For five years, Felipe (Fel) and Gustavo (Guk) of Felguk have been tearing up clubs and festivals of all kinds. In 2011, the Brizillian duo was placed in the top 100 DJ poll by DJ Mag. 2007 proved to be a break out year, as they received a personal phone call from Madonna. This led to producing a remix on the her album released on Warner Bros, Celebration. The remix titled '"2nite" was received well by Madonna and Warner Bros which led to a music video, and ultimately became the theme song for EDC 2010.

Since then, Felguk hasn't looked back. They've produced countless remixes and collaborations with David Guetta, the Black Eyed Peas and Flo Rida.The duo from Rio de Janeiro is set to start the first leg of their North American Tour at the Yost Theater tomorrow (March 1). After their California dates, they'll head to the East Coast for the Ultra Music Festival, tour with Benny Benassi in Europe and cap it all off by performing at the massive rave Tomorrowland in Belgium. Here's what Gustavo of Felguk has to say.

OC Weekly: How did you get your name?
Gustavo: The name is a mix of our names Felipe (Fel) and Gustavo (Guk). Felipe used to call me Guka, and it has stuck since.

Who are your influences?
We have many influences inside and outside of EDM. Our more direct influence is from dane, which include Deadmau5, Wolfgang Gartner, Dada Life and Skrillex. Outside of EDM we love and are influenced by rock music like Coldplay, U2, Led Zeppelin, System of a Down, Foo Fighters and all other kinds of rock music.

Tell me about your current US tour that kicks off this week.
Early March we only tour California, starting with the Yost Theater, then Avalon and finally stopping in San Francisco. Late march, we will hit the East Coast for the Ultra Music Festival, followed by other gigs.We have played both coasts before, and are very excited about Ultra, where we have never been. We are excited to see all our DJ buddies and friends. Also we can't wait to see all of the big shots in the industry. It will be really fun to be a part it for the first time, while we're are really excited about our mini tours.
