    Great mix, Jefre! Where is the Shiv Kumar Sharma piece taken from?

    Probably one of the best sounding records I’ve heard from him.Fantastic recording quality.

    Glad you enjoy!

    Nice mix–thanks for sharing.

    Just a word of caution, though : sendspace popped an ad up that tried to force-download a binary file of some sort (not the zip file you posted). You may want to avoid sendspace in the future, as this isn’t the first sketchy thing I’ve found associated with them.
