Roosevelt [DJ Set]
Marius Lauber aka Roosevelt is a dedicated music lover drawn to all forms of dance music. From yacht rock to Balearic textures, house euphoria to sub-zero techno, it’s the warm emotional touch that drives his music and makes people fall in love with his breakthrough ‘Elliot’ EP, outstanding debut album 'Roosevelt’, bold and addictive follow-up ‘Young Romance’ and his love letter to electronic music ‘Polydans’. Now, in 2022, Roosevelt has collaborated with legendary producer and guitarist Nile Rodgers to create an ageless and glistening modern disco classic.
While cutting his teeth for years touring around the world, collaborating with acts like Washed Out, and remixing artists like Taylor Swift, Rhye, Glass Animals, Chvrches, Charlotte Gainsbourg and José Gonzáles, Roosevelt became one of the most buzzed-about new voices in electronic music. When it came time to work on his third album, Lauber took the expertise he learned on the road and brought it back to his roots. Playing almost every instrument on the latest album himself, he produced ‘Polydans’ by swirling together the spirits of 80s synth, disco, French touch and delirious dancefloor euphoria with amazing results.
