Emil was the driving force behind the electronica band Atoi, whose music defied categorization and resonated with music enthusiasts worldwide with their two album released on the record label Fake Diamond Records.

Atoi were discovered by Björk no less, who featured their own sublime cover of the track Army of Me on her Tsunami Benefit long player, ‘Army of Me – Remixes and Covers’.

Atoi played concerts at some of the most recognized venues and festivals like Roskilde Festival in Denmark, but also toured in Sweden and New York – Atoi was picked out for the Jenny Wilson tour in Denmark and they have supported James Blake in Copenhagen.
