legendary duo Kenny Dope and Louie Vega have announced the relaunch the iconic MAW Records with a newly remastered catalog, unearthed new mixes and “Mattel” — the first new Masters At Work single in more than 20 years.

From March 26 2021 — the entire MAW catalog is being made digitally available for the first time. Several MAW classics including “Voices In My Mind” by Voices, “Bangin’ Early Theme” by KenLou and “Like A Butterfly (You Send Me)” by MAW featuring Patti Austin have been remastered.

Also, a number of “previously unreleased versions of various tracks” will be seeded to download shops — ideally for enterprising DJs to scour the internet and find on their own.

And April 2, 2021 marks the release of “Mattel” — the first new MAW single in more than 20 years. Named after the Mattel Synsonics, a drum synthesizer marketed by toy manufacturer Mattel in the early 1980s with a quirky and really unique sound, Louie Vega and Kenny Dope collaborated in the studio with original sounds of the drum machine with a percussion solo played live by Kenny Dope and bassline and stabs by Louie Vega.

“Mattel” is the first of a promised series of new releases from Masters At Work throughout 2021 into 2022. It’s out April 2, 2021 on the resurrected MAW Records.
