What a ledj. If you’re like us, you already know about this release. As a long time Pryda fan, I am still speechless about this one. I remember the days when we would have to wait literally YEARS for something like this (especially ‘Lycka‘) to see the light of day. Can’t express how glad I am to see Eric’s happy side show again. I mean I love the dark stuff, don’t get me wrong, but let’s face it, there really isn’t anything like a melodic Pryda anthem.

Over the last year, Fon.Leman has quickly become one of my favorite producers in all of music. He has, as friends Above & Beyond put it, “that all to rare progressive sound.” For lack of a better descriptor, Alex Leman is a unique talent. The depth and complexity of his music is extremely impressive, and his melodies seem to work in perfect unison while standing out individually as they completely entrance the listener. I for one cannot wait to experience one of his live shows. Here at AYNE we are all about the vibes, and with Alex, they are quite strong. I just pre-ordered the album. You should probably go ahead and do that, or simply purchase a copy when it comes out tomorrow. I have been drooling over “Constant Religion” for weeks now, and it will be on repeat until the new year and will be an inspiration to my original work in 2014. For all of us, we thank you Fon.Leman, for these 12 truly beautiful songs. If you aren’t on the BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix by February, I will be extremely upset and confused. Cheers my man. This album is legendary, and I have to say, I have listened to this guest mix at least 5 times. I get emotional every time. Oh and one more thing…follow Intricate Records, they are doing some big things over there these days. You won’t be disappointed.
