Electronic artist Roosevelt has shared his single, the anthemic ‘Ordinary Love’, which is also his debut release on Ninja Tune’s Counter Records imprint.

Roosevelt, is the artist moniker for Marius Lauber. The German producer, instrumentalist, vocalist and DJ’s kaleidoscopic new track weaves together funky bass, shoegaze-leaning guitars, vibrant synths and a stadium-sized chorus, with the psychedelic fusion combining to transcendent effect.

“I wanted to create some kind of urgency that resembles the euphoria of a new love, with all its bliss but also the uncertainty that comes with it,” he says of the track. 

Having left his studio in Cologne in search of new inspiration, the track was written in an isolated cabin in the Elysian Heights of Los Angeles.

Layering many synths together, Roosevelt originally called the single ‘Wall Of Sound’ when he was working on the initial demo. Sonically, the idea of the sound of the sirens, which are played on a vintage Prophet 5, came as he wanted to “create an underlying feeling of instability.

“It worked out as a great contrast to the melodic chords,” Roosevelt adds, “as there's always a slight disharmony going on throughout the track”.
