontman Dave Gahan has joined up with Goldfrapp for the track “Ocean” on which he sings a duet with Alison Goldfrapp. The original version of the song was featured on Goldfrapp’s “Silver Eye album” released last year. This version is 20 seconds shorter with Gahan on vocals as well.
The new version will appear on the upcoming deluxe edition of “Silver Eye” and is due out July 6th. The deluxe edition will also features remixes of songs on the album by a series of remixers including Goldfrapp’s Will Gregory and Hot Chip’s Joe Goddard.
“Working with Dave Gahan on the new version of ‘Ocean’ has been a real honor for us as a band,” Goldfrapp said in a statement, via Pitchfork. “We’re thrilled to finally share this collaboration with the world.”
In recent years, Gahan has been keeping himself busy by supplementing his work with Depeche Mode with outside projects. Last year, he sang on “Where I Wait,” a track by the electronic artist Null and Void, who has collaborated with Depeche Mode. He also put out a new album with Soulsavers.
Meanwhile, Depeche Mode put out their 14th studio album, Spirit, last year and have been touring the world in support of it. This week, they’re kicking off another North American leg of the tour, which will wrap in Toronto in mid June before they finish off the tour in Europe.
