    Sónar by Night - SonarClub

Lord of the Dance-floor

This year SonarClub will host the monarch of the dance floor: Eric Prydz, for the first time. A multifaceted artist, the Swedish DJ and producer has an unsurpassed knowledge of all the tricks of the trade, following countless years of dedication in which he has continued to refine his unique take on dance music. Prydz's sound is instantly recognisable in everything he touches: electronic major chords and a pop beat,epic arrangements and euphoria inducing sound effects, and a spectacular live show to match.

Hailing from Sweden but a long term resident of Los Angeles, Prydz has spent his life striking a rare and perfect equilibrium between the underground and the mainstream. He is admired by the likes of Laurent Garnier and Four Tet (who recently remixed one of his tracks), whilst maintaining a fanbase of hundreds of thousands, who flock to his live shows the world over. He owns three publishing platforms, Mouseville, Pryda and Pryda Friends, and some of his songs (especially “Call On Me”) are club hits of our time. He is therefore one of an elite group of artists capable of bringing the huge SonarClub dance floor to boiling point at Sónar by Night.
