Cheers mate. Read that now, fascinating stuff. From the picture he seemed like one us typical UK cul-de-sac suburban kids in front of their parents stereo hooked on late night hip hop radio and recording stuff. Those were the days...

I've spent my life trying to prove to the Musicians Union who expelled me in 1964 because I was playing records when the band I sang with had a break. DMC was born on that backdraft. How I would have loved to see Paul M do his 'pause mix' during that MU meeting. My case would have been made.
DMC pays homage to our lost soldier.

PS Look out for D-Lux Radio launching Jan 1st - lots of DMC mixes around midnight seven nights a week.

Only REAL DJ'z know how complex this technic is and Paul's passion for Hiphop makes him an incredible Pause DJ because it takes so much patience percission and persistence to accomplish this impeccable seemless mix pause tape production I know because I was nice with this as well and he would have been a Super producer and I say super producer because this skill is the superhighway to Superproducer Status there would have been nothing that would have stopped him from being one DJ/ Producer to reckon with NUFF SAID !!!!! RIP MY FELLOW DJ May your efforts and contribution to our Hiphop legacy LIVE ON from The Original DJ SPINDARELLA from Salt n Pepa 85" I'll take your man ", my mic sounds nice, Tramp , definately a show stoppa and I'll keep PUSHIN it - Hiphop FO-EVA!!!🙏🏽👑🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥👊🏽

Wow...Talking about a time warp....This is a hard mix with vinyl but with pause mixing...Forget about it...Incredible..

Amazing, obviously very talented, I also started doing cassette pause button mixes but nothing as creative as this, I don't even know how he did it other than the fact that it sounds like he did take the time to BPM the tracks and has the fastest ones at the end - - just shows that you don't need a ton of equipment to make something really special, talent is the most important thing :)

Classic mix. Not hear this for years! Thanks for posting this Tony (first heard you on Stu Allan too!) Paul Mulhearn was a massive influence on my own early pause tapes.

Just listened again and it's still amazes me. All beat mixed perfectly and imaginatively beyond belief. How good would he have become with today's technology. Every time I listen it still blows my mind. Total respect. Mr Spin thanks for sharing this as I taped over my copy.

Later this year I am doing a feature on Paul to celebrate this amazing mix and how we all still wish he was still with us.

Top mix,pause buttons,wow it was an art to do this ,so many good tunes,really took me back to the good old days ..

The technique was verging on the impossible and Paul showed his class beat matching using pause buttons, I go and say that is harder than Turntables...He made this with a Double tape deck hifi system plugged into a ghettoblaster, carefully working out which tracks and order. He used to record from one tape out into the ghettoblaster to make the loops and then keep a master of the mix. With this method you end up with dozens of tapes for one mix...I still have mine. The Paul Mulhearn Respect the Tape Architect feature show will be available later this year
