Renegade Riddims: Toronto Is Broken


After many years of work and perseverance, Christian Hoffmann aka Toronto Is Broken went on to be picked up by the UK bass label Sub Slayers, ran by former Kiss FM and Ram Records resident Jay Cunning. His first release received high praise throughout the scene.

It wasn’t long until Futurebound snapped him up to release Toronto Is Broken’s second album ‘You Are (Not) Alone’ on Viper Recordings. It tells the story of an individual’s personal struggle with depression and isolation, trying to find their place in a world that was collapsed in on itself after the events of Section Nine. It also featured some of Christian’s most successful tracks to date such as ‘Trying to Find Home’, ‘Aum’ and ‘Remnants’.

Having recently received widespread acclaim for his remix of Deuce & Charger‘s ‘We Are Made Of Light’ it’s fair to say that Toronto Is Broken is a talent to keep your eyes and ears on!

Christian also runs his own label YANA Music, which specializes in dancefloor drum & bass. It’s a new home for his music, and has been finding success with releases such as ‘In Your Soul’ / ‘Care For You’ and ‘Run Underwater’.

In the past year, we’ve heard a lot of rumblings from this guy, from collabs to solo music which we’ve premiered, it’s safe to say that Toronto Is Broken is gonna be on the scene for years to come and we’re really happy to be a part of his journey. Below you will find his contribution to our Renegade Riddims series. With 60 minutes of high energy, dancefloor tracks all gelled together with some quick mixing skills this is just what you need to get yourself ready for your office Christmas party or before going out with your mates or coming back for the afters!
