Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

Little Louis Vega and Kenny "Dope" Gonzalez, the NY DJ/production/bandleading duo known as Masters At Work have spent the past 10 years writing the blueprint for house anthems. Part Two of their tenth anniversary collection focuses on 1996 to 2000 and features their infamous remix of Daft Punk's "Around The World" as well as a great, warped take on Mel B's "I Want You Back". Polyrhythmic to the last, they've stayed champions of the soulful and eclectic dance floor: a testament to their reach and ability to transcend the most ordinary of material. Their knack for remixes that ooze funk, style and sophistication is best exemplified with their electrifying treatment of Luther Vandross' "Are U Using Me" and the bad-ass garage diva they create out of Kele Le Roc on "You Did It Good" on CD 1. Equally arresting grooves come in the shape of Ultra Nate's "Divine Love" and George Benson's version of Donny Hathaway classic "The Ghetto" on CD 1 and CD 2 respectively. Elsewhere on CD 2 they fancy the avant-funk of Nigerian afrobeat creator, Fela Kuti. The result--"MAW Expensive" is a 12-minute beat odyssey with evocative vocals from Wunmi. In 1997, they released Nuyorican Soul, a classic example of their ability to bring out a sublime sunshine mood in just about everything they touch. Four Nuyorican cuts are featured here: "Mind Fluid", "You Can Do It Baby", "It's Alright, I Feel It" and "Runaway" on CDs 2, 3 and 4. Although the many achievements of MAW are enough to make most other impresarios quietly disappear, the duo's powers don't seem to be abating over time. Part Two, much like Part One is awesome, soulful dance music. --Reuben Dessay

5.0 out of 5 stars Genius 24 Oct 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is quite simply the best collection of dance music ever assembled.
I use the word "dance" because MAW cross every boundary - house, funk, disco, latin, hip-hop, soul, jazz - and most of the tracks on this album include all of the above.
In a day and age where we are constantly subjected to "UK garage" - rotten, soulless pap - it is heartwarming to know that MAW are still doing it after 10 years. The USA may produce the worst rock music in the world (Bon Jovi etc) but with MAW flying the Stars 'n' Stripes they are light years ahead of us in terms of dance. It is criminal that they have never really achieved commercial success in this country - as this collection will show - although maybe that is the best way. I don't think I could take seeing four boy racers in a souped-up Xr2 with a boombastic stereo, blasting out "To Be In Love". Maybe it's best kept for the people who know what it's about. Put it this way - MAW are The Beatles whilst DJ Luck and MC Neat are Keith Harris and Orville.
Here's to the next 10 years of Masters at Work - the finest dance act in the world. If you don't buy this you really are missing out on something very, very important indeed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Solid gold!!! part 2 29 Jan 2002
Format:Audio CD
MATERS AT WORK: The Tenth Anniversary Collection
PART ONE: 1990-1995 (4 cd's) 'silver box'
PART TWO: 1996-2000 (4 cd's) 'gold box'
The Definitive Remixes and Original Productions.
If you love the "Sweet-House" you must have this collection. It's a "PRECIOUS" work. This box is a treasure that I keep in my heart and my ears too. Solid gold. Sober gold and silver finishes for a collection of gems with the stamp of two heavyweights of New York's house scene: Kenny 'Dope' Gonzalez and 'Little' Louie Vega, i.e. Masters At Work. Two lusciously presented box sets, which each contain jewels for the enjoyment of modern music lovers. In this exhaustive tenth anniversary recompilation a large part of their work is brought together, both their own compositions and their remixes 'to order'. The first box features their work under the alias Nuyorican Soul, one of the outstanding examples of the fusion of jazz, Latin sounds and House, with classics such as 'The Nervous Track'. With regard to their work as remixers, the list of artists favoured with the MAW touch has no end. Highlights include their reworks for Daft Punk, Chic, Roni Size Reprazent, Karen Ramirez, Ultra Nate, Jerald Daemyon, Tony Touch, Mel B. and many more... Real House, Latin Style, Jazz and other delights. The amazing track "Dancing in Outer space - Atmosfear" it's a great remix and the beautiful "Runaway - Nuyorican Soul feat. India" and "MAW Expensive - Masters At Work" is incredible the most excellent track. This collection (Part One & Part Two) contains the essential house music that makes you relax and dance. Masters At Work are "SOLID GOLD".
The Masters also deserve to be compared with Larry Levan, the most influential dance music practitioner of the eighties.

5.0 out of 5 stars most definitely the masters! 21 Dec 2004
Format:Audio CD
this compilation is a must for any house music fan, whether you be new or old. MAW have been remixing and producing the best tracks in the business for over a decade now and the tracks on this cd shows not only their genius but diversity aswell. signature vocal tracks such as the truly sublime 'to be in love' and jocelyn brown featured 'its alright (i feel it) to more latin-jazz influenced tracks like 'el barrio' with george benson.the mix of tracks range from the nuyorican soul album to rnb remixes for the likes of kele le roc. this cd is unmixed so all the songs are full length for dj-ing delight. as a follow on from vol 1 its not as good overall, however the stand out tracks are huge!!! as a kenny and louie devotee i am biased when i say they can do no wrong, but if these guys can make the spice girls sound cool, they can do anything!

5.0 out of 5 stars TOP of the TOPS 9 Feb 2004
Format:Audio CD
Having heard last Friday Kenny Dope live set in Athens, memories woke and i put on the 4 cd s to enjoy one more time the soulful style of MAW. What to say about these 2 gyus??? They take you from Brazil to Africa, from Europe to US house without twisting their lil finger. Exceptional tracks, new or remixed, soulful, dance, funky, downtempo, everything. Trully two of the most brilliant composers and mucisians of house music.
Way to go gyus!!!!!!!!!!!!
