After over a year of late-night sessions in New Jersey and Manhattan, Metro Area burst onto the scene in 1999 with their self-titled debut 12" featuring the cult smash “Atmosphrique.” The brainchild of veteran producers Morgan Geist and Darshan Jesrani, Metro Area was born out of the duo’s dichotomous love of both the old moods of R&B, disco and boogie and the more cutting-edge sound of innovative house and techno.

Metro Area brings back the soulful experimentation of early club classics, mixing live and electronic instruments. Simultaneously, the mood and minimalism of more recent dance music forms creep into the mix: Detroit’s icey futurism, Chicago’s abstract track-modes and the warmth of New York and New Jersey’s deep house.

Having collected their cult classics on a 2002 debut album, Metro Area promise to continue rocking theories of time and space in a new 12" series starting in 2004.
