3. CIREZ D “DRUMS IN THE DEEP” [ORIGINAL MIX] (MOUSEVILLE) Release Date: 2013-5-6edmcharts_pryda

Rating: ★★★★

Genre: TECHNO

Origin: SWEDEN

Description: The Swedish house master Cirez D AKA Eric Prydz once again is on the charts with “Drums in the Deep”. This techno release again goes right back to Prydz’ roots of industrial techno under his label Mouseville. Deep and dark filtered vocal loops and steady bassline give it the true warehouse feel. It’s great to see an artist be successful doing something that is different and not so mainstream. 2013 is clearly the year of Prydz.
