Biography

Peter Phillips, 21 June 1970, the Bronx, New York City, New York, USA. One of rap music’s most respected producers, Mount Vernon, New York, USA-based Pete Rock was introduced to the world via Marley Marl’s WBLS show in 1989. He has since gone on to work with everyone from forerunners Heavy D (his cousin), Slick Rick, EPMD and Run-DMC (including their first single, ‘Down With The King’), to later talents in the shape of Lords Of The Underground (actually offering vocals on their ‘Flow On’), Nas and K-Solo. Other projects include his soundtrack work on Who’s The Man and Menace II Society. His remix roster is almost as impressive, with engagements with Brand Nubian, Public Enemy, House Of Pain, Das EFX, Father and non-rap artists like Shabba Ranks and Johnny Gill. He also put together the Untouchables producer network/umbrella organisation for the activities of himself and co-conspirators Eddie F, Dave Hall and Nevelle Hodge.
