Nils Hoffmann shares the next single, ‘Holding Me Back,’ from his forthcoming album ‘Running In A Dream.’ The single features vocals by Australian singer-songwriter The Kite String Tangle.
Molded by German electronic music culture and his own classical training, music has always been a part of Nils’ life. Embarking on his musical journey at the age of 16, Nils swiftly gained a wealth of experience to draw upon. To date, the 27-year-old producer has amassed over 120 million streams on his music catalog and performed at renowned venues, including Printworks London, the Brooklyn Mirage, and The Gorge Amphitheatre.
Nils’ forthcoming album, Running In A Dream, follows the release of his sophomore album, A Radiant Sign, which launched on Anjunadeep last year. The album achieved remarkable feats, amassing an impressive 24 million streams to date and gaining radio support from leading platforms, including BBC Radio 1, SiriusXM Chill, and KCRW.
It soared to the top spot on iTunes Dance charts upon release and quickly garnered support from artists including Maceo Plex, Joris Voorn, and Eelke Kleijn. Nils embarked on an extensive live tour to support the album, enthralling audiences across three continents at over 40 mesmerizing shows.
In his latest single, ‘Holding Me Back’, Nils combines The Kite String Tangle‘s warm vocals with interwoven synth melodies characteristic of Nils’ distinctive sound. Hailing from Brisbane, Australia, The Kite String Tangle is a two-time Aria-nominated producer, multi-instrumentalist and vocalist. Throughout his impressive discography, which includes his recent album ‘Lustre,’ The Kite String Tangle has garnered praise from NME and Acid Stack, as well as making airways on Triple J and KCRW.
‘Running In A Dream’ features an illustrious 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 industry heavyweights such as RÜFÜS DU SOL, Ólafur Arnalds, and Stephan Bodzin, Nils showcases his mastery of melodic house production throughout the album. From heartwarming synth leads to contemplative vocals, the high-calibre compositions of ‘Running In A Dream’ is a testament to the talents of the accomplished producer.

“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.” – Nils Hoffmann
