Runner Up Prydz

Earlier in the summer we RAVED about how much we loved the new single from Pryda – ‘Niton’. An epic instrumental dance track of euphoric proportions. Well now it’s all set to get a UK release in a new form, and under Pryda’s more famous alias. Lyrics have been written, a vocal topline has been recorded, and it’s now going to be known as ‘The Reason’, by Eric Prydz featuring Jan Burton.

Unfortunately though, it’s not as amazing as it could or should have been. A big diva vocal would have elevated ‘Niton’ to an even higher place. But instead, we get practically whispered vocals in a subdued and downplayed melody. It’s still an incredible dance track of course, there’s no disputing that. But we do feel that the new topline should have accentuated the anthemic instrumental. Or at the very least, complimented it. But instead, if anything, the vocal perhaps only succeeds in taking away from it.

You can listen to both ‘The Reason’ and ‘Niton’ below.
