New York Magazine does a mini-profile of tech-house artisan Morgan Geist, who rails against cheesy dance music and proclaims techno to be "black as jazz." Los Angeles DJ and KCRW (89.9 FM) personality Liza Richardson, an early supporter of his Metro Area duo, gets quoted, saying Geist has been "championing" now-trendy retro disco flavor for years and "understands it in ways no one else does." Metro Area is at Le Poisson Rouge in New York Thursday. Info.
