Today the third episode of The Collaborators series has been released, adding to the ever increasing anticipation for the release of Daft Punk’s upcoming album Random Access Memories on May 21st. This episode features Nile Rogers, the legendary American guitarist and producer who has been behind countless hit records. Rogers was the first person involved with the upcoming album to allude that the french robotic duo had a new album in the works. As with the previous two episodes of the Collaborator Series this episode gives us some more insight into just how incredible this album will be.
The anticipation for Daft Punk’s upcoming album, ‘Random Access Memories’, is growing and growing as the release date of May 21st come closer. To celebrate the release of the album they have created a series of small videos featuring the collaborating artists on the album. This episode features Todd Edwards, a legendary house and garage producer who has previously worked with the duo. Just like the first episode with Giorgio Moroder, this video makes it ever more clear that this album will be nothing short of incredible.
It is my pleasure to publish the very first volume of our weekly mix that we will continue to release every Sunday from here on out.

Eric Prydz is a legend in the house music world. The Swedish producer has been a staple in the industry for many years now and is known for his countless dance music classics. He is known for his smooth, airy progressive style with euphoric melodies, infectious hooks and creative production. Eric Prydz also produces under a series of aliases, Pryda and Cirez D, yet for a while Mr. Prydz and his aliases have been somewhat quite. He lives in London and tours in Europe but hasn’t been to the US since 2007 (he is afraid of flying), lucky for all of us, Eric Prydz seems to be back in full force.
He announced he will be coming to the US and touring with Identity Festival, he recently released the first installment of his new podcast, but most importantly he has just released his 3 Disc ‘Pryda’ album. This 3 disc, 37 track, masterpiece has been eight years in the making and I must say it was well worth the wait. Each track is perfectly produced, with the classic Pryda progressive style. Despite having that signature Pryda style, each track is very different and unique. The album consists of many new tracks as well as retrospective mixes that feature some his great tracks and edits. So with no further adieu, Pryda. Enjoy!
