ARTHUR BAKER PRESENTS DANCE MASTERS: The SHEP PETTIBONE MASTER-MIXES Arthur Baker Presents Dance Masters: The Shep Pettibone Master-Mixes is the first in a series of brand new series which opens with a new collection of 12” and 7” remixes by the man who shaped the sound of the dancefloor in the 1980s, Shep Pettibone.

This collection of Shep’s remixes launches Arthur Baker‘s Dance Masters, a series that will celebrate the heritage of the great dance remixes of the 20th century.

This first-ever collection of one of the most successful and celebrated remixers features 46 tracks compiled and sequenced by Wayne Dickson (BBR/Groove Line Records) in conjunction with series curator Arthur Baker; this collection highlights some of the biggest acts of the 80s as well as underground club acts. Some of these remixes are incredibly rare, and some of them are making their CD debut.

The set is presented as 4 CDs, plus a 32-page book. The book includes a foreword written by Baker, an extended quote from Neil Tennant and a fan essay written by Billboard dance columnist Bill Coleman which features quotes from the likes of John Taylor, Andy Bell, Gloria Estefan and Cyndi Lauper.

The set also includes track-by-track annotations from the likes of DJs Danny Krivit, Lenny Fontana and Colin Curtis, along with artists such as Randy Muller (Skyy) and Richie Weeks (The Jammers/Weeks and Co).

Arthur Baker: “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.”

Featuring a list of some of the biggest and most diverse artists of the 1980s, including Whitney Houston, George Michael, Pet Shop Boys, Pointer Sisters, Run-DMC, Kim Wilde Lionel Richie, Depeche Mode and New Order, Arthur Baker Presents Dance Masters: The Shep Pettibone Master-Mixes is a unique collection of some of the most exciting records of the decade.
