Pointer Sisters - Goldmine (The Mixdown Refix)

Pointer Sisters - Goldmine (The Mixdown Refix) by Jules Juke

It's really no secret that I love dance music from the 80's - so many timeless disco, funk, and soul tracks were revolving this earth before I was even born! During the mid-80s The Pointer Sisters were at the height of their career, releasing classics like "Dare Me" and "I'm So Excited." I always see remixes and reworks of these songs, but never "Goldmine," which is such a shame cause I think it can hold its own against its more well known brethren. But now you have no excuse not to drop some Pointer Sisters in your 80s sets, as this refix is plenty good for the dancefloor! 

Eli Escobar - Shoulda Let You Go (The Mixdown Moombahton Edit)

Eli Escobar's rework of Keyshia's "Shoulda Let You Go" is so incredibly sexy! Its got this moody, deep house, tropical r&b vibe that makes me want to turn it into sweaty, grinding moombahton! If you like your moombahton with soul, then this is the perfect smanger to unleash at your next underground house party!

Mixdown 018

Sketch Pad
Ghettofunk/Nu Disco/Hip-Hop/House/Mashup

What started off as a Halloween mix was quickly abandoned for a ghettofunk infused, hip-hop heavy, nu disco groovin', clusterfuck. Pretty much everything except for the last track is mashed or re-edited beyond the original sound - and all done live too. I find myself getting sick and tried of all the one-dimensional mixtapes that just blend other people's music without doing anything innovative. This is my answer to that monotony.

Lords of the Underground - Psycho (Acapella)
Lostprophets - We Are Godzilla, You Are Japan
House of Pain - Jump Around

Needs More Funk

Among the litter of half schemed mixtapes, this little funk-infused, genre-hopping, dancefloor killer escapes from the unfinished masses. I'm quite happy how it turned out - especially the epic Russ Chimes pre-closer to stomping ghettofunk Rory Lyons edit! Inspired by Midnight Star and the Futurecop! vs 90's RnB mixtape from 2009.
