Eric Prydz was born on 19th July 1976, in Sweden. He is a DJ and a record producer, who currently lives in California. Prydz also works under pseudonyms Pryda and Cirez D. He is particularly famous for such hits as “Call on Me”, “Proper Education”, and “Pjanoo”.
Music became Eric’s hobby when he was still a young boy. He started playing the piano when he was still in preschool. The boy convinced his parents to buy him a synth so he can start learning how to make his own music using Depeche Mode style.
In 1994, Eric became a drummer in one of the local electropop band. But soon he quit the group to start working with two of his friend, who had a small studio. The three young men started creating their own music. In order to earn money while recording the music, Prydz worked at local nightclubs as a DJ. Gradually Eric became so interested in DJing that started creating real hits. One of his tracks made its way to EMI Records and Eric’s career as a DJ took off.
