History of the megamix: Cameron Paul Mixx-It Power Mixes


Cameron Paul used to kill it in the 80s in the clubs and on the radio with his mixes. Then there was his subscription service for DJs only Mixx-It releases. It was always a treat to get that latest Mixx-It release in the mail every month. Especially the megamixed bridges that linked together the main remixed tracks. These were edited into longer sets that became the power mixes at the end of each year featuring the freestyle, miami bass and dance tracks that were popular on the Westcoast at the time hyped up with the odd classic TR-808 beat or electro jam. If you can get your filthy paws on any early classic Mixx-It releases, then go for it. They are totally worth it.

Cameron Paul was a true master with his characteristic smooth musical flow mixes that featured not only tape edits but also heavy use of the most interesting sections from 12" instrumental and dub versions. Cameron Paul inspired a whole generation of aspiring DJs around the globe with his master mixes. Enjoy!
