Listen to New Released Album "Analog Vice"
Niles Harris, better known as Nillatron, is a producer from Baltimore, Maryland whose music not only revolves around Lofi instruments, but strives to captivate the audience’s attention with every track played. It is more than just music, it is a way of life for Niles. Growing up in Baltimore has its shares of struggles, but also its triumphs. In a city where music can determine whether or not a person can make it out of the struggle, Niles knows what is right for him and how he can shift that over so other people can enjoy his music as well.
Being a Resident Assistant at Albright College is already a handful, on top of being an ambassador to the school and completing schoolwork. Niles struggled to find a medium that could allow him to maintain his busy schedule, but also find time to do something that he loves. Having to balance school and a social life did not free up much space for him to tap into his creative side, but instead prepared him for that next step in his life. During his downtime, Niles would listen to a wide variety of artists and genres, such as Hip-Hop, R&B, and Low Fidelity Hip-Hop music (Lofi). Music was a way for Niles to escape the pressures of constantly having to focus on other people and responsibilities, and just take time out of the day to focus on what he wanted to do and what would be his peace.
After discovering Lofi Hip-Hop, Niles began to create his own music, first beginning with Hip-Hop beats, then progressively learning how to create Lofi music. Once Niles found his passion for Lofi, he self-produced his first debut EP “I Want Peace”. After releasing his EP on Apple Music and Spotify, Niles saw a significant increase in listeners and found his love and passion for producing music. Niles began to produce beats daily, and began widening his craft and started producing for other artists. His catalogue increased during his career uprise and so did his audience. More people were attracted to the ambient, Lofi aesthetic, so Niles began experimenting with different sound packs and started working on his second project, “Analog Vice”.
What started off as a way to detox from a stressful day, soon turned into a craft that Niles worked to perfect everyday. More and more beats were being produced as more and more people tuned in to listen to his Lofi music. One such review on his latest album read, “Niles’ music has helped me stay focused when everything around me is chaos. It has helped me find balance and peace.” Niles has continued to hone his craft and shape it into something more than just music. Niles wants to create music that can be enjoyed by all people and will continue to grow his audience, whether they need a moment to sit and relax or if they want to listen to new and improved sounds.
