How Eric Prydz Stole 'Call on Me'

GB A monster story behind the smash hit      07/03/22

Whether you like it or not, you probably heard 'Call On Me' when it was out in 2004 and if you remember the song, the video will likely also be burned into your retinas. Behind the song lies a fascinating story of sampling, collaborations, stealing and much more, as researched by HowardsHandsTV. In a veritable 'Who's Who' of dance music, we hear from the Daft Punk (RIP) duo Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter, Thomas Falcon, David Guetta, A-Trak, Bob Sinclair, Armand van Helden and or course Eric Prydz himself.   

Often a pop record sweeps the collective consciousness so intensely that it appears to have landed from another planet, but this story shows that behind the scenes, a world of influences, chance meetings, experimentation, and down-right sample stealing can come together over months and years to make a hit. Thoroughly researched and well explained, prepare to sit back and be enthralled.
