This is one release not to be missed. Morgan Geist definitely lays down the funk here. Holy SHIT! No matter if you're black, white, a veteran to disco, or a braindead freak of a vegetable, the 3 tracks in this EP are going to make you want to move. Previous releases may have had various focuses on the music such as the melody, but in here, what matters is the bass. Where some of the other Morgan Geist tracks have a lush atmosphere, this one pairs these retro little tinny treble leads along with the best that the low frequencies have to offer. What you get is an annoying tinny buzz when played at low volumes, and the most amazing, gluteus maximus shaking beats. With this turned up, you can feel the bass pounding down in your abdomen, and it just feels fucking great!

"Epoch" has a great low end, with a tinny, detuned lead that would sound like crap if anyone other than Morgan Geist used it. But he just seems to make everything work. Great intro.

"Probs" sounds a little bit more lush, even though there is a thin sounding lead. What makes it awesome is the combination of the smooth, fat bass, and the mellow keyboards. So hard to describe. Think of the funkiest music you've ever heard, and add on an 80s flavor to it, and maybe add some more funk...no even more...

"Jersey Chica" at first seemed a bit boring to me, because it's a little different from the first two tracks, after getting used to the fairly high BPM. This track is slower, but once you get into it, the funkiness will exhibit itself. Maybe not as ass-shaking as the other two, because it's a bit more mellow, but that doesn't mean it's bad.

Thank God I found Metro Area. Thank God I looked into Morgan Geist and found this. Buy this. Get it. Play it. Loud. And be glad for what disco has done for humanity.
