Roosevelt & Nile Rodgers Get Animated In Video For “Passion”

Roosevelt’s recent collab with music legend (and one of his personal idols) Nile Rodgers “Passion” (out via CITY SLANG and GRECO-ROMAN) is a modern disco gem which Stereogum called “sleek and funky and melodious, it definitely hearkens back to the disco era but with a more modern glint” and that Billboard said “exudes its namesake emotion, with Rodgers’ classic disco funk guitar work, synth flourishes and full gospel choir on vocals giving this one that big night out feel.” 

And today sees the release of the official video for “Passion” – an animated short from another world, brought to life by Colombian design group Mero, which captures the soaring energy of the source material. Watch HERE.

“Passion” is the latest release from the Berlin-based electronic musical mastermind (birth name: Marius Lauber) following the acclaimed release of his 2021 album ‘Polydans’, which Pitchfork said “evokes an earnest sweetness, forming crisp melodies around his smooth vocals.” 

Roosevelt is getting ready to set dancefloors alive across the US with a forthcoming run of dates kicking off this weekend in Houston and Dallas. Full dates below.
