Words by Tom Frodsham.
There’s a fresh batch of indie disco singer-songwriters releasing a new wave of disco music. People like Rinse, Jara and Rush Midnight to name a few.
One artist in this fresh batch is German producer Roosevelt. And we’re lucky enough to have him visit us in Manchester on his tour, calling at Night & Day Cafe on 27 November. I’d define Roosevelt’s music as ‘psychedelic disco’. There are many layers to his sound, and his music offers a deeper, more emotive take on synth pop. Tracks that’ll get your attention, such as ‘Montreal’ and especially ‘Fever’, have thick, sophisticated disco beats that make you want to explore more of his material.
He’s toured with Hot Chip and Crystal Fighters in the past, and his gig at the Northern Quarter’s Night & Day is the last date on an extensive world tour, which has been ongoing since the release of his self-titled debut album.
Roosevelt plays at Night & Day Cafe on Sunday 27 November, 2016, supported by Manchester’s Girl Friend. For tickets and information, follow this link.
