Ekkohaus was born in Greece where he started to ?bang the drum?. There he received his first lessons in piano and later won a scholarship in an orchestra percussion course (early nineties). He studied vibraphone and marimba but after a few years of practice he realised that classical education was missing a very important ingredient, so he went looking for it…… He bought his first Roland drum machine and a cheap synthesizer and soon was transferring midi data between the 2 devices. In the late nineties, he was introduced to computer music and nowadays he combines software and hardware equipment for his production and live performances.
In 2002, Ekkohaus moved in London where he studied music technology (LCMM) and worked in a famous art gallery for 4 years. There, he settled in the East part of London, and mixed with a variety of cultures, individuals, music directions and fresh sounds? In 2008 he decided to move to Berlin and focus in the thing he loves most….music…… Ekkohaus has been spinning records since 2001 (resident at hobo and babalu, in Greece) and playing live since 2005….. His live sets are a mix of house grooves, dubby bass, quirky vocal samples and minimal structures…. His djing is very diversed also, like a glimpse of the future through a journey in the past….a sort of…time travelling experience…. The last few years Ekkohaus has been releasing his music in various labels (Morris Audio, Cargo Edition, Safari electronique, 2020 Vision, Multi vitamins, Level, Brut, Hudd Traxx and more….).
Although Ekkohaus is not a religious person, he is said to be member of a secret cult that claims to be in search of the magic loop, an ecstatic situation created by the monotonous repetition of a specific frequency or rhythmic sequence, whisper , rain etc
