The Defected In The House series is really hot right now, breathing some much-needed energy into the stagnating house mix CD format. Masters at Work are icons of the genre, and as producers have pretty much defined the Afro-Latin vocal house sound. This set follows the format set by the previous In The House compilations: two mix CDs and a third bonus CD featuring a CD-ROM portion (does anyone actually like these?) and six classic M.A.W. productions. The two mix CDs offer an eclectic journey through house classics, hot new tracks and some expert combinations of well-known a cappellas and instrumental dubs. It stirs up lots of great memories, and also makes it look like the future of house may be brighter than it seems right now.
