Tinlicker returns to Anjunadeep with their latest single, “Be Here Now” that sees the duo team up with Nathan Nicholson.


Dutch duo Tinlicker has taken the melodic house and techno scene by storm over the past few years with countless releases and stunning performances along the way. This includes everything from their remarkable album This Is Not Our Universe to their twist on iconic tracks like Robert Miles’ “Children,” while their sets at Anjunadeep showcases and major festivals have further guided fans to a bliss-like state.

This year has already seen Tinlicker deliver a number of fantastic releases for everyone to immerse themselves in such as Lost Gravity and Hypnotised / I Can Feel, and now they’ve gifted us all with another gem: “Be Here And Now.” Featuring the duo’s signature, brooding progressive sound that builds throughout the track’s runtime, the addition of vocals from Nathan Nicholson adds a stirring punch. It blurs the line between dancefloor-ready and pensive with its moody tones and sublime strings guiding the way.

When Tinlicker first sent me the instrumental for this song, long before they gave it rhythm, I fell in love with it – just piano and strings. It was very powerful and a lot of the lyrics and all of the melody came out on my first pass. The lyrics are about a longing for the past and the innocence of growing up. I lost my mom when I was eighteen and within a year moved from Tennessee to England, so my childhood into adulthood has a very strong line running in between. I’m in a constant war with nostalgia – the other life – and where I am right now. In this song I’m simply telling myself to have reverence for my past, but not to be beholden to it. A huge thanks to Tinlicker for asking me to be a part of it.

Additionally, Tinlicker looked to add even more depth to the emotion-fueled track by working with director Julius Ponten on a music video as well. Shot in a cinematic format, the video tells the story of the track as a successful businessman, played by Werner Kolf, reflects on his life as he prepares for his child to be born. It’s the battle that many face when they’re caught between soaking in nostalgia while also living in the present moment.
