So this is what smooth dance-pop sounds like nowadays. Synths, tight live drums, loops, but infused with just enough real instruments and vocals to make it worthwhile performing live. Roosevelt caught my ear from the first bar. The lead singer and producer, Marius Lauber, 31, started out as a DJ in Cologne, Germany and after writing the hit song “Elliot” in 2013 and a series of super catchy songs, formed Roosevelt and has not looked back. This video is taken from a live performance on KEXP, a radio station in Seattle. The German producer’s smooth dance-pop thrives under bright festival lights and with halcyon days just around the corner it may be the perfect soundtrack to a memorable summer.
