As two brands who share a passion for electronic music and the energy of festivals, we partnered up with GURU Energy Drink to present our Q&A With an Igloofest DJ series. To help you get to know the men and women behind the hardware, we spoke with some of the top DJs performing at Igloofest this year!

Igloofest warriors: Montreal’s own Jonathan Doyon—better known as Eekkoo—will be making an appearance down at the Old Port this Saturday! Not your average DJ, Doyon is a studied and seasoned producer with a sound engineering background. After years of producing hip-hop, techno, and house, he began focusing on his own music and was handpicked by Deadmau5 to be on his label. Nowadays, Eekkoo is on the road and has just released a 1 hour mix that’s sure to get you pumped — take a listen below!

As you gear up for another weekend of partying in the cold, check out our Q&A with Eekkoo.
