Little Louie Vega ( Masters At Work , Vega Records )
A godfather of global dance music, Louie Vega has painted an award-winning career from a palette mixed with everything from salsa and afro-beat, to jazz, hip-hop and soul. What distinguishes the Grammy winner and 5-time nominee as one of the best living house music deejays is his ability to evolve alongside the times, distill the current musical landscape through his unique taste and put his own timeless spin on it. “Little” Louie Vega, as he is sometimes affectionately known, was born in the Bronx into a musically gifted family (his father, a jazz saxophonist, and his uncle, Salsa King Héctor Lavoe). The “Little” moniker is ironic, given the fact that by the 80s he was deejaying at clubs he wasn’t even old enough to attend, holding residencies at Studio 54, Devil’s Nest, Hearthrob, Roseland, and the Palladium. Soon Vega was producing his own remixes, which included Information Society’s “Running”, Noel’s “Silent Morning” and Debbie Gibson’s “Only in my Dreams”. Then in 1991 he joined Atlantic Records—and hit the mainstream. Teaming with an-up-and-coming Marc Anthony, he helped to produce “Ride on the Rhythm”. An immediate hit, the single put Vega and Anthony on the map. The duo would rock the club circuit, with their success culminating when they opened for Tito Puente at his 100 Album concert at Madison Square Garden.
One of the keys to Vega’s success is his knack for refusing to being boxed into any one category, not only reflected in the various music styles his songs play with, but by his fruitful collaborations with other artists. And so more success came in 1991 from the production team he created with Brooklyn-based deejay Kenny “Dope” Gonzalez. Masters at Work, as they were called, were responsible for the critically acclaimed albums “Nuyorican Soul” and “Masters At Work – Our Time is Coming”. Not to mention the duo found the time to remix and or produce for Michael Jackson, Luther Vandross, Madonna, Jamiroquai, Tito Puente, India, Janet Jackson, Tania Maria, George Benson, Black Eyed Peas, Jocelyn Brown, Los Amigos Invisibles, Bebe Winans, and Earth Wind & Fire.
Our 2nd guest!!
One of our favourite Tel Aviv Dj's, selectors , Producers:
Amichay Matyas (sound familiar, The Block):
Amichay is pushing boundaries in Tel-Aviv’s underground for the past 20 years. Being an active force as a DJ and selector, he still keeps himself busy by digging the crates for new sounds to raise the bar he set at a young age and. Within these 20 years, he also gained mythical reputation within the Israeli club culture with his residency at The Block. He regularly warms-up
for DJs such as Theo Parrish, Maurice Fulton, DJ Harvey and others at the renowned club in Tel-Aviv. But in a desolated and exclusive venue anywhere in the world that will project the right atmosphere of total musical freedom and hi-fidelity sound, Amichay’s record selection will hit you at the right spot at the right moment.
With both feet in the club culture, it seemed only right to think about the next musical move: a record label. Championed by their residencies at The Block, Amichay Matyas and Yogo founded Bauhaus Records in 2017, based on music put forward by musicians from their own city. The records come in all shapes and sizes; House, Acid and other obscurities made in Tel-Aviv.
Amichay is currently dedicating his al to his passion, leaving other trajectories aside and following just one; music. This love for music is his driving force and his addiction to collecting vinyl records stems from that core. As a lifelong music fanatic, record collector and co-owner of a label which pays tribute to the white city of Tel-Aviv, Amichay is well established, manifesting cosmic old school flavors with unheard uniqueness.
