In this episdoe you can enjoy : Louie Vega shouldn’t need an introduction, but we’ll do it anyways. The Bronx-born Puerto Rican artist embodies the soulful sound of New York house music, and he’s been doing it since the ’80s. His history features a litany of legendary names and clubs, from the Devil’s Nest to his much-vaunted residency at The Sound Factory in Manhattan, and he’s made music with the likes of Todd Terry, Mood II Swing and Barbara Tucker. But it’s with Kenny “Dope” Gonzalez that Vega made his most cherished and influential work as the duo Masters Of Work, putting out huge singles and making house remixes for some of the most iconic names in ’90s pop music.
To listen Vega’s discography, especially as part of Masters At Work, is to hear the evolution of house music and garage (yes, both US and UK). It’s difficult to overstate the impact those ’90s records had on New York and beyond, and they’re still some of the most swinging, undeniable house records ever made. Just try playing a MAW Dub for a newbie and see their reaction.
House music has been Vega’s lifelong mission, and almost four decades in, he’s still refining his craft, moving towards ever-jazzier, ever more soulful sounds. His RA Podcast shows off some of his favorite tracks from contemporaries like Mood II Swing, as well as his band Elements Of Life and a handful of new tracks from his forthcoming album, Expansions In The NYC, which aims to capture the sound of his club night of the same name. You’ll hear lush live instrumentation, powerful vocals and, of course, those addictive, sometimes skippy house beats—the sound of a master at work.
