After arriving by train from L.A., Prydz spent most of the day of the show at the venue prepping new edits of classic Pryda tracks and putting the finishing touches on new, unreleased tracks. "For me to go back and play a track I made five or six years ago in its original form, that's a bit boring," he says. "I always do EPIC edits of my tracks, and that's what I did this time around, too."

Jamming

Prydz watches Immersive's Martin Harvey working on the server. “With EPIC 2.0 my team and I decided we didn’t want to be boring, we will do all the shows live,” Prydz said. “It’s not just me playing whatever tracks I want, it’s live across the board, the visuals are live, the music is live, it’s just like we are all jamming.”

Flying

"Everyone knows I don't like to fly. Maybe this should be my new method of transport." Prydz heads across Manhattan from the venue to his hotel.

Black Dice

The Black Dice image assumes a hologram form above Eric as he plays. "We created this image to go with my Vegas residency, Black Dice. It's all about bringing a darker Pryda sound to Vegas. I love the image, and it was great to incorporate it into the EPIC shows."
