Oval Space – Metro Area
Following the debut of their in-house music programme with a fantastic live set from analogue techno innovators Cobblestone Jazz, Oval Space Music invite this year’s most popular duo Bicep on the 25th of May with company from Glasgow’s DJ duo Optimo and Brooklyn genre bending masters, Metro Area Live.
The brainchild of veteran producers Morgan Geist and Darshan Jesrani, Metro Area was born out of the duo’s dichotomous love of both the old moods of R&B, disco and boogie and the more cutting-edge sound of innovative house and techno. Metro Area burst onto the scene in 1999 with their self-titled debut 12″ featuring the cult smash “Atmosphrique”, and has since been pleasing our ears with releases on Environ, Tiger Sushi and fabric. Metro Area bring back the soulful experimentation of early club classics, mixing live and electronic instruments. Simultaneously, the mood and minimalism of more recent dance music forms creep into the mix: Detroit’s icy futurism, Chicago’s abstract track-modes and the warmth of New York and New Jersey’s deep house. One of this year’s most popular DJ duos has without a doubt been Bicep, AKA Belfast boys Andy Ferguson and Mat McBriar will be there on the night. The depth of their musical knowledge has stood them in good stead, providing the fuel for some really great DJ sets as well as their musical productions. Brought together through a common obsession with all things analogue, their blog, ‘Feel My Bicep’, has grown to be the first port of call for those searching for cutting-edge and hard-to-find disco. Since then they have put their encyclopaedic knowledge of House into their own music and exploded into the global dance community. A staple within the scene for over 15 years, DJ duo Twitch & JG Wilkes, aka Optimo will also be present.
