Biography Doop

House act from The Hague that has international chart success.


Ridderhoff and Garnefski graduate from the Royal Music School in The Hague. Both have specialized in recording technique.

Ferry & Garnefski


The duo starts making house music.


The two release several records under the names Booby Trax, Doop, Wax Attack and Hocus Pocus.

Hocus Pocus


Doop In January the single Doop is released. The track, which is a modernized version of the charleston, shoots to the top of the UK charts where it remains for three weeks. In the Netherlands it reaches number eleven. In April a remix of the track comes out and also enters the charts. By the end of the year Huckleberry Jam is released and reaches number 19 in the charts. The accompanying video is boycotted in the UK because of an SM-scene with two old age pensioners.


The third single, Wan Two, contains '80s ska influences. Again, Ridderhof and Garnefsky combine traditional instruments with modern technology. Doop is awarded the Export Prize and a Zilveren ('Silver') Harp music award.


Ridin' is released. The track reaches number 19 and stays in the charts for six weeks.


The CD and single God Devil Hell Heaven are released under the name Hocus Pocus. Ridderhoff and Garnefsky also take part in projects such as Sponk and Peplab and do remixes, among others, Clubfoot.
