Nils Hoffmann shares the next single, ‘Holding Me Back,’ from his forthcoming album ‘Running In A Dream.’ The track features vocals by Australian singer-songwriter The Kite String Tangle. Moulded by German electronic music culture and his own classical training, apparently music has always been a part of Nils’ life. Embarking on his musical journey at the age of 16, he gained a wealth of experience to draw upon. To date, the 27-year-old producer has amassed over 120 million streams on his music catalogue and performed at venues including Printworks London, the Brooklyn Mirage, and The Gorge Amphitheatre.
In his latest single he combines The Kite String Tangle's warm vocals with interwoven synth melodies characteristic of his sound. Hailing from Brisbane, Australia, The Kite String Tangle is a two-time Aria-nominated producer, multi-instrumentalist and vocalist. Throughout his discography, which includes his recent album ‘Lustre,’ he has garnered praise from NME and Acid Stack, as well as making airways on Triple J and KCRW.
‘Running In A Dream’ features an array of collaborators, including Australian singer-songwriter Vancouver Sleep Clinic, Swedish producer Kasbo, British singer-songwriter Rae Morris, Brisbane-based producer and vocalist The Kite String Tangle, and Australian musician Dustin Tebbutt.
Drawing inspiration from artists such as RÜFÜS DU SOL, Ólafur Arnalds, and Stephan Bodzin, he showcases his melodic house production throughout the album.
In tandem with the album release, he is embarking on a live tour spanning North America and Europe, with performances in cities including London, Berlin, New York, Los Angeles, and Toronto, as well as appearing at select Anjunadeep label showcases, including Anjunadeep Open Air: Bali.
Nils Hoffmann: “I‘m very happy to present this new record to everyone after working on it over the last few months. The album was inspired by my world travels and, of course, my home in Berlin. This is a very personal project to me and is a culmination of so many beautiful experiences I've had over the past year. I‘ve spent most of my downtime on tour to finish it, and I can’t wait for you all to hear it at home and at my shows.”
