Ed Hoffman debuts on our label with ‘Good Time’
Firing off the back of the debut Data Transmission release from Archie B comes West Coast producer Ed Hoffman with a two-track EP titled ‘Good Time’ on 29th June.
Ed Hoffman has been playing music since he was 10 but found his passion with dance music while in college. Ed travelled the globe for many years after going to countless festivals & clubs leading him to the broad style of house & techno he creates today. He is always smiling and embracing all things weird. Ed brings this energy into every mix, set, and song that he writes. When he’s not writing music, you can find him biking or making sure his disco birds get fed.
On the two tracks EP comes ‘Good Time’ where he teams up with KOOP and the low-slung club melter ‘Sunday Morning Acid’, he chats about both tracks.
Good Time – Towards the end of 2020, I had decided to move from California to Pennsylvania, to get a change of scenery and move in with Koop. We were stuck inside most of the time during the first winter of the pandemic with not much else to do besides create music. We were inspired to put together a fun summertime track, for a time when we could start celebrating with all of our friends and family again.
Sunday Morning Acid – The original idea of the track came together in early 2021, on a cold winter morning. I was up early, dreaming of warmer weather and playing with my Roland tb-3, when the track’s base started to come together. The inspiration for the track came from some of the incredible ’90s acid & breakbeat house tracks, and it’s felt throughout the song.
Ed Hoffman & KOOP ‘Good Time/Sunday Morning Acid’ comes out on Data Transmission on 29th June – you can download / stream it here.
