Free Download of new Roosevelt’s ‘Midnight Versions’ EP

Roosevelt remixes himself and gives away new ‘Midnight Versions’ EP

Marius Lauber AKA Roosevelt released his highly anticipated self-titled debut album via Greco-Roman / City Slang records last year, showcasing Lauber as a fully developed recording artist with an instinctive synthesis of different soundscapes. From a pinch of French electro pop, a smattering of LA yacht rock, the hypnotic repetition of German pioneers like Ash Ra Tempel/Manuel Göttsching, and Neu!, to classic floor-friendly 80s pop from Chic, Talk Talk, and New Order, even Todd Terje and Metro Area are all weaved into his own unique sonic tapestry.

Somehow between busy touring he has found the time to remix Blossoms, Sinkane and Glass Animals. And now he turns his deft production touch on himself, twisting ‘Close’, ‘Night Moves’, ‘Colours’ & ‘Wait Up’ into deadly effective machine music, awash with stripped back rhythm sections and dubbed out vocals. Marius explains the creative process behind these alternate takes on his own tracks:

With ‘Midnight Versions’ I wanted to show the dancefloor influence on the album, and turn the tracks into longer edits, with more time to breathe and evolve.

Tracklisting:

1. Close (Midnight Version)

3. Colours (Midnight Version)
4. Wait Up (Midnight Version)
