In conjunction with his forthcoming Astralwerks release Prydz Presents Pryda on May 22nd, Eric Prydz is excited to announce his first live dates in the U.S. since 2007 by joining the IDENTITY festival in 15 cities across the U.S. in July and August. The IDENTITY festival is North America’s first travelling electronic music festival and features the most cutting-edge acts in EDM presenting them in some of America’s most storied venues, arenas that were long reserved for rock bands.

A $25 All-In early-bird ticket special will be available for a limited time when tickets go on-sale April 24, 2012 here. A full list of cities and dates are listed below – tour stops include Boston, Atlanta, Miami, Dallas, San Francisco, San Diego, New Jersey, New York and more.

Astralwerks will be releasing two complete packages under the Pryda guise, Eric Prydz presents Pryda, on May 22nd.  These two products will be offered as both a single CD of rare, unreleased tracks AND a deluxe 3-CD set of those unreleased tracks plus a DJmixed retrospective of tracks originally released on Prydz’s acclaimed boutique label.  Preorder on iTunes:

Of the deluxe 3-CD set, Disc 1 will be made up of new unreleased Pryda productions which some fans may have heard as works in progress (including “Shadows”, “Agag,Mighty Love” and “Allein”).   Discs 2 and 3 bring together many of the classic tracks from the Pryda catalogue, sequenced and mixed by Eric himself, and including some of his special re-edits. Pryda has become a genre-defining stable and is one of the most successful and influential dance labels in the world.  This compilation album rounds up an incredible chapter in Eric’s career so far, laying the foundations for the next exciting phase.

Eric Prydz stands alone in his ability to mix commercial success with underground notoriety.  With his labels, Pryda and Mouseville he has been acknowledged by Beatport as one of their biggest selling artists of all time.  Both are held in the highest regard by an adoring underground scene and have allowed Prydz to remain something of an enigma while being a household name.

Since his arrival, Eric Prydz has inadvertently broken into uncharted territory for dance music. Festivals, events and venues across the planet have rocked to his performances, safe in the knowledge that they’re witnessing something special.  In 2011 Eric launched his innovative new show concept, ‘EPIC’, at London’s O2 Academy Brixton to a sell out audience.  This special show features exclusive cutting edge production, 3D holographic video projection and lighting systems. Coupled with Eric’s rousing music it is a ground breaking audio and visual feast.

Eric Prydz’s releases and forward-thinking live shows have allowed him to achieve worldwide recognition with his integrity intact.  Now signed to Astralwerks Records, Eric Prydz has started working on his much anticipated debut artist album, due for release late 2012.

With summer arriving on our doorsteps Cheap Chanel Handbags, all I can think about is bikinis and beach-y bags. This is the type of thing I could have imagined Suri Cruise wearing as a little tyke, but Im not sure that Id put a small child in something with such a conspicuous designer logo. Though Im rarely intrigued by Fendi anymore, the new Classico Zucca Baguette Bag is highly representative of what they do right simple, clean, crisp lines, combined with the classic logo pattern chanel crossbody bags. This particular auction ends in about 2 days, and bidding is still only at $255. Upon first glance, the use of geometry draws you into the Fendi Patchwork Textured Clutch. I just got back from a long day of shopping and driving along the countryside of Germany (which is beautiful by the way- maybe Ill show you all some pics later), and got an email from a reader, Denise, who thought I should check out this little number.Bonus: It earns of-the-moment, super-trendy points for its silver chain strap. The pleating at the bottom and cello-shaped seams on both sides are clever design features that give the tote character and depth.Which is why I cant really understand what happened with the Fendi Mini Snakeskin Beaded Peekaboo buy chanel handbags. I love the light colored linen, with the black illustration, and red leather piping. I dont see how turquoise metallic logo-printed leather attacked with cork-coated trim is meant to be wearable and stylish. This new lipstick red hue gives the smooth grained leather bag a shot of slick attitude and look-at-me bravado. Of course, a little update is necessary to appeal to todays modern woman, and its found here in the form of a very slim chain handle. The Diane von Furstenberg Stephanie? Woven Leather Clutch in Sunset Metallic ($395 at Net-a-Porter) is a soft sided woven leather clutch made of multicolored metallic leather adorned with a large tassel and wristlet strap. That bold color is punchy and fun, and its the perfect complement to a cute sundress or other warm weather ensemble. The roomy outer pocket is such a thoughtful detail in addition to just being a great embellishment, its also useful.
