Eric Prydz is one of the big bosses of the club music scene. He’s a producer’s producer, the kind of guy who pushes sound forward while maintaining ties to the culture’s historic roots. The chance to have him remix one of your tunes is a big pat on the back, and CamelPhat and Cristoph have earned the privilege.
The original tune “Breathe” is deliciously haunting and invigorating with sensuality. It’s a driving house groove built from fuzzy synth rhythms and ambient strings over a steady tempo. Singer Jem Cooke is soulful and desperate as she belts over the build toward ecstatic club release.
Prydz stretches the song, more than doubling its length with smooth confidence like cotton in his fingers. He pumps the beat with 50 ccs of industrialism, adding a little more pulsing techno to its bleeding heart. None of the emotion is lost in translation as it swirls with dusty colors like a super nova.
Prydz’ remix of “Breathe” is perfect for getting lost in the darkest corners of your mind or the night. It’s out now on Pryda Presents. Listen to it below.
