Eric Prydz’ music career received a massive boost after he released the #1 UK hit ‘Call On Me” based on a sample from a Steve Winwood track. Thanks to YouTuber HowardHandsTV, he has told the story of house originally Thomas Bangalter of Daft Punk fame and DJ Falcon 2 years earlier were playing in their club sets the famous sample over beats mainly as a dj tool.
The famous Ministry of Sound club and label approach the French djs and producers about releasing the track but the declined.
A year later, a similar track to what Falcon and Bangalter had been playing out was released by Prydz and went straight to #1 in the UK (and at least 8 other countries) in part with help to the famous (infamous ?) video of attractive women working out ala at an exercised class.
We highly recommend you sit back and set aide some time to watch this well produced video delving into the history of the various versions of ‘Call on Me’ that were floating around. In a bit of a surprising touch, the story ends up involving as noted before half of Daft Punk, David Guetta, Steve Winwood himself among various people contributing to the story.
