SXSW 2014 Artist: Roosevelt

Marius Lauber is spearhead of the dance-pop project Roosevelt. Lauber, German singer/songwriter/producer, combines psychedelic beats with light-hearted lyrics resulting in a newfound transient-disco sequence.

This 23-year-old Cologne, Germany native started his music career as the drummer for the rock band Beat! Beat! Beat!, but soon developed a solo project featuring his diverse musical talent. Lauber signed to Greco-Roman, a London label, which has helped other electronic artists like Disclosure and Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs break into the competitive music scene.

In October of 2013, Roosevelt released a 4 track EP Elliot. It features captivating hooks and blissful waves of synth-pop that emote dance floor friendly vibes. Before he comes to SXSW 2014, preview tracks off of Roosevelt’s EP Elliot during SXSWfm’s specialty show, Floored, which airs every tuesday at 12 & 6 CST.
