Metro Area is Morgan Geist and Darshan Jesrani. After releasing a number of 12" EPs, they issued their first self-titled album (Metro Area) in 2002. The brainchild of veteran producers Morgan Geist and Darshan Jesrani, Metro Area was born out of the pair's somewhat dichotomous love for both the old moods of R&B, disco and boogie and the more cutting-edge sound of innovative house and techno.

Metro Area was compiled from tracks that first appeared on a series of EPs that began to emerge in 1999. The album's reference points were disco, R&B and boogie, but, as Jesrani once said, the arrangements and mixing were "totally shaped by house and techno, so our stuff ended sounding like a mix of those things-kind of minimal, empty disco tracks. The album's influence spread far and wide.
