Product Description

Product Description

There are few names in dance music today which need less of an introduction than Masters At Work. The duo of Louie Vega and Kenny 'Dope' Gonzalez have forged a reputation for genre-eschewing DJ sets and flawless house production during careers which have spanned decades and seen hundreds of releases and remixes. Their influence and reach changed house forever. Taking the song-writing ability of Vega and fusing it with Gonzalez's encyclopaedic knowledge of breaks and hip-hop, the pair created a smooth-yet-underground sound that is still being copied and referenced by producers today.

Now, for only the second time in their 25 year partnership, they're putting together a “Best Of” collection for Defected Records, the home of some of one of their biggest ever releases, the 1999 hit ‘To Be In Love’.

The timing couldn't be more apt during a period which is being dominated by 'deep house', a genre MAW were at the forefront of when it first emerged in the mid-90s. But to tie them to one sound would be far too simplistic. Masters At Work have always operated according to their own rules and their own sound. Whether it's the sampling techniques of hip-hop, the swing of Latin styles or the soulful euphoria of house – they've always added their own special ingredients, which is what makes Masters At Work genuine dance music legends

Format: Audio CD
The Defected label has, in the past, released some definitive collections from the masters of house and techno music, of which Defected Presents Def Mix Classics remains the shining beacon. Also great, are Defected Presents Kevin Saunderson In The House and Defected Presents House Masters - MK.

That Masters At Work are one of the major names in dance music is undeniable, though for me personally, MAW would completely have passed under my radar but for Kenny Dope's contributions to New York's Nu Groove record label under his Powerhouse alias (see Nu Groove LP - Nu Groove - 25 West 38th - Network Records). Thereafter Gonzalez and Vega became superstars. Largely they retained artistic integrity though they undoubtedly took cash for remixes they probably shouldn't have bothered with - as the late Frankie Knuckles once pointed out so dismissively in the "Dancing in the Street" documentary with his comment about their remix of Julio Iglesias: "I'm sorry, I don't see Julio Iglesias in here [my club]".

Whilst the duo may not have lived up to Frankie's high standards all the time, Masters At Work were nevertheless responsible for some amazing tracks: on this compilation, and worth the price of the album alone, are "The Nervous Track" by NuYorican Soul, as well as their remixes of Saint Etienne's "Only Love Can Break Your Heart" and Brand New Heavies' "Close to You".

Fantastic selection from two of my house heroes whose expert output has been financially draining me for many many years!! Too many good singles, CDs, remixes... Agree that the lack of sleeve notes is a shame as they're always a good toilet read.

Classic, soulful garage and house from two of the most influential producers/DJs of the scene. An absolute must-have for those tracks missing from your collection or as an introduction to their awesome body of work.

I was initially a little disappointed that the tracks on here were the same tracks that Negro and Vega and co were throwing out in the 90's but loved some of the remixed version. There are numerous fabulous tracks on each of these cds, which is hard to come by in a compilation album. It made me want to fly over to Ibiza tomorrow to see them so they must have done something right!. The best compilation cd I've bought in years.

It's MAW...no words can do their productions justice (have most of these three times over but still...).
However - no sleeve notes? Big oversight.
Lovely package and selections otherwise.

MAW, Wow! Great workers, beautiful songs and remixes, specially Disc One. Didn't like so much about the instrumental versions. MAW knows the house!
