Info for Polydans (Midnight Versions)



“Always a student of dance music, it's clear that for whatever his next project is shaping up to be, Lauber has dug deep into the inner workings of dance music and studied the history vigorously.“ (PopMatters)

An album engineered with the precision and expertise of a production master yet born from the creative passion of the genre’s biggest fan. Playing almost every instrument on the record, Roosevelt created ‘Polydans’ by swirling together the spirits of 80s synth, disco, analogue, Yacht rock and delirious dancefloor euphoria with amazing results. It is, quite simply, a feast for fans of the electronic genre, and a feat of expertly crafted pop that feels current yet nostalgic, club-ready yet heartachingly warm.

“It felt incredibly liberating to realize that I’m in a position now to go to the studio everyday and just do the music that feels right,” he says. “In this respect, ‘Polydans’ is my most personal album yet, as there hasn’t been any creative limitations – I just did what made me happy."

While cutting his teeth for years touring around the world, collaborating with acts like Washed Out, and remixing artists like Rhye, Glass Animals, Chvrches and Charlotte Gainsbourg, Roosevelt became one of the most buzzed-about new voices in electronic music. When it came time to work on his third album, Lauber took the expertise he learned on the road and brought it back to his roots: a combination of playing multiple instruments in numerous bands during his adolescence followed by his time spent DJing at intimate clubs around London, Berlin, Lisbon and more. He craved the chance to recapture the energy and essence of those moments of sonic connection, where passion and excitement are woven into the intimate nuances of the genre, and the physical relationship between the DJ and those on the dancefloor.

"Balances ›80s-inspired synth, disco, driving beats and cinematic textures into a musical amalgamation that simultaneously manages effervescence and heft.​" (Billboard on ›Sign‹)

"Strobe-lit and expansive cut that locks into an insistent groove and periodically explodes into bright colors." (Stereogum on ›Echoes‹)
