Masters At Work :: Boxed 95

This is a live recording of one of the best house duos in the world Masters at Work.  Recorded in 1995, "Little Louie" Vega and Kenny "Dope" Gonzalez do their magic on 4 turntables.  After listening to the mix a couple times, I absolutely love it.  What sets it apart and gives it that true LIVE party experience is that they are really working the decks and mixers.  It's not your prototypical studio mix that just blends one song after another--- YAWN.  Instead, you can transport yourself to the party with the mental image of house goodness this mix paints.  I will not run down every track on the tracklist because they were almost all absolute HITS.  Anybody who's new to house music needs to get out the pen and paper and take notes-- not just for every one of these songs but how they are played.  School is in session and MAW are the professors.

  1. This mix is 101% slammin! I had 2 copies of this on cassette and both copies got stolen back in '95...

    The track listing has a few errors if you want me to forward the correct listings hit me up!



  2. Thanks to DK, the playlist is much more accurate!
