Tracks of the Week 11/20: Nils Hoffmann – 1.16699016 x 10^-8 hertz & Once in a Blue Moon

Sounds like repetition, but it’ s only partially. I’m gonna start searching for the blue moon again. Will you join me on the quest?


Nils Hoffmann – 1.16699016 x 10^-8 hertz & Once in a Blue Moon

Hahaha, I’m kidding. Granted: …I didn’t know the phrase and I just learned it by researching this article.  Once in a Blue Moon:

Once in a blue moon is something that happens rarely.

You can find more information on this topic here. Nils, should the title have a more profound background, I apologize. Let’s focus on the music.

Once in a Blue Moon was already the track of the week last year when it was released as a single. So why feature the same track again? The reason is 1.16699016 x 10^-8 hertz.

Much is written about the fact that the album format is dead and has been replaced by playlists. I have already expressed myself accordingly, too. But if I look at the recent releases, I have to revise this statement. If you only consider the progressive house & deep house genre, Ben Böhmer, Luttrell, Fritz Kalkbrenner and even Nils Hoffmann have released great albums recently. Probably I have forgotten a notable release as well. Something that used to be there a lot in the past and unfortunately I really miss now is an intro. Luttrell has one on Lucky Ones, Nils on Once in a Blue Moon. So, when you get right down to it: My track of the week isn’t actually Once in a Blue Moon, it’ s 1.16699016 x 10^-8 hertz AND Once in A Blue Moon together. I haven’t heard such a perfect interplay between intro and the real first track for a long time. A terrific tension, the main theme is clearly recognizable, what more could you want? I am very happy that Nils also chose the intro for the takeover. Thanks a lot Nils. And now, enjoy the music:




Since it is a purely instrumental playlist, Nils unfortunately couldn’t present everything worth listening to. Therefore I warmly recommend to listen to the other tracks of him as well! Of course his music is available everywhere digitally. So that you don’t have to search too long, you can listen directly to the album here:
