The victory lap on a Taun Taun, passin’ you sucker ducks on land speeders… DJ Sheep has just finished doing this mix, and describes the feel as entering the DMC for two hours straight, his brain is spent and he is ready for that blunt. Here is what DJ Sheep had to say about the Winter Bluntz Trilogy: “My mind is erratically spontaneous and crazy right now; I dug super deep for the final mix of Winter; maybe even Bulletproof status.
