SALES INFORMATION

OVERVIEW

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
