Five Dopest House Classics by Masters At Work
|Kenny Dope of Masters At Work.|
Releasing variously as M.A.W., Nuyorican Soul, and KenLou among other monikers, this pair was responsible for some of the greatest hits of '90s house. And it's no surprise they commanded the NYC dance music scene, with a soulful diva-vocalized sound that was a direct descendant of the city's golden disco heyday. But then, as Nuyoricans growing up in the world's spiciest musical melting pot, their sound is also infused with Latin, jazz, and hip-hop influences.
M.A.W.'s Kenny Dope will be alighting upon Bardot on Saturday for what is sure to be a house party of epic proportions.
In the meantime, brush up on your Masters At Work with these five classic jams.
1. "Can't Stop the Rhythm" featuring Jocelyn Brown
2. "I Can't Get No Sleep" featuring India
3. "It's All Right, I Feel It" featuring Jocelyn Brown
