After a some silence we have gotten some audio from the tech house virtuoso. With a few edits here and there after Sloans Dress and collab work, eekkoo releases Just days apart a remix and a new original. We are first greeted with the original piece Cleopatra, filled with beautiful melody like the snake mistress’s gaze sucking you in to dark bassline as cold as stone. Following that, a remix for the techno cats pouncing the dance floors with Hanover by Jeremy Olander, with a playful melody and bass that purrs. Doing justice for the original track. Eekkoo seems to be picking up some activity with podcasts and the recent work, cannot wait to see what else he has coming up.
The magnificent and mysterious eekkoo has produced yet another powerful production in deep house and techno after releasing a handful of remixes and collabs. Not straying away from his moody personality in his music, he creates some downright heavy basslines with grooves unheard of with Sloan’s Dress. To really set the mood of the track we grabbed the video clip from eekkoo’s facebook profile with the main bassline over some hollow synths to preview before you take on the full track.
It was a matter of time but eekkoo has broken the bonds between him and mau5trap records to go onto new horizons. Since Joel AKA Deadmau5 has called upon eekkoo to work with him for his skillful production, eekkoo has been releasing some of greatest techno you will hear out of one artist! But with all that knowledge in music production, mau5trap records was only the beginning step to a stairway to great success!
One of his first releases on a new label eekkoo takes ANNA‘s Drum Machines Do Have Soul from Turbo Recording and gives it a darker sound with chopped vocals, downdriving basslines and analog synths. With original mix the Killing, eekkoo keeps the techno on the uptempo side with claps, hihats and choppy vocals. This hypnotizing dance track is out for a free download, sort of a courtesy.
Most recently, eekkoo has made another remix. This time he joins Anjunadeep family for this release. On the 23th of October Lane 8 released a remix album of his house track Undercover featuring Matthew Dear. Including a few deep house tracks remixes by Wankelmut and Yotto, eekkoo’s techno rendition stuck out the most.
You got to hand it over to the choice artist pics of deadmau5. You will find some worth while artists listening to mau5trap on soundcloud. Eekkoo in particular had the honor of having Joel Zimmerman track him down on soundcloud. Since then eekkoo, aka Jon Doyan, has been releasing his master pieces of sound through mau5trap label.
It was not only style and sound that caught deadmau5 either. Rather it was also eekkoo’s immense knowledge of sound design. His experience cover producing, mixing and mastering his own tracks to teaching a production class in Montreal after years of self and professional study. Which he says helps him keep up to date with new technology. A definite advantage for his creative outlet among many. Doyan has also revealed to Thump.vice that he enjoys songwriting on the side of mixing and producing.
Further expressing his creative side he challenges himself to learn everyday with different projects. Since eekkoo favors techno vibes in his production he decided to take a spin on the original with his own dark and mellow sounds. Warren Avenue, one of his recent releases takes on a sound from the one of the birthplaces of techno house music; Detroit. In fact the track is named after a city street from there. Grab it for free on his soundcloud!
Eekkoo has also released an unnofficial remix of Jamie xx‘s song Loud Places. Turning his deep house style into a journey of uplifting sounds. Eekkoo, with this talent, may very well soon be a well known name around music community. With already good support and excellent playlist it seems likely.
