Renown Swedish producer Eric Prydz loved M83′s electro-pop anthem so much he did his own remix that within hours of it leaking online became one of the most blogged remixes this year. That indelible hook of M83 leader Anthony Gonzalez’s synthesized vocal gets the royal Prydz “hands in the air” treatment as he expertly cranks up the bpm and weaves those haunting vocals in and out for a little slice of euphoria. Lucky for us his mix isn’t so private anymore. Check out the original Trentemoller, Man Without Country, Team Ghost and Big Black Delta remixes of “Midnight City”.
M83 is nominated for two 2013 Grammy Awards: Best Alternative Album for Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming and Best Remixed Recording for the Eric Prydz Private Mix of “Midnight City”
