Chronic City feat. Florian Horwath - The Man Who

Chronic City have a strategy, and a history, and a network. The two producers from Vienna like to stay nameless, but even if you have no clue who they are, you can deduct from their list of collaborators and their PR approach that they must have a musical history or a music business related job, or both.

With just one single, they managed to play at this year’s Popfest and appear on the most recent FM4 Soundselection compilation. That might be a sign of outstanding quality or of networking skills, or both, ideally.

Florian Horwath: I Can’t Control It

Seelenluft ft. Florian Horwath, Horse With No Name. The first minute of this video is so painful. I’ve been sitting in front of my screen, blinking every two seconds, as if I could compensate for Mr. Horwath’s non-blinking.
