Roosevelt teams up with Nile Rodgers on Disco Burner ‘Passion’ | News

Roosevelt and Nil Rodgers combine on new single ‘Passion’.

Roosevelt’s work is inspired by his deep love for club culture and his varied and nearly universal musical tastes.

2021’s album “Polydans” was an ode to those influences, and his love of disco is on full display on this new single.

Out now, ‘Passion’ combines its seething electronics with the cut guitar lines of Nile Rodgers, the inimitable genius behind Chic.

A truly collaborative work, “Passion” is a lively, summer-infused sound that continues Nile’s rebirth while expanding Roosevelt’s sound.

The producer comments…

“Nile has been one of my biggest influences over the years so working on a track with him was an absolute dream come true. ‘finally having a version that works for me. Nile and I worked on the track remotely via phone calls and emails, before finally meeting him in Los Angeles to celebrate its completion. The man is a living legend for me, and just talking to him about the early days of disco was such an inspiration.” “Passion” is an ode to Studio 54, a tribute to the energy and ecstasy of late 70s disco. »
