House Solution presents Masters at Work

(Kenny Dope and Louie Vega)

New Year’s Eve

-Only Sydney appearance

-First Australian tour

-20th Anniversary

Having come full circle, the ‘Social Scene, Clubbing Experience’ has peaked in popular culture. With more significance given to name dropping and pimping Facebook names (strictly for tagging purposes of course), busy scenesters are spotted posing for party snaps and twirling ice cubes with cutesy straws whilst drumming up conversations such as ARE YOU GOING TO ……? DID YOU GO TO….? DID YOU HEAR THE LINE UP FOR…?

The scene has evolved greatly in 30 years, and as much fun as it is has been and will be forever, the time has come to return to “ the experience “.

This New Year’s Eve, Sydney based House Solution has secured the services of one of the most influential and anticipated icons of house music in the world from New York, MASTERS AT WORK (MAW), featuring Little Louie Vega and Kenny “Dope” Gonzalez. The night promises ‘Six Decks, Two Deejays playing Back2Back and One chance to experience!’ Together for the first time in Australia, MAW tours off the back of their 20th anniversary celebrations and shows in Ibiza’s Ushuaia Beach Hotel for Luciano’s residency and the much talked about Carl Cox50th birthday at Space:

“I have been trying to get them to play at Space with me for years” –Cox-

It’s apt that House Solution would champion this special night, as fellow veterans grounded in 40 years experience between them. They have been providing a safe place for their perceptive 25 to 50+ audience (that makes up Sydney’s cultural mix) to come together to interact in a club environment – an experience that starts from the front“door” and culminates on the dance“floor”.

The venue will be transformed into a place of dance with an intelligent and innovative use of audiovisual components, musicians, dancers and Dj’s. Headlining the night will be Masters at Work, who simply shepherded dance music down new paths with their inventive production style and imaginative feel for different musical forms redefining the way we think of music in clubs as they defiantly mix house, hip-hop, funk, disco, latin, afro, jazz – into a universal groove! Their productions, which number in the hundreds, include such a diverse range of artists, Bjork to Donna Summer, Daft Punk to George Benson and Janet Jackson to The Bucketheads and so much more.

Dj’ing with MAW is Antonio Zambarelli who has skilfully guided the development of house music in Sydney over the last 20 years holding the principal residencies at HOME Sydney (1998-9), House Solution Wharf 8 Parties (2000), TANK Nightclub (2001-5) and Zeta Bar (2005-12). The live music will be led by Toño Marquez of Chilean descent. Having recently come off tour with Jessica Mauboy, Marquez is an incredibly talented percussionist who had his first professional gig at the age of 9 at the Basement in Sydney. The dancers will be led by Ben Sofowara from the USA who has travelled the world taking flexibility and dance to groundbreaking levels.
