Eric Prydz – Afraid of flying

No worries mates. It’s not a new track. Or you would already heard the rumors.

Rather an interesting fact about the Sweden’s number one DJ and producer. Few people know that Mr Prydz is not very keen of flying (airplanes that is). More specifically, it completely scares the shit out of him.

This Saturday Eric was supposed to play in Malta for the first time ever. At a massive 4000+ event at Gianpula, one of the island’s most hi-tech clubs. The plan was to load Eric and the crew on the train and get him all the way to Milan to minimize his airtime.

To the huge disappointment of the 4000 Maltese party goers who payed 20-55 EUR for their tickets, Prydz did not show up. According to the official organizers of the event, Eric experienced a heavy panic attack before stepping on the plane in Milan. The medications did not do it this time. According to our contacts, the party was still a blast. But except for being hangover, the whole Malta was also very pissed off the whole Sunday. Some people still are.

So, we call out to you, our dear readers. Does anyone know about a scientifically proved treatment to cure flying anxiety? If yes, let’s start a donation circle “Bloggers petition to cure Eric”. A 10 EUR a head is more than enough to pay for the treatment. Well, and the train ticket.

Big thanks to PurePat for the tip

P.S. Sunday mixtape is a bit late due to technical problems in Stockholm. Stay tuned
