Morgan Geist Returns with First New Solo Release Since 2008
Producer Morgan Geist makes up one half of the dance duo Metro Area and has released music under banners like Storm Queen and the Galleria. Now, he's prepping an EP under his own name, entitled Megaprojects One.

The four-track record will be will be out on October 23 through his own Environ Records and marks Geist's first release under his own name since 2008's Double Night Time, which prominently featured vocal contributions from Junior Boy Jeremy Greenspan. That's the cover of the EP above. All four beat-driven tracks can be previewed through the retailer Deejay.de.

Geist explained the EP with the following statement:

Megaprojects are by definition large-scale, high-tech and cost billions of dollars, whereas this is a collection of low-tech tracks made with cheap little drum machines and rejected old synths, so I thought it was a good name. I composed and mixed to the best of my ability and with hope they'll feel more 'mega' than they actually are. And of course I've always felt inspired and fascinated by actual megaprojects: imposing, surreal engineering and architecture like giant hydroelectric dams, soaring bridges and strange-looking, exposed-concrete government buildings.

This is apparently the first in a series of Megaprojects EPs, as indicated by the inclusion of the word One in the title.

Megaprojects One:

A1. Darkstar
A2. Trackstar
B1. The Idiot Track
B2. Clarence
