Defected Announces Masters at Work Anthology

Defected has announced that it will issue an extensive anthology from Masters at Work, the pioneering house duo of "Little" Louie Vega and Kenny "Dope" Gonzalez. The forthcoming House Masters - Masters at Work distills the influential duo's output over 25 years of collaboration, and will reportedly offer 40 original productions and remixes from its far-reaching discography. According to Gonzalez, the selection process aimed to "pick out some of the joints that got overlooked the first time around," rather than assembling a "greatest hits" retrospective, and all included tracks can be found below, along with a video trailer. House Masters - Masters at Work lands on September 21 as a 4xCD, double LP, and digital release, but in the meantime, the NYC veterans' 2013 XLR8R podcast, which offers a selection of soul and swinging, percussion-heavy house cuts, can be streamed and downloaded here.
