One can never have too many creative outlets, including Eric Prydz, who has launched the first release under yet another moniker.
The Tonja Holma name has certainly been heard by Prydz fans before, but outside of a few brief appearances during his BBC Radio 1 Essential Mixes, things had been quiet. This week, on November 13th, he released the first official Tonja Holma body of work, breathing life in to an alias many were unsure even existed.
The self-titled EP comes with four tracks in total and serves as the sophomore release on his newly founded Pryda Presents imprint following an impressive debut from rising talent Cristoph.
From the echoed synths of ‘Trippleton’ to the throbbing pulse of ‘Spanish Delight’, Prydz uses the new alias to explore various sonic outlets across a variety of styles and fabrics. ‘Loco’ takes a significantly slower approach, toying with the aural senses and letting trailing melodies, with an almost French electro touch, pave the way. Lastly, ‘Global’ is destined for the clubs with crisp hi hats and a funky lead bass that is accented by a scintillating synth over the top.
