Roosevelt – Colours (Prins Thomas Diskomiks)
Prins Thomas does some wonderful remixes, often better than his own original stuff. Not sure why that should be. Here he is proving that rule again with a brilliant discotronik remix of Roosevelt’s Colours. There’s all manner of funky things going on here. A little light house piano adding a choppy background to the strings and beats. Fantastic sound of summer.

On August 19th Marius Lauber AKA Roosevelt releases his stunning, self-titled debut album via Greco-Roman / City Slang records. Now, the official remix of single ‘Colours’ by Norwegian maestro Prins Thomas takes Roosevelt’s already uplifting original and works it into a deep, piano laden hypno-euphoric dancefloor masterpiece, which is primed for maximum festival and dancefloor madness this Summer. As well as this original remix, Prins Thomas will be providing an instrumental version and Roosevelt will be releasing his own dub take on the single.
“The Oslo disco scene has always been a big influence on my own productions, so it’s a big honour for me to have Prins Thomas remix one of my tracks.” Lauber tells us, “I would often play his remixes in my own DJ sets, because his way of creating club-friendly tracks – that still include a Krautrock and effortless 70’s vibe – is really unique. I saw Prins Thomas play one of his 5 hour sets and was blown away by his ability to build a sonic landscape with so much patience, educating the crowd with his selection and creating tension over a few hours, rather than feeling the urge to please them every 2 minutes”
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.
