Biography

There are two artists that have used the moniker Ekko

The albums Centripetal and Ekkocentric are by a group called Ekko, a project by Adham Shaikh with collaborators Kenyon Field, E. Shankar & A. Larouche. They produced ethnic ambient/dub.


Originally an alias or solo project for Danish composer and multi instrumentalist, Frithjof Toksvig, born 1962. Frithjof Toksvig used to play in the Danish art-pop group The Poets (originally Poets Of The Signature, in the US and Canada known as The Sealand Poets). Having left this band in 1993, Toksvig formed the Danish-Spanish ambient trio Deepfried Toguma two years later, releasing two albums, “Subtic” and “The Hi-Fi Companion” with this outfit. In recent years Frithjof Toksvig has been a much acclaimed film score composer in Scandinavia as well as a producer and remxer for big Danish acts like Swan Lee and Mikael Simpson. “I Know I Am Human” was his first release as a solo artist, but under the alias Ekko. At the time being (2009) Ekko is transforming into a proper band. Band members being - amongst others - drummer Niclas Tange (ex-The Poets/The Sealand Poets), guitarist Moe Lind and vocalist Gustav Carl Rey Henningsen Jr. - the last two both from Deepfried Toguma.
