Masters At Work continues to impress the house music scene with remixes of “Love Changed Me” off Joseph Capriati’s Metamorfosi.
Louie Vega and Kenny Dope are legends in house music and have had an outstanding impact on the genre. Both artists began their work in the ’80s and are incredible on their own rights, but even more so when they collab. Since the early ’90s, both powerhouses have come together under the alias Masters At Work, producing some of the genres’ most beloved tracks and remixes such as “See-Line Woman,” “To Be In Love,” and “Brighter Days.”
Now, after unveiling the first offering of remixes from his album Metamorfosi, global powerhouse DJ and producer Joseph Capriati looked to these two legends to put their spin on “Love Changed Me.” Featuring Bryon Stingily, this track off the album was one of the true standouts with its smooth, melodic vibe which clearly caught the attention of Masters At Work as well. Having a track remixed by such a legendary duo is nothing less than an absolute honor for Capriati, and they really blew it out of the water with a flurry of six cuts in total.

The album starts off with Masters At Work’s Vox remix which really highlights the vocals of Bryon Stingily.
What makes the Vox remix stand out from the rest is the way the track is centered around R&B and house music singer Bryon Stingily’s dreamy vocals. The original provides a raw, emotional vibe while this new mix by MAW makes it a groovy club-ready track ready to scorch the dancefloor. The breakdown in the middle breathes much-needed energy that really only this duo can create. In essence, the track is one hell of a toe-tapper, and sure to get everybody moving the moment it hits ears.
Then, Masters At Work impresses with both the Rowdy Dub remix and the Rowdy Adlib Dub remix.
On the Rowdy Dub remix, MAW adds even more of their signature sound, using the snares on the offbeat, a fun-sounding kick, and adding trippy vocal effects to take it to the next level. Cymbals, stabs, and clicky drums greet the listener’s ears paired up with Stingily’s impressive vocals to make it impossible to sit still when listening. Adding to all of this, the Rowdy Adlib Dub version of the cut allows Stingily to show off more of his impressive vocal range and brings more of an R&B-type feel to it as well.
Instead of being more groovy and smooth, these remixes focus on making the listener want to move as much as possible. They’re the type of tracks that are exactly what gives Masters At Work their legendary name – the energy and feeling behind the track is incredible, and can be felt from the time the track starts all the way till the end.
To deliver the final blow, Masters At Work revamp the kicks and add a bouncy bassline in their Bubble Bass mixes.
Groovy, dancey, and catchy through and through, the Bubble Bass Mix and its instrumental counterpart give a more lively take on the track. With a rounded bassline added and an amped-up kick, the feel has changed it to a jam that’s perfect for the lounge. The deeper feel is still retained while the vocals are included as an accent to set the mood, it’s a solid addition to any playlist to help keep you cool during the summer heat.
The range of remixes found within this album speaks to Masters At Work’s talent and their reputation as experts in the art of house music production. Give it a listen because these legends have spun up something magical, you won’t regret it.
