A fantastic tribute to one of the greatest production teams of the 90s! Kenny Dope and Little Louis Vega – working together as Masters At Work – are perhaps the most influential team to hit soul music since Gamble & Huff or Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis
. They bring a huge amount of underground dancefloor influences to the mix – from house, to Latin, to funk, to hip hop, to classic club – and they handle all styles equally well, with none of the bullshit crossover weak-ass sounds that you'll hear from other fake-heavy producers. This set features a huuuuuuge amount of work by the team, and it's only part 1 of a 2-part masterworks collection on BBE that celebrates the 10th anniversary of Kenny & Louie's partnership! This CD version is packaged in a very nice little box, and includes 4 CDs worth of material – broken into the themes "vocals", "dubs and MAW vocals", "beats & loops", and "tools & grooves". The selection of tracks is excellent, and there's so much stuff in here, you may as well open up your own club! Titles include "Love & Happiness" by River Ocean with India, "Carry On" by Martha Wash, "Voices In My Mind" by Voices, "Ride On The Rhythm" by Marc Anthony, "Beautiful People" by Barbara
Tucker, "Para Los Rumberos" by Tito Puente, "Set Your Lovin Free" by Lisa Stansfield, "Getting It Right" by Allison Limerick, "When You Touch Me" by MAW & India, "Moonshine" by Kenlou, "Souffles H" by Mondo Grosso, "We Can Make It" by Sole Fusion, "Sume Sigh Say" by House Of Gypsies, "The Ha Dance" by MAW, and "Boomin In Ya Jeep" by Kenny Dope with Screechy Dan.
