Christian Hoffmann’s initial venture into the world of music started out with a guitar whilst at school, and after various attempts attract bands with his passion, he went on a solo mission to produce electronic music after buying Enter Shikari’s first album “Take to the Skies”. Several years of work and perseverance later, Christian 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 “The Move It EP” received high praise throughout the scene which featured “Spirit Song 2012”, played by everyone from Paul Oakenfold to Sub Focus. “Spirit Song 2012” was also used as the main piece in the Arcadia Spectacular show at festivals all over the world.

After several EP’s, remixes and singles on Sub Slayers, Christian went onto release his debut album, “Section Nine” that featured the tracks “A Place in Time, LV-426, Die for You and Field Of Poppies”. It was a concept record that tells the story of a civilisation that falls apart due to their dependence on technology and social networks. This opened many doors for him that led to releases on the prestigious Viper Recordings and Technique Recordings, as well as a wealth of DJ’s who continue to supporting his work in clubs and radio globaly, especially his recent string of “post-Section Nine” singles “Original, Voyager II, No Gyal Tune & The Antidote”.

Toronto Is Broken is now working on his follow-up album to “Section Nine”, a story of an individual’s personal struggle, trying to find their place in a world that was collapsed in on itself after the events of “Section Nine”. His second album is due for release in 2017.
