The “One More Night” Ryan Riback remix is the latest in a series of remixes for the song, following remixes with Tep No and Grey that were both released last month. This continues End Of The World’s expansion into the U.S. music market, with the group once again branching out into EDM/Dance music.
“One More Night” was originally the Tokyo-based group’s first step towards releasing music in the U.S. Fitting to the theme of the band’s name, the origin of End Of The World began at the lowest point of lead singer-songwriter Fukase’s life. Due to his continuous battle with mental illness, Fukase checked himself into a mental hospital at 17 years old and spent a year of his life in psychiatric care. In order to regain what had been lost in his life, he began fully enveloping himself in his music and found renewed life through penning his honest feelings into song. Years later, Fukase reconnected with a few childhood friends and began writing and playing music as a group. The result of these writing sessions created a unique blend of Top 40 pop-hooks with lyrics themed to subjects like atheism and anarchy. As a nod to Fukase’s history in the inception of his music, the band collectively chose the name SEKAI NO OWARI, which translates to End Of The World. Despite the ominous name, it was a new beginning for the band.
Ryan Riback meanwhile is a South African born DJ who is currently based in Melbourne, Australia. His 2012 collaborations with Lowkiss, “Work, Money, Party, Bitches” became somewhat of a breakout, reaching number five on Australia’s ARIA chart while his 2016 remix of Starley’s“Call on Me” fared similarly well at home as well as becoming a hit in Europe. Remixes for artists like Andy Grammar and Maroon 5 followed, as did new original material like 2017’s “All That She Wants” single.
