DESCRIPTION

There are few names in dance music today which need less of an introduction than Masters At Work. The ground-breaking project of Louie Vega and Kenny Dope, Masters At Work forged a reputation for genre-eschewing DJ sets and flawless house production throughout their extraordinary careers, while their influence and reach changed house forever.

Taking the distinct and already highly praised production aesthetic of Vega and fusing it with Gonzalez's encyclopaedic knowledge of breaks and hip-hop, Masters At Work created an accessible yet defiantly underground sound that is still being copied and referenced – but crucially never bettered – by many of today’s contemporary producers.

House Masters Masters At Work is the distillation of 25 years of both genre defining and genre defying moments: hand-picked compendium of original productions and remixes set over four expansive CDs.

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. This is what makes Masters At Work genuine dance music legends, and makes House Masters Masters At Work such an essential collection.
