He may only be 18, but Toronto Is Broken (Christian Hoffmann) is already making his mark bass music scene. Hailing from Barwell, Leicestershire, a village known as the manufacturing home of Noble cars and Hornby train sets, Toronto Is Broken already runs his own non-profit record label, Dual Signal Records, has played abroad and received BBC 1xtra support for his track "Into My Eyes".
It’s clear Christian is keen not to be pigeon holed into one genre as this EP clearly shows. Spanning across Future Jungle, Drum & Bass and Dubstep Toronto Is Broken shows us he’s clearly in the run for one to watch in 2012.
Heading up the EP is the fiercely energetic ‘Taking Over’ with its complex beats, uplifting pianos and deadly dubstepesque bass lines – peak time all the way!
Stepping up next is a no holds barred DnB track ‘Cold Contact’; a cross between DJ Fresh & Sub Focus with sweet leads and devastating bass drops.
‘Move It’ can only be described as the most disgusting Dubstep riddim you ever heard, seriously this has to be played to be believed!
Getting a 2012 maker over is TiB’s ‘Spirit Song 2012’ with its haunting vocals that can be likened to The Prodigy’s ‘Smack My Bitch Up’, beautifully dangerous.
