“If Everyday Goes Like This, How Do We Survive?
We’re Working Late On The Night Shift To Get Peace Of Mind…”
-John Ciafone, vocals on “Every Day” by Eric Prydz
I just can’t get this one out of my head. In case you missed it, Eric Prydz [finally] released his latest track “Every Day” this past Monday the 15th, complete with a remix by the amazing Fehrplay (show him some Facebook love, this dude has pure talent). This track, as admitted by Prydz on his Epic Radio podcast 003, has been in the works for a while and only recently did he finalize the sound. I was fortunate enough to hear him play “Every Day” at Identity Festival over the summer and the vibe it created was out of this world. It didn’t hurt that the Comcast Center speakers were maxed out on volume either.
The original mix of “Every Day” is, for lack of a better word, beautiful. It gives me chills every time I hear it, with a lead synth and kick drum we’ve grown accustomed to hearing from Prydz. We’re not, however, used to hearing vocal tracks on every single Prydz release, but I think on this track they are quite fitting.
When comparing and contrasting the Fehrplay remix to the original mix, I notice two different styles: one is an anthem and one is a dance floor destroyer. Feherplay’s remix sounds to me like what a typical Eric Prydz song would sound like (check out most songs on his Pryda album). The remix has less emphasis on the vocals and more emphasis on a driving bass line and something you want to nod your head to (and turn the volume up real loud). The contrast in the simplest form is the original mix belongs in the bedroom and the remix belongs in the clubs. Either way, both are excellent Progressive House tunes that are on par with both artists’ previous works – and we hold them to very high standards.
Pick both tracks up at Beatport HERE – they’ve already broken into the Top 10.
If you’re lucky enough to be in the NYC area on Thanksgiving Eve, you MUST go to this event at the Roseland Ballroom (notice what song was used?):
