Hoopy Frood

Hoopy Frood

Whistlers Green

Originally inspired by a wide range of music (Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Free, Ozric Tentacles, Bob Marley, Fleetwood Mac) but previously uninspired by the electronic music they had heard, Hoopy Frood discovered work by Ott, Entheogenic and Shpongle on one hot, balmy and trippy summers day in 2003 and everything changed.

Instantly converted, they bought a cheap PC, a few synths, knobs and levers and started learning how to make those ethereal, trippy sounds, blending them with their own live band stylings. The result is a stir-fry of influences from all of the above, many other rock, psychedelic and EDM projects and especially from their fellow band members. "Proper festy music!"
