ERIC PRYDZ VS. CHVRCHES – TETHER //
After debuting as Zane Lowe’s “Hottest Record In The World” two weeks ago, Eric Prydz take on CHVRCHES ‘Tether’ will today be released in extended form on Beatport through Prydz’ Pryda Recordings.
When Eric Prydz adapts an existing track it’s never something to be taken lightly, it’s a rare occurrence and something special. Little wonder then that “Tether’s” momentum has continued with BBC Radio’s Danny Howard giving ‘Tether’ his coveted ‘Future Anthem’ spot, and the track receiving over 300,000 streams online.
With ‘Tether’ Prydz has produced yet another track that is sure to soundtrack festival stages and club dancefloors for the remainder of 2015. Gushing synthesizer rolls and melodic progressions carefully cradle Lauren Mayberry’s original verses, transforming the down-tempo original into an upbeat and uplifting lesson in proper nu-age prog house.
