Often referred to as the kings of house, Masters at Work are largely responsible for the rise and shaping of NYC house music and its exciting mutations.
Alongside Masters At Work, the duo has adopted a number of aliases including Nuyorican Soul, KenLou, Sole Fusion, the Bucketheads, and the Untouchables, mastering a wide variety of projects that helped cement their reputation as one of, if not the most versatile and successful dance pairings around.
