Louie Vega's latest album, Louie Vega Starring... is a dualdisc conceptual record featuring over twenty-five artists on twenty-eight different songs.

By bringing together the diverse genres of house, funk, latin soul and gospel, Louie Vega has created a record filled with positive vibes. Like a fine bottle of wine, the album’s ingredients and their interactions with each other come to the light upon pressing play. Listeners can expect notes of Afro & Latin and pure house infused with funk, gospel, Caribbean, jazz, r&b, soul. All the ingredients for a truly global party.

Each song is uniquely crafted to represent a different emotion, energy or experience. Their melange with Louie Vega’s timeless music production is the album’s true treat, “Today’s listener wants to feel good and that’s exactly what our songs and tracks do. We celebrate the gift of love, art and music,” adds Vega. Followers of his illustrious career will find the album unveils a completely new side of the legendary artist; that of a sound chemist. Louie explains, “My inspirations came from various visits around the world and experiences in life. As far as the album’s sounds, I revisited lots of R&B, soul, gospel, nu jazz, even some disco, all within the backdrop of house music, took it back to the artist and song tailoring” .

Describing his artistic process, “The album came together naturally, it was a growing process. It was like planting a tree, each branch represented an artist, a sound, a groove. The entire process happened within a few years. It started with a few songs and then this past year, I was in a creative state and the music happened back to back. As I travelled and toured, I met artists on the road and would record with them a few weeks later. The experience with the artists on the album was magical; they are all so talented and very unique and have their own special quality.”

The delivered sampling of featured artists on Louie Vega Starring… is one for the record books and a must for any music aficionado as Louie explains, “This body of work is a masterpiece that will be party of my legacy. I see it up there on the same high shelf with albums like Nuyorican Soul, Elements of Life, and Masters at Work.”
