Morgan Geist

is one half of genre defining New Jersey Neo-Disco duo Metro Area. On his own Environ label he started the reincarnation of disco at the end of the last century, fusing the sounds of bygone disco and boogie with the space and atmospheres of techno and house. His remixes have launched whole careers and his «Unclassics» compilation series was the blueprint of what one calls now Cosmic Disco.
