Renowned Berlin-based producer and live act Nils Hoffmann unveils his forthcoming album ‘Running In A Dream,’ following the release of the captivating lead single ‘Closer.’
Moulded 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 catalogue 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.
Since the release of ‘A Radiant Sign,’ Nils has continued to showcase his talent with the release of his two-track EP ‘Phenomena,’ which has already garnered over two million streams. Additionally, he has delivered outstanding remixes for artists such as Emmit Fenn, Yotto, and Booka Shade, as well as rounding off an impressive summer run performing at festivals including Tomorrowland and Echelon Festival.
‘Running In A Dream’ boasts an illustrious array of collaborations, 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.
In tandem with the album release, Nils 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.

“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
