The Secret Formula.

Want to make a multinational club hit? Want to make a song so catchy, that years after it's release, people will still be singing it under their breath as they walk to work in the morning? Then follow the Eric Prydz Signature Secret Formula.

STEP ONE:
Find any old 80's, or early 90's song. Maybe Toto, Steve Winwood, Eurythmics, or Howard Jones.


STEP TWO:
Locate the chorus of the song you selected, and grab a line of the vocal or two. Example: "Call on meeeee! Call me!" "It's gonna take a lot to take me away from you!" "And are you still scared? aaaaaah! well I won't stop and bother!"


STEP THREE:
Write a stereotypical prog. house percussion track, and lay the sample in an endless loop over it. Sidechain.


STEP FOUR:
Apply long, drawn-out progressive cutoff filtering, and then add cheap free-VST style synthesis.


STEP FIVE:
Send it to Ministry Of Sound, press millions of copies, become rich and overrated.


Sounds easy enough, right? So basic, so simple... yet why does it only work for Eric Prydz? I don't know. But it's fricking AWESOME.

it also helps if the original song sucks but has good vocals.. and also no one's heard of it.

Boba Fettuccini said...

helps, yes, but Toto, Howard Jones and all those are HARDLY things no one's ever heard of. Africa was a billboard #1 hit in '83.

And if you're saying Valerie and Africa suck... we're going to ahve to have a little talk. T_T

great article, and by great I mean GREAT

good tips here, i liked

Martin said...

sorry to tell you, but at least the last track isn't Eric Prydz! That's a track from Marcus Levin.

Champiness said...

I was expecting you to apply this formula to a song of your own. You could use the money to help fund the blog.

Boba Fettuccini said...

@Martin: it's Prydz. it came on his promo CD ;)

My personal belief is that Marcus Levin is a pseudonym of Prydz. I'm not sure, but Levin also has a track called Take Me Away which is exactly the same, released about the same time Eric Prydz 2005 promo CD was released.

@Champi:
I would, but I can't, due to progressive filtering in Sony Acid basic being impossible, and secondly, because Prydz already got all the best samples for that sort of thing.

Funkow said...

Strangely good stuff from Eric , actually havent heard any of these songs , very mainstream-like sounding , but its still good

mutt said...

@Boba Fett - that 2005 promo from Pryda was labeled fake pretty fast. Take a look at the official swedish house mafia forum for more fake labeled tracks: http://www.swedishhousemafia.com/viewtopic.php?t=105

Not really sure about Draft (though i think its fake), but Fading like a flower and Take me away are not Eric Prydz tracks. Get your facts straight.

Come on. Eric Prydz isnt some cheap bedroom mash-up producer. Personal taste about music set aside, all releases from Prydz is pure quality productions. He is a really great producer.

Boba Fettuccini said...

That site doesn't cite a single source. In addition, it says the Take Me Away 2007 (Electro Mix) is fake, not Eric Prydz - Take Me Away. When you can cite valid sources, I'll believe you.

Boba Fettuccini said...

FYI, I'm not trying to rude and stuck-up. i'm just saying that I'm gonna believe they're not fake til I have solid proof. Innocent til proven guilty.

mutt said...

@Boba Fett: it's been pretty much common knowledge (here in sweden at least) that a lot of fake tracks "from" the house mafia is out there. i promise you, those tracks are not eric prydz :)

check out his discography on ericprydz.com if the fake list on the forum isnt enough. its pretty solid.

Alex said...

i've looked into Discogs and neither him nor his aliases have released any of those tracks.

Boba Fettuccini said...

Unofficial releases happen... >_>

It's not that I don't believe you so much as I don't WANT to, because then that makes me into a dupe :p

prez jordan said...

I wish I could chime in, but I don't know anything about Pryda :D

Johnny Bravvo said...

This post is genius. I'm gonna be the next Eric Prydz but I'm gonna do it using all Rick Astley. I like a challenge. Holla.

Boba Fettuccini said...

Use one of his less obvious songs. :D I got his album, and all the songs sound almost exactly the same. XD

mutt said...

haha. well, just take my word for it. i've met prydz a couple of times, both pre- and post call on me, and the integrity of that guy is extreme. he wouldnt release anything sounding like this. call on me was an experiment and at first no one even believed THAT to be prydz. Bangalter of Daft Punk was rumoured to be the producer, then Winwood himself pointed out pryda and the rest is just a long road of bad copies.
