Eric Prydz’ remix of Alter Ego’s ‘Rocker’ turns 15 years old


Eric Prydz has created many amazing remixes in his career so far, such as his remixes for tracks like M83’s ‘Midnight City’ or Digitalism’s ‘Circles’ but there’s one in particular that gets the cake as being arguably his best and that is his ‘Rocker’ remix. The original track by Alter Ego is already extremely well known in the scene but it was Eric Prydz that took it to brand new heights when it was released in 2004. Today, we celebrate this legendary remix by looking back on it’s impact on the scene and how well it has been received since.

There’s always that one particular track or remix that reminds people of fond memories and good times, and for a lot of people this remix is it. Having all the components of classic Prydz, it was a major hit back in the day (and still continues to be!). Its big danceable factor made it popular at all the events and it’s no wonder why. Released on the SKINT imprint, it still continues to be at the forefront of people’s sets with Laidback LukeLumberjack and even Tomorrowland’s very own radio station One World Radio showing it some love over the years.

We can guarantee that if this track got dropped in sets right now, crowds would have the same huge and loving reactions now as they did back then!
