Toby is a recording artist, performer and producer, known for his eclectic global dance and chill-out music. For the last 30 years, Toby has recorded and performed worldwide under the name Banco de Gaia, fusing house, dub, prog rock and world music elements to great acclaim.
More recently Toby has studied and developed his interest in electroacoustic composition and other areas of ambient electronic music. He is particularly interested in immersive sonic environments and the meeting point of deliberate and random composition. His live performances incorporate video imagery, generated live where possible, to create an engrossing and uplifting experience.
Since 2014 he has expanded his Disco Gecko label to release other artists and has created two compilations of downtempo grooves, atmospheric soundscapes and ambient moods, created by artists from across Europe. He has also begun hosting a monthly radio show for Glastonbury FM, his local station.
