Shep Pettibone


Producer, mixer and remixer whose work in the 80s and early 90s has had a lasting impact on dance music. He first came to wide attention with his work with Arthur Baker on Afrika Bambaataa & The Jazzy 5's "Jazzy Sensation". He also worked as an in-house mixer for Prelude Records and his work can be heard on classics like Loleatta Holloway's "Love Sensation". At the same time as his recording career was taking shape, he was also producing innovative 'mastermixes' for KISS FM, New York. These became so popular that Prelude Records even released some of them commercially.

Shep Pettibone was also innovative in his approach to remixing tracks. He would break a track down into its components and then use combine these components into longer, more club-friendly tracks for the dancefloor. He soon became in demand for his remix work and worked on remixes for many well-known acts such as Pet Shop Boys, New Order, Janet Jackson, Cathy Dennis, Madonna and Erasure, helping them achieve club and chart success. He left the music industry in the mid-90s, and is now operating the Empress Hotel in Asbury Park, New Jersey.
