Kenny "Dope" Gonzalez


Kenny "Dope" Gonzalez (born July 6, 1970) is an American record producer and disc jockey. He is also one half of the Masters at Work musical production team with Little Louie Vega.

Gonzalez started his DJ career in 1985 organizing neighborhood block parties in his home of Brooklyn, New York, with his then musical partner, Mike Delgado. Under the Masters at Work moniker, the parties became quite successful and attracted Todd Terry who later borrowed the group's name for two record releases. Terry returned the favor at a later date when he loaned Gonzalez a drum machine, which began his interest in producing beats. Kenny Dope was one of the DJ's for the group KAOS whose 1988 album "Court's In Session" featured production by Todd Terry.
