A DJ’s DJ: Passing of Pioneering SF Mix DJ Cameron Paul Mourned By Generations of Bay Area DJs That He Paved The Way For

Posted by Billyjam, March 28, 2018 04:32pm | Post a Comment
Cameron Paul

Pioneering San Francisco mix master Cameron Paul was a DJ’s DJ and a Bay Area legend. Hence why news of his passing Tuesday night from cancer (reportedly aged 60) has resulted in mass mourning on social media by anyone into beat music who came up in the Bay in the 80's, especially the generations of Bay Area DJs he paved the way for. The San Francisco born and raised DJ, who began DJing in 1977 at age 20 with his first gig at a club on Broadway, was ubiquitous in the 1980's Bay Area with his trailblazing quick mixes heard by spellbound radio listeners on KSOL in the early 80's and on KMEL in the late 80's.

Widely considered "the best DJ in San Francisco" Paul routinely packed the dance floors of San Francisco clubs like Studio West (where aspiring DJs would not dance but be perched at a high vantage point to study his every move) and City Nights in San Francisco's South of Market where his supercharged live weekend sets were simulcast on the radio.

Cameron Paul's popularity was by no means limited to the Bay in the 80's. All over the world he simultaneously built a following among DJs and record collectors with his legendary remixes such as his Gold Record winning remix of Salt-N-Pepa's "Push It" and his numerous remixes released on his MIXX-IT label such as "In The Mixx 86." Some of that record is heard below along with "Sexy Dancer" and "This is A Test" - that were released on Tandem Records. Most of his records are hard to find because they were limited pressing, promo-only for DJs featuring remixes of popular club tracks. Many were also official commercial releases: remixes and original tracks. One of my most treasured records by Cameron Paul is his 1987 12" via Oak Lawn Records: "C.C.C.P. American Soviets (The Cameron Paul Remix)." In the 80's and well into the 90's the ever prolific Cameron Paul released a string of DJ tailored beats and breaks records like his "Ultimate DJ Weapon" volume pictured above.

Tom Misch What's In My Bag? Amoeba Music

British singer/songwriter, producer, and DJ Tom Misch went shopping at Amoeba Hollywood recently and shared some of his favorite albums with us in our latest What's In My Bag? episode. "This is the first record I heard of John Mayer," he said of the 2006 album Continuum, "and it completely changed my musical career." Misch goes on to describe how Mayer influenced his own guitar playing. "I started playing guitar -- well, trying to play guitar like him -- and that's where kind of everything changed for me." 

While still in school, Misch began making hip-hop beats inspired by J. Dilla. He started posting them online in 2012 where they were discovered and sampled by up-and-coming rappers. He collaborated Tom Misch Geography with singer/songwriter Carmody for her Out to Sea EP in 2014. Next he released Beat Tape 1 and Beat Tape 2; the former featured a track called "Dilla Love," which received a nod from the late producer's mother. The Reverie EP followed in 2016.
