Masters At Work announce bumper 40-track anthology House Masters

Louie Vega and Kenny Dope condense 25 years into one essential anthology.

Iconic New York house duo Masters At Work have announced a 4xCD anthology compiling 40 tracks and remixes from their influential discography.

Due on September 21 through Defected, House Masters includes big hits like ‘Work’ and the ballroom anthem ‘The Ha Dance’ as well as some lesser-known cuts selected by Vega and Dope.

“We wanted to try and pick out some of the joints that got overlooked the first time around,” says Dope. “There were tracks that were bigger than others, but that doesn’t mean those other records aren’t as good.”

Vega says: “Even with those bigger records, there’s an audience that doesn’t know them, so we’re trying to think about the younger kids as well as our older fans with the selection.”

The compilation follows a vinyl box set of Kenny Dope’s classic breakbeats released earlier this year – check out the full tracklist below and watch an epic four-hour set from the Masters recorded in 2013.
