Roosevelt – Moving On (Joe Goddard Remix)
Marius Lauber AKA Roosevelt released his self-titled debut album via City Slang last fall to much acclaim, with Entertainment Weekly proclaiming Roosevelt is “Breaking Big,” Last Call With Carson Daly interviewing him in a Snap Shot feature, and wide praise from The Guardian, Pitchfork, NPR Music, The Wall Street Journal, Stereogum, Paste, Clash, DJ Mag, The Independent, Dummy, and more. Today, Roosevelt announced the Remixed 2 EP, out May 12th, 2017 on City Slang, sharing the Joe Goddard (Hot Chip) remix of album single “Moving On.” Lauber says, “Feels good to finally have a retouch by the guy who signed me on his record label 4 years ago.” Listen here:
Along with the Greco-Roman label co-founder Joe Goddard,the new EPfeatures remixes by German legend and inspiration Justus Kohncke, fellow Cologne dance stars Andhim, US re-edit king Brennan Green, and personal friends Moscoman and Cleveland. Tracklist below.
Roosevelt – who sold-out multiple dates, including 2 NYC shows, on his first ever headlining U.S. tour last fall – returns stateside for a brief run before playing Governors Ball and crossing the pond again for festival season. A full itinerary is listed below. Roosevelt also recently shared the Hector Prats-directed video for “Moving On”: https://youtu.be/-4FWJmHfLC0
Written, recorded and produced by Lauber over a period of two years, Roosevelt the album is a pillow-soft hallucinatory dreamscape of nocturnal reveries and a lilting sense of melancholia, where sounds build and swell like waves. 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.
