Roosevelt – “Passion” (Feat. Nile Rodgers)

Roosevelt just followed up last year’s Polydans album with quite the high-profile collaboration. On new single “Passion,” the German producer teams up with none other than Chic’s Nile Rodgers for what’s billed as a tribute to Studio 54. Sleek and funky and melodious, it definitely hearkens back to the disco era but with a more modern glint. Those who enjoyed Rodgers’ famous Daft Punk collaboration will probably dig this too — and honestly those folks should find their way to Polydans if they’re seeking more sparkling disco revivalism.
