Kenneth Christiansenʼs interest in electronic music goes a long way back. He started dʼing in 1991, in 1996 he started working in a record store in Copenhagen and in 1999 he opened up his own record store, Science Fiction. In 2001 he decided to close Science Fiction, and for three years he was responsible for all electronic music in Loud, one of the now long gone, but legendary record shops of Copenhagen.
In 2002 Kenneth founded the recordlabel Echocord. So far artists like Mikkel Metal, Fenin, Anders Ilar, Andreas Tilliander, Thomas Fehlmann, Substance, Vainqueur, Dub Tractor, Opiate, Dub Surgeon, Jan Jelinek, Resoe, Fluxion, Onmutu Mechanicks, Deadbeat, Luke Hess, Brendon Moeller, The Modernist and Michael Mayer has been releasing on Echocord, and in 2008 Kenneth Christiansen started the sister label Echocord Colour. Echocord Records is distributed via Kompakt in Cologne.
In the late nineties Kennethʼs djing started becoming more intense, and his international carreer was mainly kicked off by a number of Scape Showcases, bringing him to places like Sonar Festival – Barcelona, WMF / Berlin, Studio 672 / Cologne, Nousontourm / Frankfurt and many others, and finally, in the end of 2004, Kenneth decided to open up- and focus on a new club in Copenhagen, a place called Culture Box. Artists like Richie Hawtin, Carl Craig, Marcel Dettmann, Isolee, Luciano, Ben Klock, Wignomy Brothers, Thomas Fehlmann, Superpitcher, Barbara Morgenstern, John Tejada, DVS1, Shed, Sven Väth, Minilogue, Joy Orbison, Pole, Miss Kittin, Trentemøller, Daniel Miller, Oni Ayhun, The Orb, Luke Hess, James Blake, Mike Dehnert, Margaret Dygas, Kassem Mosse, Sascha Funke, Luke Slater and many others have visited Culture Box and the venue had become none less than a fixed institution in both Copenhagen nightlife- and Danish contemporary culture.
Besides Culture Box and Echocord, Kenneth also started producing- and releasing his own music; together with his old friend Resoe, they run the label- and the project Pattern Repeat.
This year, Echocord is celebrating itʼs 10th birthay, hosting showcases all over the world, with artists like Luke Hess, Mikkel Metal, Resoe, Fluxion, Deadbeat, Onmutu Mechanicks and of course Kenneth Christiansen himself on board.
