“Little Louie” Vega and Kenny “Dope” Gonzalez are New Yorker natives who created an American house production known as Masters at Work. As the name suggests, this team works tirelessly to redefine the way people perceive music in clubs and parties. They strategically mix everything to create unique sounds that the world cannot resist.
Their inventive production style and innovative musical forms are greatly respected.
This duo also created Masters At Work Records, a credible label for artists who are looking for platforms that stimulate and encourage creative music creations. They have also worked with other notable labels like Cutting Records, Giant Step, MCA Records, Tommy Boy Entertainment, and many others.
The talented pair of DJs, Masters at Work, share their praise-worthy work with the large, hyped-up house crowds of Ibiza regularly.
Over the past few seasons, the duo performed at Glitterbox, a party brand famous for organising thrilling raves at Hï Ibiza. The talent-packed lineup included names like Honey Dijon, Dimitri from Paris, Derrick Carter, Basement Jaxx, Purple Disco Machine, Todd Terry, Roger Sanchez, Fatboy Slim, and many more.
In 2023, Masters at Work only made one appearance in Ibiza at the Glitterbox Closing Party. We have hopes for appearances in 2024! Watch this space for more updates.
They also performed at the IMS opening party at the start of the 2017 season at Pacha, with many other respected names in the music industry like Alex Kennon, Agoria, The Blessed Madonna, and others.
Masters at Work has become a great icon, a symbol for multicultural society, creating distinct music that is a defiant mix of any different genre the team learns about — including house, hip-hop, funk, disco, Latin, African, and jazz. They translate it all into a universal groove that is enjoyed by a lot of house music lovers. For this surreal take on music, they have received many accolades and titles.
MAW won the Outstanding Contribution Award in 2002, given by the US Dance-stars Awards. They have also managed to attain noteworthy rankings at the DJ Magazines’ top 100 DJs list consistently from 1997 to 2003.
Some well-known hits created by this duo are Work, When You Touch Me, Backfired, I Can’t Get No Sleep and many more.
