Born in Aachen he began DJing and organizing events at local Clubs at the age of 16.
As part of a wide range of music-projects like Film- & documentary music (Theater Aachen, Zinnober Film), different bands (from alternative, as guitarist & singer, to electronica) & theatre productions his technical skills & music interest were intensified.
In spring 2013, Raphael moved to Berlin to work for De:Bug Magazine Berlin and focus on further work with music. Following he worked as social-media expert & nightmanager for Grise Agency Berlin.
Raphael Hofman’s tracks and livesets are known for their special deep & dark sound, surrounded by different rhythmic structures & soundspaces, that could be classified as melodic techno. As he writes, plays, produces, sings & records everything himself on every single track, the productions contain a certain handmade roughness.
Raphael Hofman’s first Release “No Word No Sound/Silhouettes“ was published on Save Room Recordings (Label by Kruse & Nuernberg) and went up Top100 & Releasecharts. Currently he is working on new Remixes & several new EP’s.
