At the time of writing there had been
11,120 listens on SoundCloud
I’ve had to remix all of the tracks going back to mid January.
The monitoring EQ, unbeknowns to me, had been re-EQ’d for a crappy set of extra bassy DJ headphones by someone who begged me to use my gear.
Thus far I’ve reached back to about March 2015 so you might want to revisit some of those tracks if you thought they sounded like the inside of a bass drum!
Lesson: If someone asks “Can I please please use your gear? Pleeeeeease Mr” Say “NO!”
