Cirez D is back with a vengeance bringing us a two track EP Thunderstuck and Drums In The Deep. Eric Prydz’s dark, heavy, techno alias returns in grand form as these tracks are nothing but awesome. I think some of Eric’s best work is done under his Cirez D alias and hopefully he releases more Cirez music this year.
Thunderstuck, not to be confused with Thunderstruck, is a banging progressive techno track. This song got premiered at Ultra and Eric played it at Coachella as well. The build is hypnotizing and the dark, echoing effects are powerful.
Drums In The Deep is the second track on the EP, and the title really says it all. The beat consists of a hi-hat and deep drum patterns. Breakdowns and haunting vocal samples turn this track on its side, only to return the slamming drums to get you moving. This song was first featured on Eric’s Essential Mix back in February. I’m glad the wait is finally over.
I encourage everyone to check out the rest of Eric’s releases as Cirez D. Some of my favorites include Glow, Full Stop, On Off, Horizons, and Mokba.
