SoulNRnB's Great Producers 9 - Louie Vega
One half of the masterful Masters at Work with partner Kenny Dope, Louie Vega helped shape the soulful house blueprint.From the mid Nineties until the present day, hes a prominent force on the house scene.
So why seperate him from Kenny when he too is an excellent producer, arranger and remixer?
Well, Its Louie's work away from MAW and Nu Yorican Soul that grabs me just as much. His remixing and production arranging work for other artists, his work with Elements of Life, the promotion of the latin sound (Thats obviously in his blood) that we just dont hear that often nowadays.
So this is a little showcase of Louie's talents, both with and without Kenny (Who may get his one of these too!).
Not only a great DJ (Check out his sets which blend old and new, as well as some of the best soulful house out there), but a great producer/arranger/writer. He deserves his place on my list!
