The Horrorist – One Night In N.Y.C.

The Horrorist – One Night In N.Y.C.

Few songs are truly story telling, rarely immersing yourself in a song to find out the ending rather than to simply listen to the track. Well this can’t be said for this cut.

Fascinatingly brilliant yet, weirdly repulsive an emotive story which keeps you locked in. Unpleasant yet so so catchy. This song hit Number 1 on the German Dance Charts (DDC) in 2001. 

“I’ll never forget the shock after listening to that whole story build up so intensely.” 

“One Night In N.Y.C.- The Horrorist ” 

The Horrorist, Oliver Chesler is one of the best known and loved electronic musicians. Recording since 1989 he and has released over 80 singles and full-length albums. Although dance orientated, most of his songs have vocals and usually progress to a crescendo. His vocal technique is quite original and unique. He also refuses not to stick to one genre so on any given record expect styles from indie new wave, electro, EBM, techno, to synthpunk.

Ricardo Villalobos does an exceptional remix, incorporating hard industrial techno influences into an already sinister track.
