Since 1999, Metro Area has produced many original releases, while continuing to remix and perform-touring as DJs around the world, from Norway to Japan to South America.

Blondes (Live set), support

After getting their start performing in DIY spaces, the duo-Sam Haar and Zach Steinman-released their 2012 debut album, Blondes, and began performing more throughout the United States and Europe. Their most recent album, Swisher, was released in 2013.
