Metro Area Metro Area (15th Anniversary) 15th Anniversary edition of the debut and only album from Metro Area, originally released in 2002 and has now been remastered and pressed across 3 discs. Legendary album right here, many have tried to imitate over the years, but few have come close! In the late nineties, the budding producers Morgan Geist and Darshan Jesrani bonded over their shared love of slower tempos and '70s and '80s NYC club culture. Obsessed with record digging and the sounds they heard on late-night "club classics" radio shows - and turned off by current releases they saw as artlessly "updating" sublime disco by sampling, filtering and subjugating them with huge kick drums - the duo set out to discover how their favorite old 12" records were made. They naturally gravitated towards extended dubs of songs - full of strange mistakes and echoing backing tracks - instead of the better-known vocal versions. Lacking the big budgets and gear that made so many of their favorite classic records come together, they were forced to take a guerrilla approach. They reprogrammed their techno-oriented arsenal of secondhand synths and samplers, using novel digital recording technology to capture live instrumentation and prioritizing mood over hooks, and the resulting music was just wrong enough to sound unlike anything else being released at the time. After just four underground 12" releases, the duo - now well-known as Metro Area - released their first and only album, Metro Area, in the fall of 2002. Fifteen years later, it's time to celebrate the culmination of their shared history and inspiration once again. Environ LP
Morgan Geist Megaprojects Two Environ boss Morgan Geist returns to his love for Detroit techno, Chicago tracks and generally exceptional dancefloor music with the second installment in his series of instrumental EPs: Megaprojects Two. In his own words: "Megaprojects are by definition large-scale, high-tech and cost billions of dollars, whereas this is a collection of low-tech tracks made with cheap little drum machines and rejected old synths. I composed and mixed to the best of my ability and with hope they'll feel more 'mega' than they actually are. Of course, I've been inspired and fascinated by actual megaprojects since I was a child: imposing, surreal engineering and architecture like giant hydroelectric dams, soaring bridges and exposed-concrete government buildings.

Storm Queen Let's Make Mistakes Morgan Geist and Damon Scott's Storm Queen continues its disco assault with typical understated decadence. Just like their previous works, Scott's voice cuts through the mix with deep, crisp authority and genuine soul while Geist's deft analogue synth mastery paints a groove that singes through the last few decades of disco and house.

Storm Queen It Goes On Morgan Geist's project Storm Queen marks a return to his roots with an analogue approach towards making modern house music with a disco pedigree. the fantastic 'It Goes On' features the vocal talents of Damon C. Scott and is the perfect follow up to Storm Queen's debut of 2010, 'Look Right Through'. An underground hit featured in countless radio and club DJ sets and charts, 'Look Right Through' was licensed by Defected Records and will be released in a remix package later this year. Storm Queen makes music for DJs, but doesn't sacrifice atmosphere and proper songwriting, with his tracks owing a debt to classic house music from New York, Chicago and Detroit, as well as disco and boogie. 'It Goes On' appears here in vocal and dub versions. Environ 12" Out of Stock
