History of the megamix: Cameron Paul Oldschool Medley (Phunkula Edit)

One of the best remix services back in the day was Cameron Paul's Mixx-It. Mixx-it was a DJ only subscription service that ran from 1986 until the mid 90s. Cameron Paul was based in the Bay Area and used to kill it in local clubs and on KMEL with his mixing skills. He also had success in the charts with his remixes, notably Salt'n'Pepa's Push It, which was a global hit. However, Cameron Paul medleys was his best work according to many of his fans. The power mixes and medleys always rocked. Cameron Paul's mixing style was one of the cleanest, smoothest and most musical ever heard. It was always easy to quickly spot when someone else mixed Mixx-It tracks other than Cameron Paul since those mixes were not as high quality.

Here is a real gem from back in the day. A set of Cameron Paul oldschool medleys that have been edited into one long megamix. 100+ tracks in the mix. This has to be one of the best oldschool megamixes ever produced thanks to the skills of Cameron Paul who is now officially the uncrowned king of all oldschool medleys. Hail to the king. I wonder what the man is doing these days? Enjoy.

Holy shit Phunk, damn that DJ made my day.

This is my childhood and musical 'base', totally hit me where I live. So much respect to you for making these available. Your blog should apply for national landmark status. :)

I'm spending the weekend cleaning my apartment, and these tracks are gonna make it happen.

Can't wait to see what you come up with next!
