On a day in London that reminds us all just how far gone the summer is, Eric Prydz is happy to recount, in the fondest possible terms, experiences of his. If six appearances as a resident at Cream Ibiza, plus a set at the closing party aren't enough to make for a summer to remember, one party will always hold a very special place in his heart. "The highlight of the summer for me was a private party we held for my birthday on a beach in Ibiza," recalls Eric. "It was originally only meant to be for about 100 friends or family, but eventually more and more people turned up. I DJed, and so did some of my friends. It was a really special party." Prydz has certainly got about this year. As well as repeat trips to the White Isle, he managed to make it to Miami (albeit after flying to New York and traveling by train the rest of the journey) to play at his Pryda party as part of the Winter Music Conference. He also put a number of these parties on in London. All the traveling has paid off, however, given the amount of time it has provided Pryda to sit at his laptop with his headphones on and take in the moving scenery from numerous settings around the world. "I like traveling on trains," he says. "The visual movement outside the window often inspires the music that I make."
