Product Description

In celebration of West End Record’s 25th Anniversary, the label is proud to announce the release of Masters at Work presents: West End Records (the 25th Anniversary Edition Mastermix). This spectacular package encompasses twenty-one West End Records classics hand-selected and presented in a continuous DJ-mix on a two-CD set (one downtempo, one uptempo) by the revered production team, Masters at Work ("Little Louie" Vega and Kenny "Dope" Gonzalez).

Not only are the tracks mixed together by MAW, but also eight of those twenty-one tracks will have been especially re-edited or re-mixed and re-E.Q.’d by the duo exclusively for this compilation! These special versions will be available in the mix on CD and as individual tracks only on the companion vinyl edition—and nowhere else, available at DJ/dance/vinyl shops worldwide.

Thank you for providing a nice set of dance tracks that are mixed well...

I was the mastering engineer alongside Herb Powers Jr. a well respected mastering engineer in the music business.

Sometimes it's good to go back, back to a time when there was soul and depth to dance/club music.

I am a big MAW fan so it was with baited breath that I waited for this cd. I had heard about it during the summer and was constantly checking the locals for any signs. First let me say MAW can add another superlative to their resume. This is an outstanding project because Louie and Kenny obvisously respect the music of the West End catalogue. This is not some tripped up fad gadget! It is up to the minute clubland music and would fit in superbly in any underground/deep house set. However, they have kept true to the original production and have added very subtle update touches to these classics. It's a winner from start to finish -- just put it on and let the music take you - whether you are an old garage head (like me) or a new jack weened on house you will find your place in this collection. Kudos guys!

The West End slogan of "Where the Sun Sets ... and the Stars Rise" has never been more true than with this mastermix set. MAW are the perfect choice to the anniversary mix. These guys are the REAL dynamic duo. They have once again remixed selected songs and maintained the songs' integrity and original feel. Favorite tracks include "Can't You Feel It", "Let's Go Dancin'", "Is It All Over My Face" and "All Night (I Can Do It Right)." Furthermore, the mastermix itself is excellent. This cd set is the perfect introduction of the foundations of House Music!

Sometimes it's good to go back, back to a time when there was soul and depth to dance/club music. Retouched with perfection and mixed with love. If you like uplifting dance music with feeling, then this is for you. A history of one of the most influential labels that has affected the shape of current club and dance hits. If you want one album to lift your spirits then this is for you. Enjoy the Dance!

This CD is FLAWLESS!!! The remixes are amazing, the track selection is divine, the overall effect is mindblowing. This is one of the best compilations I have ever listened to. You should check out Mel Cherin's book too...there is a lot of interesting info about West End, The Garage, Larry Levan etc.
...Got me love dancin'

I was the mastering engineer alongside Herb Powers Jr. a well respected mastering engineer in the music business. If people have a problem with the mix cd they should go buy the vinyl and do their own mix.. It is available and sounds great. After all the original recordings were released on vinyl only, and I should know, I did the vinyl for the remastered versions.

This CD is smooth just like cream in your coffee.
I thought the music, the arrangement was great and the mixing was just right not too much, MAW brought the back to the front and you can really enjoy the quality of the music!!!!!
The best money I ever spent.

I should have bought this 3 years ago!

Every tune is a winner, the music that masters at work listen to. Well put together and a true rare classic.

I have been a fan of Masters At Work since forever and will buy ANYTHING they put out. I am also a fan of classics and I love the WESTEND songs. This CD is just as I said...a work of art put simply as that! I like when someone remixes a classic without taking away the original elements. The MASTERS AT WORK do just that. If you seriously liked the westend sound back in the day, you seriously won't be disappointed. You simply must purchase this CD. HUGE shouts to my favorite house artists and remixers...put simply:THE MASTERS AT WORK!You've done it again! Bravo!
