Up and coming dance maestro Roosevelt (real name Marius Lauber) has been making waves of late. Having just released his self-titled debut album on City Slang and Greco-Roman (the acclaimed label of Hot Chip’s Joe Goddard), the Cologne-based producer is further championing the throwback sound that has taken alternative electronic music by storm over the past few years. The album’s groovy, driving synth riffs are immediately accessible but give way to impressive depth, supported by Lauber’s simple but incisive vocals. While the influence of disco, early electro and Balearic house music are heavy throughout things never drift into pastiche, holding onto a winning vitality.
Roosevelt is hitting Great Scott on Monday with opener Shallou, and we have a pair of tickets that need a home! Enter below for a chance to come dance.
