Timmy Regisford is simply put, one of the great legends of dance music. The inception of his internationally acclaimed Club Shelter parties in NYC since 1991 helped pioneer the soulful house music sound that has shaped the face of house music today.
Timmy Regisford is known for his brand of soulful dance music. He started in 1985 at the highly rated radio station WBLS in New York City, where he worked as Assistant Music Director, later being promoted to Music Director of the station.
Timmy Regisford is as much of a miracle as he is a marathon man. Born in Trinidad and raised in New York City, Regisford stems directly from Larry Levan’s Paradise Garage school of dance and house music with an emphasis on songs and tracks to lead you there.
Being a DJ himself and working for WBLS and being schooled by celebrated legendary radio jock Frankie Crocker, Timmy Regisford learned the ropes of the music business in one of its hit centers. Together with partner Boyd Jarvis he recorded radio shows that are now the stuff of legend, created projects like Visual and Circuit, remixed Shannon, Colonel Abrams and Blaze as well as winning laurels as one of NYC’s most consistent and popular disc jockeys. Next, to his day job as head of A&R for labels like Atlantic, MCA, Motown, and Dreamworks, he spent his nights at the helm of Manhattan’s highly acclaimed Club Shelter – playing twelve hours and programming his impeccable sets with a broad range of music.
There is no question that Timmy has made great and strong measurable impact with his talent and there is no question that he will continue with his creative musical energy and passion in the future.
