“Pjanoo” (pronounced ‘piano’) is a keyboard-based house track by the Swedish DJ and producer Eric Prydz. It has received moderate airplay amongst British radio stations, being heavily used by BBC Radio 1 in advertisements for their “Radio 1 Big Weekend” and “Weekend in Ibiza” events. The song was very successful in the UK, peaking on the UK Singles Chart at #2, and the UK Dance Chart at #1 for ten non-consecutive weeks.
Prydz stated in an interview with BBC Radio 1 that he wrote the track in 1996. When played at a show in Stockholm, the track didn’t gain any interest from the clubbers. Prydz forgot about the track until he found it in his collection at a recent show and decided to play it. A fan in the crowd filmed him playing it live and posted it on Youtube. This gained much popularity on the video site and Prydz decided to release it as a single. Download the single here. Enjoy!
