Good morning. It’s Friday so we’re listening to something more upbeat. Today we’re listening to Metro Area, a house music duo from New York. In the early aughts, the duo released a string of EPs that received heavy rotation in NY clubs. Then in 2002 they put out their self-titled debut LP. That LP combined the propellent four-on-the-floor beat of new disco with jazzy 7-chords and funky synth bass. There’s also some great live instrumentation that’s sampled and looped deftly across the tracks.
