About Doof

b. Nick Barber, 1968. With a background in punk, reggae, rock and Indian music, Taylors first release, the EP Disposable Hymn To The Infinite, was on Novamute Records in 1991. He has since recorded for a number of the top trance labels, including the Born Again EP (Matsuri Productions 1995) and Double Dragons (Dragonfly Records). In 1995 he released Lets Turn On (a collaboration with Simon Posford aka Hallucinogen) on TIP Records, followed in 1996 by Angelina and Destination Bom (also on TIP), which all became favourites on the trance scene. Towards the end of that year, TIP released Doofs eagerly awaited debut album, Lets Turn On, one of the most coherent and enduring releases in the Goa trance style. On tracks such as Mars Needs Women and Destination Bom, Barber distilled the rip-roaring, four-on-the-floor/Indian mode style in careful, restrained arrangements, while presenting a more tranquil, chilled-out trance sound on Sunshrine and Star Over Parvati. At the same time, the album is characterized as a whole by his focused collection of sounds. In 1997, he contributed The Tower And The Star to the TIP compilation Infinite Excursions II; the following year Wormwhole was released on TIPs Beyond Colour. He has also written tracks for the dub compilations Dub Mashing Up Creation and Dubbed On Planet Skunk for Dubmission Records. Barber frequently travels and performs around Europe and further afield. He has remixed for a number of artists including the Green Nuns Of The Revolution, Hallucinogen and the Infinity Project.
