Eric Prydz needs no introduction. This past weekend in Miami, Prydz hosted one of Miami Music Week’s most buzzed about parties, lining up Joris Voorn, Claude VonStroke, Kolsch and Jeremy Olander to join him for a 17 hour session on the legendary Space Terrace. While his Ultra Music Festival performance, which saw him guest slot for Armin van Buuren State of Trance Stage, was one of the most talked about sets of the festival, there was already plenty to talk about. From the porta potty girl at Ultra on the first day to the Justin Bieber and Krewella drama as always, meanwhile quite possibly the best set of the entire weekend was quietly dropped by Eric Prydz. 'Generate' was one of the few tracks from his Ultra set that could be identified and blew fans away upon leaving the speakers in Miami. ‘Generate’ features a sharp yet angelic top line that gently weaves in and out across a sea of classic Prydz progressive elements. Whirring synthesizer play enshrouds an addictively simple yet layered bassline throughout, all of which combine to form another quintessential Prydz release. Officially debuted by Danny Howard this past Saturday as a “Future Anthem’, ‘Generate’ sets the stage for a massive 2015 for one of the world’s most beloved DJs, as 2015 is already shaping up to be another epic year for Eric. He started the year with a BBC Essential Mix with his Pryda protégé Jeremy Olander, and he’s already nabbed a BBC Radio One ‘Hottest Record In The World’, and is coming off a sold-out North American Generate club tour, which saw Prydz playing extended sets in intimate venues. The only route to identify 90% of the tracks played in this set are by the venue where the ID was premiered. A State of Trance welcomed the legendary producer and he did what does best, deliver. An hour and a half set of 90% new material from one of the world's best producers, it doesn't get much better than this.
