Look out, mau5trap fans, there’s a new kid on the block who’s packing serious heat. Eekkoo, the label’s latest signee, dropped his latest single LZRD this week, and best of all, he’s giving it away for free.
Jonathan “Eekkoo” Doyon may be new to the ‘trap, but he’s no newbie–he’s actually a professor of technical production, and has been producing everything from hip hop to house to techno for the better part of a decade. Five years after crossing over into techno from hip hop he caught the attention of deadmau5, and the rest is history.
LZRD is the perfect entry point into Eekkoo’s music, a minimal, hard-in-the-paint techno joint that’s just bursting at the seams with immaculate sound design. Professional training isn’t everything, of course, but Eekkoo strikes a fine balance between technical skill and songwriting chops, and does so in such a way that it appears effortless. There can be no doubt that Eekkoo is one to watch–for now, score LZRD for free via THUMP.
