Oliver Chesler is one of the best known and loved electronic musicians.
Recording since 1989 he has released over 80 12" singles and 3 full length albums. In 2001 he had a Number 1 hit on the German Dance Charts (DDC) with the song "One Night in NYC" and in 2004 his album "Manic Panic" went to Number 1 on the German Alternative Chart (DAC). The scope of his music catalogue is huge and he has recorded for every major label (Universal, Sony, Warner, Koch) and all the best known techno labels (Tresor, Industrial Strength, Neue Heimat). His subsequent albums “Attack Decay” (2007) and “Joyless Pleasure” (2011) have been met with rave reviews! His newest album “Fire Funmania” was released in January 2013.
In 1997 Oliver Chesler started the hugely respected Things to Come Records. Originally a business decision to take control of his own royalties the label has also given The Horrorist and other TTC label artists freedom to produce the music they like. Oliver Chesler is one of the few artists and label-owners making something new, groundbreaking, and original that gets wider acclaim.
The Horrorist is a sensational live act. A mixture of industrial attitude and punk style with synth-techno music. Playing a set that goes from minimal or new wave all the way to hardcore and everything in between, there is something for everyone. But the biggest thing about the Horrorist's sets is the interactivity that comes with having a live performer that a crowd is capable of understanding. The show is comprised of Chesler's in your face vocals, video projection and live drum machine and synth.
The Horrorist is one of those unique artists that only come around once in a while. He is a big influence on the electronic music scene and will be for years to come.
