INSTRUCTIONS FOR DOWNLOADING FROM
MIXX-IT.COM


As promised we have posted some tracks on Mixx-It . We're still working out some of the details but we'll be refining the download procedure in the near future, including track lists.

I'm sure some of you may not be aware of how to download certain types of files without it opening a page in your browser. For instance if you just normally click on the "Push It" link, it'll open a page with a Quicktime player and may or may not start playing "Push It". To download the mp3 file to your computer, in Internet Explorer right click the link and select "Save target as...". In Firefox, right click the link and select "Save link as.."

Some files are compressed in the RAR format. To access the mp3 files in a compressed file you need to extract them first with a utility called WinRAR. It's free to use for simple extractions. In the future we hope to offer files that are self extracting so all you need to do is download and play them. We wanted to get these online for you as fast as possible.

We're also planning a separate page for downloads that'll have all track info like title, artist, time and BPM. Untill then here's what's available now on Mixx-It:

"Push It" - Salt n Pepa - This is an alternate version that I produced at the same time I did the one that was released. I thought I had scrapped this version but I found it several years later.

Two rare segments from my KMEL mix show. Each one is about 15 minutes long. I don't have the track listings for those right now.

Mixx-It Issue #1 contains:
"In the Mixx '86" - Various Artists - 16:00 - A medley of most of the dance hits of 1986.
"Twenty Four/Seven" - 911 - 08:20 - This was a big hit in the San Francisco Bay Area.
"Electric Cafe" - Kraftwerk - 05:58

Hello Cameron:

I am ecstatic that you have decided to make a return in earnest to the scene. My name is Andrew Knyte, creator of NJS4E - a website that pays respect to what we've termed the "New Jack Era" - 1987-1992, but also celebrates the 'Soul of Urban Music from the Past, Present, and Future'. As anyone at the site knows, KMEL San Francisco, particularly between 1987 and 1992 to me represents the best radio station that ever was. You were a HUGE part of that story and I am honored to be able to communicate with you. It is my hope to spotlight your work and website at NJS4E moving forward, because our online community would CERTAINLY be interested in your work and your story.

I would like to invite you to join our forum at http://www.njs4e.com/forum to introduce yourself...these people are true music afficionadoes who will literally stumble over themselves to learn more about you. A person who comes to mind right away is a music critic there named Tim Partridge out of Oxford. I also wanted to mention a DJ who passed several years ago named Mark Christopher who I had the pleasure of knowing. He considered you his hero, and we bonded while I worked at KZQZ-FM San Francisco talking about you. I sincerely hope you can feel the waves of enthusiasm that are coming off me as I write this.

Finally, I think joining a site like Myspace could also be helpful in your future endeavors. At any rate, please know that you have a dedicated reader of your blogs in me. I've read all your posts with great interest, and look forward to keeping up.

This music thing. Such an amazing and enjoyable thing, isn't it?

Respectfully yours,

Andrew Knyte

Cameron,
I am sorry to bother you but I had a friend that was a huge fan of yours and was a DJ in the late 80's (minor parties but always inspired for more) and he used to play a 12" of yours that he got as a DJ. It was a 12" DJ only album (that's what he told me) :) that had a Prince 15 minute mega medley on it along with Amy Stewarts "Knock on Wood" I was hoping you could tell me where I could get that album or at least that side of it.

My friend Anthony died of AIDS about 10 years ago and I used to listen to that side (he put it on a tape for me) in my toughest times to make me smile.

My email address is light386@hotmail.com if you can help me out.

Thank you for the music you have created and I hope you much success in the future.

Said Tiger: People can say whatever they want. resorts At the PGA Merchandise Show last month, TaylorMade showed two new products: the r7 SuperQuad, a driver with a 460-cubic-centimeter head and four movable weights, and the Burner, another 460cc driver that's shaped like a bullet and has no movable weights. I think Tiger has earned the right to skip any tournament, no questions asked. In golf you need all 10 fingers, and you need your back.

Dude I remember your mixes being played on the Toronto community radio station, where every week I'd hold the radio just right to get reception and waited to hit that record button!

I do remember your name back then, all the DJ's had your mixes if they were good.

Thanks for the blog and history - you're in there with all my fave originators! Thanks for bringing the music back in the day when freestyle & hiphop were still classified as 'funk'.

Hope all goes well with you & new endeavors.

Peace!

Cameron ALL I can say is your are the DJ I will never forgot. I remember just waiting to hear your mixes day in the day when you were still with KMEL your were the man on the ones an twos. I could remember thinking how in the F--K did he do that your transformer scratch was ILL to say the least. I can't wait to download your stuff as I had most of it on vinyl but lost it over the years. I wish you the best.
