After debuting as Zane Lowe’s “Hottest Record In The World” two weeks ago, Eric Prydz take on CHVRCHES "Tether“ which Extended Mix is now out on Beatport HERE.

When Eric Prydz adapts an existing track it’s never something to be taken lightly, it’s a rare occurrence and something special. Little wonder then that Tether’s momentum has continued with BBC Radio’s Danny Howard giving ”Tether“ his coveted ”Future Anthem“ spot, and the track receiving over 300,000 streams online.

With ”Tether“ Prydz has produced yet another track that is sure to soundtrack festival stages and club dancefloors for the remainder of 2015. Gushing synthesizer rolls and melodic progressions carefully cradle Lauren Mayberry’s original verses, transforming the down-tempo original into an upbeat and uplifting lesson in proper nu-age prog house.

Listen to ”Tether“ below:

“Eric Prydz, he just does not slip ever… once again delivering that perfect accompaniment to a near perfect song” – Zane Lowe BBC Radio 1

It’s not often that a musician can deliver quality so consistently, let alone across a musical spectrum that ranges from progressive house to underground techno. In a year that saw him play Madison Square Garden, go back to back with the enigmatic deadmau5, and steer Pryda Recordings to new heights, it’s refreshing to see Eric refusing to bow to trends and continuing to blaze his own path.

American fans can catch Prydz on his near sell-out Generate Tour, a concept that perfectly encapsulates Prydz’ determination of doing things his own way, playing extended sets in exclusively small club venues.
