Their name says it all: Masters At Work. ‘Little’ Louie Vega and Kenny ‘Dope’ Gonzalez have spent more than 20 years together, shepherding dance music down new paths with their inventive productions and imaginative feel for different musical forms. Synonymous with the rise and peak of NYC house music, Kenny Dope and Louie Vega met through their mutual friend Todd Terry, resulting in a fruitful production partnership full of timeless hits. With remixes being their specialty, the Masters at Work treatment has been given to a diverse roster of artists, from Madonna, Debbie Gibson, and Lisa Stansfield to Saint Etienne, Michael Jackson, Brand New Heavies, and about 800 other artists. They defiantly mix everything they can find—house, hip-hop, funk, disco, Latin, African and jazz—into a universal groove.
