Masters at Work are releasing a 40 track anthology

Masters At Work to Release 40-Track Anthology “House Masters”

The definition of what listeners consider to be house music has changed, with many trying to slap the genre’s name on to shit that is clearly EDM-knobtwisting audio hell. However, you’ll never be able to do that and get away with it as long as the Masters At Work (Lil’ Louie Vega and Kenny Dope) are around. The duo clearly agrees with that setntiment, as they are releasing the 40-track anthology House Masters to celebrate 25 years of their union with house.

The anthology highlights all of the duo’s shining moments, featuring tracks such as “The Ha Dance” and “Work,” along with various remixes, (which surprisingly didn’t include their take on Hardrive’s “Deep Inside“) and lesser-known works chosen by the duo. The four-disc anthology is set to release on September 21, and hopefully will introduce a younger generation to true (New York) house music. Check out the tracklisting for House Masters below.
