Mark Shreeve (1957 – 2022) was a British electronic music composer best-known for composing "Touch Me (I Want Your Body)" (1986) for Samantha Fox.

After initially releasing his early work on cassette through the label Mirage Records, he went on to sign for the newly formed Jive Electro in the early 1980s, and released the albums Assassin, Legion, and Crash Head.

Shreeve also composed scores or sections of scores for some feature films, recorded a number of library music CDs and wrote the song "Touch Me (I Want Your Body)" (1986) for Samantha Fox, which was released and hit the chart in 1986. He also worked briefly with Christopher Franke of Tangerine Dream and has had some technical association with producer and modular synthesiser expert Ed Buller.

In 1996, Shreeve formed the group Redshift with his brother Julian, James Goddard and Rob Jenkins. The group has recorded nine albums to date and played live in the UK and in all Europe, including one concert made at Jodrell Bank Observatory.
