There is nothing like having your favourite artist, loving his music and enjoying every second every time you listen to their music. This was like James Lillo, a superfan who was suffering from stage four cancer, and had very little time to live. When Eric Prydz found out about this, he decided to do something and the response was amazing.
Eric Prydz decided to perform a very special show for James Lillo to allow him to see Eric perform. Sadly though, James passed away before the show every took place, but for him, I’m sure he revelled at the thought of Eric Prydz throwing him a party. As a mark of respect, Eric threw the parties and donated all the money raised to charity, throwing two shows instead of the planned one, with the response being unbelievable. But Eric Prydz also decided to take it one step better. With a brand new track under his belt, he has aptly named it ‘Lillo‘ as a mark of respect to James, and this is why he Eric is one of the most respected artists in the scene.
The Pryda track is one which brings emotion, energy and thought to the table. The sweet synth led melodies are where the emotion lays, where the track seems to bring such a calming, soothing nature in true Pryda style. It’s thought provoking and the hard hitting, upbeat energy is brought through to really celebrate the life of James ‘Lillo’. Eric Prydz has unleashed a true anthem in the form of this new track, and he has cemented James’ name into the history books, so that he will not be forgotten. Such a touching gesture and one which shows that all artists out there are human as well.
