Louie Vega and Kenny Dope ushered in a golden era of dance music in the 1990s as the untouchable remix/production team, Masters At Work. Together, the New York visionaries created a signature sound that set the tone for DJs and clubbers worldwide, establishing a sophisticated collaborative style unmatched by few since entering the arena.
Fast forward to 2013 as Vega and Gonzalez return to the studio and unleash a fresh arsenal for the next generation of House, starting with exclusive Masters At Work Remixes for Children of the World, the first release on Fania Records/Vega Records from the new album Elements of Life: Eclipse. The magic between these virtuosos remains intact during the creative process on the Master At Work Dub, Remix and Soulfrito versions, each trailblazing in its own right with a strong club big dance floor dub style, powerful beats & Latin Soul influence, more than enough booming bass to fill a room and that something extra to satisfy the eclectic crowds.
"Kenny and I have decided to come in as Masters At Work and remix each of our solo projects. We both have a first single from our solo albums," Vega explains mentioning Gonzalez and neo-soul artist Raheem DeVaughns anticipated Final Call. "We came into the studio to give each project the Masters At Work touch.
And, coming March 20 for Miami Music Week, Vega and Gonzalez reunite for Masters At Work at Sea during the Winter Music Conference Yacht party, giving you the MAW Top Class Miami parties they were known for during WMC. Theyll also hit the Detroit Music Festival on May 26, and two exclusive Ibiza dates with Carl Coxs Revolution and Lucianos famed Cadenza events. For the MAW fans, stay tuned for two Masters At Work EPs to be released this summer.
High standards weve come to expect from legendary Masters At Work productions turbocharge this round of new remixes for Children of the World. Both DJ/producers pull syncopated beats and rhythms together in a way re-defining the original track yet careful not to overpower Josh Milans silky vocals and stirring lyrics with heavy-handed edits. Prime example: the Soulfrito Mix pays attention to detail by accentuating some beautiful guitar riffs, percussion and an impeccable piano solo drenched in soul. The Masters At Work Dub turns everything on its head with a funky, flawless bass line and hard hitting beats poised to become a universal groove for devotees and die-hard fans in the crowd.
"We've also been touring a little this past year and have done 10 shows at various venues and festivals to spark the return of Masters At Work," Vega says. "So these mixes will start heating things up for MAW!" Among those events: Rock In Rio Lisboa (on the bill with Stevie Wonder, Jamiroquai and Janelle Monae); BPM Festival at the Crosstown Rebels event, "Rebel Rave;" O2 Arena in London; Carl Cox's birthday at Space in Ibiza; Red Bull Music Academys lecture series in San Francisco and the closing party in Ibiza at Ushuaia for Luciano & Cadenza.
The Masters At Work touch on Children Of The World is sure to shake up dance floors worldwide. Get ready, MAW are COMING ON STRONG with EOL!
