Eric Prydz playing at Glow at Lima Restaurant and Lounge Thursdays Cerberus : Hades :: Eric Prydz : House

Just as the three-headed dog guards the gates of the Greek Underworld, so too do Eric Prydz/Pryda/Cirez D guard the gates of house. Quiet and reserved, taking in his surroundings, crouching, patiently waiting; Prydz allowed the Glow crowd to enter with safety, moving closer and closer until it was too late. He struck first as Cirez D, with dizzying chords strumming across throbbing bass lines. Words simply cannot do justice to the infusion of life that surged through the crisp sound system of Lima Restaurant & Nightclub. Unleashing tracks like the dark and ominous “On Off” was his way of telling followers, “this is how house was meant to be played.”

A true master of progression; as the bodies began to fly (literally in some cases), as the temperature continued to rise, as icy blasts of smoke engulfed the audience, Cirez D gave way to Pryda. Lifting partygoers with airy interludes and abruptly returning them to earth with ferocious drops, it was reminiscent of riding The Big Shot on top of the Stratosphere in Vegas. There was no bigger thrill than when he teased the captivated audience with a remix of “Pjanoo,” inciting unfettered madness. The lights, the sounds, the rhythm of the crowd, the guardian of house does not perform a set, he provides an experience. Most DJs will tell you their goal is to push and pull the emotions of their followers. They are puppeteers manipulating not only the music but the crowd itself. Eric Prydz did just that as he took the reigns from Pryda and molded Daft Punk’s “Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger” better than anyone, less the Frenchmen themselves.

Last Thursday was easily one of the more reckless nights at Lima. The dance floor remained packed until the very last bit of sound had been expunged from the speakers. As he dropped his closer, the original mix of “Pjanoo,” bodies could be seen on shoulders, arms raised to the sky and looks of sheer elation on the faces of each and every person in the room. Many people spin Prydz’s music but there is nothing like seeing the master himself. For one night only the guardian of house allowed DC Clubbing to peer through the gates and bear witness to the growing myth that is Prydz, Pryda and Cirez D.

Glow is a weekly Electronic Dance Music party, held every Thursday at Lima Restaurant and Lounge, and every Saturday at Fur Nightclub.

    This was a great set by Mr. Prydz indeed. Glad he overcame his fear of flying and made it across the pond for our listening pleasure. Thanks to Panorama for booking a really great talent!! 🙂
