He also releases music under the aliases of Cirez D, Pryda and Sheridan. Prydz produces electronic music which falls into a variety of sub genres, most notably house (Including electro house and tech house), minimal, and techno; which showcases light elements of trance in his sets.

Releases on Mouseville Records pay tribute to the underground techno roots of his homeland, Sweden. The large demand for this label has been throwing dance floors into a frenzy with his “Knockout EP” selling over 18,000 copies on vinyl. The more melodic/harmonic Pryda label showcase his early house influences with harmonies, melodies and hooks intertwined with his signature booming bass lines. These two labels are solely for Eric’s own productions and serve as vehicles to release music with a true underground feel, no deadlines, or pressure.
Prydz has enjoyed outstanding chart topping success with the singles “Proper Education” and “Call on Me”, the latter sampling the chorus of Valerie (the only sample ever allowed of Steve Winwood’s work), which topped the UK singles charts for 5 weeks. “Proper Education” reached number 2, 4 and 12 in the UK, German, and Swedish charts respectively.
Although it is reported that Eric Prydz has a fear a flying, he does not let that stop him from playing in places such as New York, where he is scheduled to play Madison Square Garden in September 2014, as well as various countries in Europe, including the island of Ibiza, Spain.
