Nostalgic, booty-shakin' disco/house
Jersey native Morgan Geist and colleague Darshan Jesrani are better known as Metro Area and they recently released their seventh 12" on Geist's Environ label. Their latest effort isn't much of a stylistic departure (aside from the vocals) from their past work, and that is a very good thing: The duo are known for their 'new-school disco' sound, which incorporates the sleekest elements of the old days and mixes it with house and electro influences to give the music a freshness and punch that will slay any dancefloor.
Speaking of which, Metro Area will be spinning a hometown show at Brooklyn's own Studio B on January 4, so be sure to ask for a pair of dancin' shoes this Christmas. Check out a live set of theirs below to get a taste. You can purchase Metro Area 7 (and their other releases) at "all fine physical and digital music outlets."
