商品説明

The right amount of exposure and the right number of open minds would turn this record into the dance-music equivalent of Pulp Fiction. That film and this record are mindbending syntheses of undervalued styles and scenes of the past -- both slyly referential and humbly reverential -- with mad-scientist approaches that are dead set on being both current and translatable to the future. The men behind Metro Area, Morgan Geist and Darshan Jesrani, take six tracks from four 12 releases that left immediate impressions on the dance underground, edit them as needed, and weave them into four new productions for a painstakingly sequenced album that flows constantly and smoothly with colorful, melodic, and deep feeling and simplistic yet full-sounding grooves. In each track, a tip of the hat is given to the bygone days of boogie, old-school R&B, house, and pre-whitewashed disco. However, each track is so full of life and creative combinations and refractions of the past that any accusations of being hopelessly retro are laughable at best. The Brooklyn duo combines the synthetic (drum programming, synthesizers) with the organic (a string quartet and a battery of other guest musicians) for a record that sounds effortless on the surface but meticulously perfected beneath it. The bold, charging bounce of Atmosphrique, the robofunk crunch of Miura, the Boggle-bubble drum-pad bump of Caught Up, and the jubilant street-side skip of Pina are so rich with immediate pleasures that it would be understandable to take the craft and precision with which they were made for granted. This record is a deceptively intricate maze of tight machine rhythms, tumbling bongos, smacking handclaps, warm keyboard stabs, zapping synths, tickling pianos, lively loops of flute, guitar flicks, and seesawing strings. It's just shy of being an embarrassment of riches. ~ Andy Kellman, Rovi

Metro Area

Morgan Geist and Darshan Jesrani forged an alliance in the late '90s that has resulted in some of the most colorful, deep-feeling, melodic, and simplistic-yet-full-sounding dance music of the time that will no doubt translate decades ahead. Avoiding any strict sense of stylistic pigeonhole, Metro Area's releases pay tribute to the bygone glory days of '70s and '80s boogie, old-school R&B, disco, a
