Metro Area 5 & 6

Metro Area

ENVDMA56 | 2012-05-15  
Metro Area's Metro Area 5 (2004) and Metro Area 6 (2005) saw the New York duo searching to reclaim their identity after releasing their debut (and only) album in 2002 amid a flurry of sound-alike records. Heretofore released only on vinyl, Environ is proud to present both of these Metro Area EPs remastered and combined into a new digital mini-album: Metro Area 5 & 6.
Metro Area 5 commences with "Nerves," a suspenseful, driving groove soaked in frantic Latin percussion and fierce drums, featuring angular synthetic textures that ultimately melt into a melancholic finale awash in acoustic piano, strings and horns. However, it is the B-side's "Proton Candy" that ultimately became a DJ favorite with its tight electric bassline and playful atmosphere, conjuring images of roller rink nights and bubblegum R&B radio days. Metro Area 6 kicks off with "Honey Circuit," a track chock-full of sonic detail, suspenseful arrangements and a wordless female vocal in the foreground. "Rhythm Reel #6" is a classic DJ mix tool that hearkens back to the atmospheric rhythm track records that remain dear to the duo's hearts to this day. "Things Fall" rounds out the EP in the form of a chugging cosmic jam with enough musical twists (including a horn section led by UK hotshot Graeme Blevins) to arouse even the most jaded headphone junkie.
Written, produced and arranged by Morgan Geist and Darshan Jesrani.
