Releases from Eric Prydz are all too infrequent, but from his addictive singles to his stunning shows, the iconic dance music producer's content consistently embodies a timeless quality.
One particular house music connoisseur shopping on Discogs recently came to the same conclusion, except they put their money where their mouth is and purchased a rare vinyl copy of Prydz's Opus for $2,000. The purchasing price was enough to land the buyer at #24 on Discogs' monthly top 30 list of expensive purchases on the marketplace.
