ARTHUR BAKER PRESENTS DANCE MASTERS - The Shep Pettibone Master Mixes Vol 1 Part 1 - Double 180g Clear Vinyl
One of the most successful and celebrated remixers of the 1980s, The SHEP PETTIBONE Master-Mixes Vol One Part One features 16 classic tracks compiled and sequenced by Wayne Dickson (BBR/Groove Line Records) pressed on 2 x 180g Clear Vinyl.
Demon is proud to present a new DANCE MASTERS series hosted by Arthur Baker, opening with a new collection of 12” and 7” remixes by the legendary Shep Pettibone.
What Shep Pettibone had that most other mixers did not, was a true radio sensibility. He inherently knew what would work on the airwaves, but was equally comfortable in a club setting, as a DJ and a fan, so he knew what worked both on the dance floor and on radio. That was a deadly combination. Shep was also very open to all types of music and acts. From UK alternative sounds to NYC street sounds. From campy pop to gospel disco and electro R&B, Shep nailed them all and brought his expert sheen and sense of excitement to each of them. I am incredibly proud to open the Dance Masters series with this collection of some of his best work. - ARTHUR BAKER
