Boomkat Product Review:
Welcome return of the Areal label to these pages, and we catch up with them on something of a roll. Working with a well defined roster all their own over the past couple of years, Areal have increased the pressure in 2003, after last year's 'Blindhouse' smash by Ada, found its rightful place at the front of Michael Meyer's box and topped his personal playlist chart for 2002. Metope drops some spurting techno badness for the harder dance fraternity, pitch it up its surefire mental, down and you have a piece of well conceived dancefloor dynamite still. However you look at it, an essential choice for the boxes of jocks all over, leavened by some drop-dead keys in the breakdowns. Smart.
