Eric Prydz unveils “Tonja Holma” alias on 4 track EP

Always one to push the boundaries when it comes to production, Swedish DJ Eric Prydz has carved a reputation as something of a genius, utilising layered chords, and long electro-laden build-ups to create progressive masterpieces.

Whether producing under his Eric Prydz, Pryda (progressive) or Cirez D (techno) monikers, you can always ensure that a Prydz production will be rubber-stamped with a hallmark of the highest quality. Now, the Swede has unveiled his latest alias, titled Tonja Holma. The iconic producer has donned a fourth alias to expand his musical universe beyond even his prodigious catalog.

Holma is about exploring electronic textures and disco grooves through fat filtered synths and steady beats. It’s a futuristic sound for whatever interstellar dance floors he had in mind when it came to creating this new sound, but unsurpisingly, the move has been viewed as a huge success, with Prydz – or should we say Tonja – storming to the top of the Beatport charts ahead of FISHER‘s highly acclaimed ‘Oi Oi’ EP, which has been destroying dancefloors worldwide.

The 4-track EP marks a cool new direction for Prydz’s artistic vision, with bouncy Daft Punk-esque sounds and a more ambient feel than his previous work. You can check it out on Soundcloud here.
