Too easy

Written by: 31 July 2015 No Comment

This week’s mix is just far too easy… too easy to find, too easy to love and too easy to hit the replay button on.

Still no one said finding music was meant to be hard….

“House music’s greatest hit-makers? 

Quite possibly. Since the end of the 1980s, Kenny Dope and Louie Vega – given the Masters at Work name, so the story goes, by Todd Terry – have been releasing house and garage anthems with unbelievable regularity. There’s ‘The Ha Dance’ – the track that gave ballroom its trademark Ha crash. There’s ‘Work’, one of the most remixed and sampled tracks in dance music history. There’s ‘To Be In Love’, one of the most perfect synergies of dance music and pop music ever made – and these are just the tip of the MAW iceberg, we’ve not even started on solo hits like Kenny Dope’s ‘The Bomb! (These Sounds Fall Into My Mind)’ and ‘No Hook’, and side gigs like Kenlou.

You get the picture: these two could play nothing but their own material for two hours and still not even scratch the surface of their vast, influential and – most importantly – ridiculously fun discography. FACT asked them to try. This is Masters at Work in the mix for FACT – sometimes all you need is what it says on the tin.”
