Eric Prydz has been a busy boy. In the midst of a packed schedule that will see him release three Pryda EPs and his debut studio album, he’s still found time to wow fans with yet another awe-inspiring anthem, the aptly named Opus.
Fans who attended or streamed Eric’s Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas set are unlikely to forget this closing track. The song opens with simple mandolin strings before slowly picking up speed as violins and drums add to the impending buildup. It continues to grow in scope before exploding with a highly cathartic burst of ebullient, progressive synths and Prydz’ signature kicks. People like to throw around the word ‘masterpiece’ quite often in reference to new releases, but you’ll be hard-pressed to argue that this one is anything but.
Stream it in full up above, and pick it up on Beatport July 27. While you wait, you can listen to and purchase the recently released Pryda 10 Vol. 1 EP here.
