DJ Step One - Technics & Chill

Back with a new mix for the first of the month, bit of everything on here really, just pulling some records that sounded good in the sunshine over the weekend. I didn't want to label it a 'BBQ mix' because thats what every other DJ on the internet is going to do over the next couple of months (and they will all inevitably be a mix of 90s R&B standards and a couple of G Funk tracks with some Roy Ayers and 'Summer Madness' chucked in). This would please the same demographic those mixes are intended for though, perhaps more so. Basically, you can put it on and enjoy some Herb McGruff and Slick Rick without it bothering your missus too much.

Leena Conquest - Boundaries
Armand Van Helden - Hot Butter
Taana Gardner - Heartbeat
McGruff ft Mase - Harlem World
Sade - Paradise
Troubleneck Brothers - Back To The Hip Hop (Summertime blend)
East Side Hoods - Funky Smile
Keni Burke - Keep Rising To The Top
Leon Haywood - I Wanna Do Something Freaky To You
Masta Ace - Born To Roll (instrumental)
Notorious BIG - Juicy
Mtume - Juicy
Soul II Soul - Keep On Movin
Slick Rick ft Doug E Fresh - Sittin In My Car
Skeme ft Rodney P - UK Bubblers
2Pac & Alton Ellis - Nothin Like Rocksteady (Phatmix bootleg)
Mariah Carey ft The LOX & Mase - Honey (Bad Boy mix)
Change - Lets Go Together
Pete Rock & CL Smooth - Back On The Block
Amerie - 1 Thing (Boom blend)
R Kelly ft Jay Z - Fiesta (remix)
Martine Girault - Revival

The inclusion of Martine Girault at the end serves as a reminder that although she only had that one significant hit (and it wasn't that big a hit really), Revival is a better than anything you'll find in the combined catalogues of Beyonce, Adele and Rihanna. Its flawless and undoubtedly in the OB4ZL non-rap top 5.
