Im a big fan of the Masters at Work, so as soon as I saw this CD I purchased it and with great excitement I gave it a blast with the volume up high. CD1 is mixed by Louie Vega. CD2 is mixed by Kenny Dope. CD3 is a bounus CD containing a selection of unmixed tracks. Whilst both mix CDs are soulful house, its quite a trancey selection of tunes. A totally different sound from the first MAW Soulheaven mix album.
If youre into your soulful house or the MAW then Id say get this!! NOW!!!

Kenny 'Dope' Gonzalez and 'Lil' Louis Vega are the Masters At Work. The MAW name and logo are synonymous around the world and the logo, in fact, has now become a standard quality mark in the industry............And this CD is no exception.

I have been a fan of the MAW since my love for House music blossomed in the early 90's and since then they have not failed to continually raise the bar and set the standard for all mixing and production, and I'll give you an idea of how good the mixing is on this CD. When I first listened (Louis Vega mix 1) I was driving and when I stopped at lights I looked at the track listing thinking it was track 2, but when I checked it was already at track 4. The mixing is so subtle and blended with such skill and accuracy it is amazing.

Louis Vega eases you into mix 1 with some cool latino vibes then takes a deep progressive turn. He progresses into some pumping vocal house and then hits you with the deep progressive classic Gravity by Selan and into this mixes the hand raising 2006 top track Let's Be Young by Quentin Harris. Tribal stomper Jero by Dennis Ferrer then follows. Then a mix for all house heads. House classic Love & Happiness by River Ocean Tito mixed with Julien Jabre's 2006 beauty Swimming Places. It sound's incredible!

Kenny Dope gives the listener no respite as he opens up with Ruffneck's pumping vocal classic Baby You. He keeps it bouncy and vocal but then gets dirty with 2006's dance floor killer Shake It by DJ Rooster and Sammy Peralta. It then takes a tribal twist and then it goes deep with Steve Edwards and Big Strong Love and then lifts the vibe up with Tina Brossard's vocal classic Joy. A top mix.

Both mixes are of extraordinarily high quality. And the listener is taken on a journey through all genre of the music.....Vocal, Soulful, Tribal, Deep, Gospel, Progressive, Funky.......And there are even some breaks thrown in. The good thing you get with all MAW mix's is that they always experiment and you will get anything but the bog standard 4-beat mixing you can hear on any other bog standard mix. The track selections change the mood constantly and you really do no know what's coming next.

This is a must for any collection. Please buy it. You won't be disappointed.

What comes to mind when two fellas who call themselves " masters at work " release a double
CD like this? Is it just me, or would you expect something special. My comments may certainly
cause controversy I'm sure. Which brings me to this....If there's a highlight it's the first
6 tracks of CD 1....this is soulheaven. The Dopeman tries to replicate this but suffers due
to his choice of material. Kenny if you ever read this, can you tell me, what were you thinking
with tracks #6, #7, #8?...A let down.....or too much dope for the dopeman...you be the judge.

Forget the ordinary disco mixes; get your body moving , turn up the volume, add some alcohol + sunshine and have a good time! I've been into dance music of all genres since the early 1960s, (yes, I'm supposedly over the hill) but who gives a fig, life is too short. A great compilation for a good time.

If your into your house music then this CD is a must. Deep, sexy and raw, like house music is meant to be, kenny Dope and Louie Vega take you on a jorney into the underworld. Sit back and imagine being in an underground house music party somewere in New York. The fact that this is mixed by true professionals in the game is brought home here.
