Recommended Posts

If Max Martin is to The Hit maker behind Britney spears and teen pop.


The same can be said for Pete Waterman.


Through his hit factory..


You had bananarama, Rick astley, Jason Donavan and his two biggest acts. 


Kylie minogue and Steps. 


Pete was considered the hottest producer in pop Music for the UK..


Everybody wanted to work with him 


Even instinct said he just didn't aim for pop radio, his team did their own remixes, so when DNA announced they are the official remix of Shocked by Kylie minogue, it was like what he relented power to someone else for once. 


He was that in demand as a producer because he not only did dance but tracks like Never gonna give you up by Rick astley and Word is out by Kylie minogue from 1991's underrated let's get to it, her only PWL album to actually flop in terms of her era with that label actually proved he understood r&b quite well. 


With the freestyle and the new jack swing of both tracks. 





He understood that sometimes a single needs a delay so a new mix could be created and case in point the duet of Kylie and Jason's Especially for you had a different mix ready to ship, but he knew he could improve the Music causing a two week delay, but he was right.  


The public lapped it up and in 2015 the original mix became available and it was very lackluster to the one that was issued.
