Eric Prydz is a Swedish DJ - his new one is "Eric Prydz Presents Pryda" and it's on techno-friendly Astralwerks. One of my old girlfriends used to call this stuff "ant music," but it reminds me of middle school science class when we were studying the heart and circulation and all the blood cells were whizzing through the capillaries like bumper-to-bumper traffic on the 405 during rush hour, except they were moving at a brisk pace. The songs are fairly interchangeable - but this happens when your friends are machines but "SW4" (probably not a Terminator) rocks most memorably. EP would certainly have one of the tent venues at Coachella getting all jumpy in short order but I have a recurring question about these DJs. You usually only see the top half of them as they're surrounded by tons of gear - how do we know that's all not just stage props and they're just pressing "Play"?
