Elektrofant is an electronic act from Sandnes, Norway. The band was formed in 2001 by Klaus Skrudland. Trond Anfinnsen was also part of the band until 2004, and was then replaced by Knut Jonas Sellevold.
Their unconventional take on dance music, both in production and instrumentation, gave Elektrofant an unmistakably unique sound from the very beginning. They debuted with a loud bang when they released the Flipstick EP in 2003. The opening track, also named Flipstick, became a huge radiohit and has since then been regarded as a Norwegian electronic music classic.
In 2004, their first LP "Wørk!" was released, which kept the original sound, but also added elements from rock and soul music, as well as some vocals. This record was also very well received by both press and fans and also gained international attention.
After these two records, a bunch TV and radio shows and extensive touring both in Norway and Europe, Elektrofant disappeared from the music scene in 2008. Eight years later, they suddenly reemerged from their hiatus, with a banging new album called "1992". The new record is nothing less than strutting tribute to the old school techno and dance music from the early nineties. Even more, it brings back the classic, analogue, playful, unorthodox, colorful and hard hitting, groovy Elektrofant sound.
