- The compilation spans 26 years of material, from early anthems like "Witch Doktor" to more recent commercial hits.
Armand Van Helden is next up for Defected's House Masters retrospective series, due out in early September.
The New York house don produced a number of early and mid-'90s underground anthems: "Witch Doktor," "The Funk Phenomena," "Work Me Gadamit '96"—all of which appear on the compilation. It also includes tracks from groups he was a part of—Banji Boys, Da Mongoloids (alongside Thomas Bangalter)—and a track he produced with grime emcee Dizzee Rascal, plus remixes of DJ Deeon, Pharrell and Sneaker Pimps. Some of the more commercial hits from Duck Sauce, his group with A-Trak, are included as well. It follows previous House Masters entries from Todd Terry, Masters At Work and Frankie Knuckles.
