      Le groupe le plus ignoble de toute l'histoire de l'électro. Rien à garder. Tout à jeter. Rien, que dalle, sinon de la hype. Ces types sont les initiateurs de toute la merde que l'on a vue déferler au début des années 2000 dans le domaine des musiques électroniques.

        Solid album, "Dance Reaction" and "Caught Up" are the favs here

          Does anyone know why the tracklist above does not match the tracklistings for either the US or UK vinyl releases? That and why tracks such as Pina and Strut are completely absent from both releases?

            Blippy electro-disco from Morgan Geist (one of the forefathers of the movement) and his partner-in-crime Darshan Jesrani under their moniker Metro Area. The tracks display nice blend of different elements, from deep house to Chicago-style disco house (with a extended stay in Detroit). The clear and unabashed love of funk (listen to the tootling voices on “Miura” or the old-skool rhythms on “Soft Hoop”) also add a sense of fun. There’s also a polished smoothness (like on “Machine Vibe” and “Orange Alert”). The simplicity of the songs both adds to their charm and makes them difficult to differentiate from one another, but still, for your late night pleasures, you’ll want to make a visit to this metro area.
