Eric Prydz has always had the incredible ability to deliver both quality and quantity in abundance. With some of his biggest ID’s still remaining locked up in his vault of unreleased music, thankfully the ones that we have managed to get our hands on have cemented their place in dance music history. Already an infectious composition before Prydz added his exquisite touch, M83’s ‘Midnight City‘ encompasses all that we love about music, and the Swede brought a new dimension to the track that has made it a fan favourite over the years.
Feel-good, emotional and energetic, Eric Prydz’s Private remix celebrates it’s fifth birthday today. With its magical melodic sequence and astounding synth progressions, the track instantly captivates the audience, with the melodic elements of the track still sending shivers down your spine no matter where you hear them. What is most impressive about this track in particular is its simplicity – Prydz has an incredible ability to turn a basic looped hook into a euphoric masterpiece by adding various elements to change the intensity, and this is a prime example. So if their was ever going to be someone who could take this track and represent the dance music credibly, it was going to be the Swedish maestro – and as usual, he did not let us down.
Relive ‘Midnight City’ is all it’s glory below.
