On the heels of a very successful GetOpen Session at the Coney Island boardwalk, I made my way 2 Boston 2 play UTIOPIA SUNDAY with my fellow countryman, DJ Bruno for an all night set across the spectrum of deep house!
I'm sorry about the sound quality on the bass end...IT'S NOT YOUR SPEAKERS...it's the recording.
Like i said, it ain't the best but u definitely get the message i was sending and journey i was taking u on.
Thanks again Boston!
I love y'all!!

Ok...there was a time when deep house was straight forward & it was HOT!!
I was dancin' & doin my thing & havin' a great time doin' it...then...it was like the tide comin' in.
U heard the drums rise from somewhere in the distance. Basslines got minimized 2 drum tones & atmospheric elements & strings were everywhere at once. Just like that...what was already deep got damn near primal...ancestral.
That's what inspired this mix. Some of these tracks were the 1st 2 bring 2 my attention the evolution at hand. Peep the track list & if u were around at the time...u'll know what i'm talkin'bout.
