On saturday we drove to Cologne to see Eric Prydz and Jeremy Olander live at Bootshaus and this was an event we will never forget. The crowd was just amazing and the music both played was just outstanding. In conclusion it seems to be the best gig of Eric where we have attended to. To show you how amazing this night was we shot a lot of footage.
After 4 hours in the bus we arrived at Bootshaus at about 10 pm. Inside it seemed to be as cold as outside and the first hour the only thing we could care about was the temperature and not the music played by the warm-up dj.
Two hours later, about 10° C warmer due to more people at the dancefloor, Jeremy Olander started playing his set and began to bring the crowd into the right mood for Eric. After seeing Jeremy on Christmas in Hanover we already knew that he can play good sets but this time the crowd was more open for his sound which made a better atmosphere in the club.
Jeremy played a lot of great tracks like “Rypamont” “Ganza” or his 2012 version of “Loveflight” but two highlights of his set for us were definitely his amazing edit on Gotye’s “Bronte” and “You” aka “Privilege ID” by Eric Prydz. Eric was in the booth while Jeremy was playing and seemed that he really enjoyed the whole atmosphere in the club and it looked like he was telling Jeremy to play out the “Privilege ID”.
About two hours later when the crowd was ready for Eric, he started his set with “Welcome”. We have seen some Prydz events so far – just can’t get enough – but the reactions when Eric started or actually the reactions during his whole set were simply amazing. The people were just there for the music and that’s what we really liked about this evening. As expected Mr. Prydz played some unknown new stuff, especially the ID we already previewed was something we enjoyed a lot, but you can’t have ONE favourite after such a good set.

We don’t want to bore you with more sentences as we think the videos speak for themselves and you can definitely feel how big that night was!
All in all: Stunning night. Thanks to Jeremy, Eric for the music and of course to Chris and Fadma for doing those events!
