Living up to the lofty standards of label-head and EDM icon Eric Prydz isn’t exactly easy, but that doesn’t seem to bother Norwegian progressive up-and-comer Jonas Von Der Fehr, aka Fehrplay. In only a few shorts months, Fehrplay has released I Can’t Stop It, a remix of Prydz’ own Every Day, and was recently featured on LessThan3’s Top Up & Coming Producers of 2013. His fourth single on Eric Prydz’ Pryda Friends imprint is titled Phantom, and it more than lives up to the hype.
First premiering on Fehrplay’s guest mix for Above & Beyond’s Group Therapy radio show, Phantom is a haunting progressive house tune that is exactly as advertised. Featuring a hypnotic lead, a melodic build, and uplifting synth work, Phantom is a piano club anthem reminiscent of Pryda’s earlier work and an epic release worthy of the Prydz name. This is the kind of song that will enthrall a crowd at the club or the beach — it’s just that good. Grab it now on Beatport.
