Hoof (pronounced ‘Hove’ with a sharp F, it’s Dutch) has been the online name of Ruud van Wijngaarden for many years, but for most of the musical tracks, Hoof is actually two people. They are made in collaboration with Lique Angel: music encyclopediva, icon of good taste, artist, painter and best friend. She also painted the portrait that is used extensively for all Hoof related imagery.
Ruud does the technical stuff, arranges, programs, mixes, Lique provides her ideas and improvements, with hums, claps, sung melodies, special effects and beat boxing, until both are satisfied.
We have been dancing to and creating electronic music for more than 20 years. Only now the first tracks are being released. The debut was Psykick on Destinesia Records, followed by Sirendipity on Mondo Records that featured great remixes by Dark Echo and Tim Verkruissen, it was played by Andrew Rayel and Cosmic Gate and brought great new contacts. The track Witnessday was released on ReState Records, the collab Hudson with the talented AxelPolo was released on Mashbuk Records, with wonderful remixes by Theoh and Alex Byrka. Next is Heart & Zeal on the great label Discover Records. A fast remix for Wer sind Wir by the german band Löwenhertz was released on Echozone, a track that proves to be popular with german lovers of electronic music.
