Their name says it all - Masters At Work. 'Little' Louie Vega and Kenny 'Dope' Gonzalez celebrate 20 years together, channeling dance music down new paths with their inventive production style and imaginative feel for different musical forms. The two native New Yorkers have amassed an overwhelming body of work including hundreds of original productions and defiantly mix everything they can find - house, hip hop, funk, disco, Latin, African and jazz - into a universal groove. XLR8R's Shawn Reynaldo sits down with them on the couch during Red Bull Music Academy's 'New York City to SF Bay' lecture series in San Francisco to discuss the start of their careers and dissolving the barriers between genres.
Masters at Work talk at The Red Bull Music Academy Mr. X national meetup 2012 in San Francisco!! Interviewed by XLR8R Magazine they drop some knowledge on music, history, and producing. Toward the end of of the video I ask the last question of the lecture! Later that night I got to see them jam live together at 1015 Folsom for my b-day!
