"Best known for his 2004 hit single "Call On Me", which sampled Steve Winwood's hit "Valerie", which topped the UK singles charts for five weeks and also number one on the German Top100 for six consecutive weeks, he gained recognition to both underground and mainstream fans. In 2006, he released a remixed version of Pink Floyd's "Another Brick in the Wall, Part 2", entitled "Proper Education", with a video.
Since 2005, Prydz has been working on an artist album. The first version of the album was originally planned for release in 2007, but after complications with the record label, Ministry of Sound, he decided to cancel the release. In late 2009, Prydz told followers on his Facebook and Twitter accounts that his album had been completed and was going to be a Pryda album.
Finally, in early 2012, was revealed that it will be released as a 3 x disc album on May 21 through Virgin Records. Disc 1 is made up of new unreleased Pryda productions which some fans may have heard as works in progress (including Shadows, Agag, Mighty Love, Allein and the intro edit of Pjanoo). Discs 2 and 3 bring together many of the classic tracks from the Pryda catalogue, sequenced and mixed by the man himself, including some of his special re-edits.
The Ministry of Sound club in London hosted the launch of the 'Eric Prydz Presents Pryda' album on April 14, where Eric played some of the tracks from the album.
The bonus, for those who purchased the album legally, is free download of 'Tijuana', a track previously known as 'Space Miami ID', in .WAV format."
