What is Eric Prydz’s net worth?
Eric Prydz is a Swedish DJ and producer who has a net worth of $10 million. Eric Prydz rose to fame in 2004 with his hit single “Call on Me.” He continued to achieve success with such singles as “Proper Education,” “Pjanoo,” and “Opus,” the latter of which was featured on his debut studio album of the same name. Prydz has won many accolades over the course of his career, including DJ of the Year at the Electronic Music Awards in 2017.
In 2004, Prydz had his commercial breakthrough with his single “Call on Me,” which is based on a sample of Steve Winwood’s 1982 song “Valerie.” The track charted in countries around the world, making it to number one on the singles charts in Germany, the United Kingdom, and Ireland, among other places. “Call on Me” also spawned an infamous music video featuring several women and a man doing sexually suggestive aerobics.
Proper Education and Pjanoo
After “Call on Me,” Prydz had his next hit single with “Proper Education,” a remix of Pink Floyd’s “Another Brick in the Wall, Part II.” Released in Sweden in late 2006, it came out in the United Kingdom in early 2007, and reached number two on that country’s singles chart. “Proper Education” went on to earn a Grammy Award nomination for Best Remixed Recording. Prydz had another hit with his 2008 single “Pjanoo,” which was similarly successful in the UK, reaching number two on the singles chart and topping the dance chart for ten weeks.
In 2009, Prydz released the single “Miami to Atlanta.” Notably, it marked the first use of his signature Pryda snare, a technique that has since become common in trance and house music to delineate progressions in a song structure. Prydz went on to release a three-disc compilation album entitled “Eric Prydz Presents Pryda” in 2012. Following that, he rolled out the project “PR(10)DA,” a series of EPs featuring previously unreleased tracks. This culminated in Prydz’s debut studio album, “Opus,” in early 2016. A solid commercial hit, the album included the singles “Every Day,” “Liberate,” “Generate,” “Last Dragon,” and the title track. Prydz put out a number of EPs in the years after “Opus,” including “PR(15)DA” in 2019.
Prydz has also released music under the name Cirez D. In late 2015, he released the EP “Vol D.” He has released tracks using a range of other aliases as well, including AxEr, Fiol Lasse, Hardform, and Tonja Holma.
On stage, Prydz is known for his big, extravagant concerts using cutting-edge technology. In 2014, he debuted EPIC 3.0, a concert at Madison Square Garden featuring what was called the world’s largest indoor hologram at 20 meters tall. Prydz took things to an even grander level in 2019 for EPIC 6.0, which included a multistory transparent LED holosphere composed of 72 interlocking panels containing more than 2.4 million LEDs.
