One of the best reissues to come out of 2008 was the (assumingly bootlegged) re-arrival of Rheji Burrell's Files record under his Utopia Project alias. Originally released in 1990, the record reeks of proto-deep house and is certainly a harbinger of what later became a New York deep house sound. With thick kicks, crisp handclaps, lovely lush synth stabs, and a very nicely synched bass-line, "File #1" is a real treasure and pleasure for the years almost twenty years later. Definitely blasting this late-night in the car!

The Utopia Project- File #1

Tomorrow, thinking of doing a piece on the young producers making waves right now.
