Sensorium Galaxy is preparing for quite the launch later this year, lining up a whole host of DJ talent to perform exclusive shows. The latest to join the roster is award-winning producer Eric Prydz – best known for songs like Call on Me – who’ll be performing in Sensorium Galaxy’s PRISM world.
Prydz is the first artist to be revealed this year, joining the likes of Carl Cox, David Guetta, Armin Van Buuren, Black Coffee, and Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, who were all confirmed in 2020. They’ll all be hosting a series of exclusive performances in PRISM, an area of Sensorium Galaxy dedicated to music incorporating a brutalist and futurist aesthetic. In this virtual world, users can view performances from multiple angles, heights, and even see through the DJ’s eyes.
Known for his visceral and ambitious productions, Prydz will be bringing that same methodology to Sensorium Galaxy. In addition to the shows, he’ll be appearing in the platform’s international brand reveal campaign ‘The Chosen Ones’, a series of short videos introducing people to the music-dedicated virtual world.
“I believe metaverses are taking digital events to the next stage, which is one of the main elements that has drawn me to this project,” said Prydz in a statement. “Working with cutting edge technology to deliver special performances has always been mine and my team’s goal, but to now take what we do in a physical space into a digital environment, creating endless possibilities, is so exciting!”
“PRISM is a unique destination for artists. Our virtual setup is constantly mutating based on music. And that’s exactly why this collaboration with Eric is so great,” adds Sasha Tityanko, Deputy CEO for Sensorium Galaxy. “His distinctive progressive style matches perfectly with our goal to create out-of-this-world immersive experiences for users.”
While Sensorium Galaxy is focusing on music as its party piece its still being designed as a social metaverse where everyone can hang out and experience exciting virtual worlds. Alongside PRISM there will be the Sensorium Starship which acts as the hub and Motion World, a relaxing destination where you travel underwater listening to music.
