Eric Prydz (SE)

Of all the DJs present in the Top 100, few are as versatile as Eric Prydz. The Swedish jock might have burst on to the scene over a decade back with the Marmite chart invader that was ‘Call on Me,’ but ever since then; he’s cleverly straddled the mainstream and the underground; the latter most notably as a result of his well-trodden aliases, Cirez D and Pryda. What all this means is that he’s rapidly expanded his fan-base in the process, while a recent move to Los Angeles has only seen his popularity soar even further amongst the EDM elite. On a production note, Prydz is still widely influential too. One glance at the Beatport Top 100 showcases the fact, as the likes of Martin Garrix and Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike have both adopted similar song structures in their music. But then imitation is the highest form of flattery, and Eric Prydz has always been a leader rather than a follower. Just don’t expect him to change any time soon.
