LE BAIN: It seems you are busier than ever, releasing new tracks with George Clinton and Kendrick Lamar, Adeva, Masters At Work… Is 2015 Louie Vega’s year or is it just a teaser for 2016?
Louie Vega: Oh, this is a teaser, get ready, plenty to come! My new and first ever Louie Vega album, titled Louie Vega Starring is coming February 2016. Also Master At Work's new music is coming next year...monthly releases on Vega records: Anane Vega's Best Of album, a Hardrive EP, and some Louie Vega productions with artists you love!
I read your new album’s concept is to gather 28 songs featuring 28 artists…
I've reached out to many friends, recording them at my studio, Daddy's Workshop, to create an album that contains 28 songs with over 28 artists. We've released a few singles so far: "Dance" by 3 Winans Brothers featuring The Clark sisters, "I Deserve to Breathe" by Louie Vega starring Adeva, and also the album cut, "Ain't that Funkin' Kinda Hard On You" by Funkadelic, which features Kendrick Lamar. Lots of releases coming up this fall and winter with live shows to follow in spring 2016!
