DJ Step One 'Windows Down'
Summer has started to appear in the UK over the last few weeks, although for how long is anyone's guess. With that in mind I made this mix for driving around on those precious sunny days (last summer was pretty lame here).
I originally intended it to be 100% car-related tracks but there ended up being too much of the New Jersey Drive soundtrack on there, and alot of southern stuff about candy paint, 24" rims and the like, which isnt really what I was going for. Anyway, its turned out pretty well with a nice summer vibe to it. Hope you like it.

Theres a really good interview with Stretch Armstrong by DJ Eli over at the Turntable Lab blog.
Stretch speaks on coming up as a DJ in NYC, his legendary show on WKCR with Bobbito, and being offered $500 for an acetate of the Beatnuts remix of Mobb Deep's 'Shook Ones pt 1' (which is sure to get the collectors going crazy!)
