Pryda, “Backdraft” [Pryda Recordings]
Eric Prydz revived his Pryda alias this week with a four-track eponymous EP. While upbeat progressive tracks like “Mija” and “Axis” recall Prydz’s classic sound, “Backdraft’s” hypnotic techno groove may be more indicative of where the versatile producer’s output is heading.

In their “Future Summer” series’ latest installment, Chicago duo Autograf give the Swedish House Mafia standard a much-needed summer makeover with this cover’s mellow melodic touch and easygoing female vocals.
WHYT NOYZ, “Jingles” [Minus]
The talented UK techno duo explores shadowy textures and mesmerizing arpeggiators on their latest Minus effort’s lead track.
Alex Niggemann, “Earth Symphony” [Last Night On Earth]
