Hi Marc, the link seems incorrect — “the track now found”, it says. Probably, you marked the mix as a private? In this case, the link should include several digits in the end.


Hey Daniel sorry about this.Pls try this link!
And thanks for the awesome oppertunity to feature on your show:)

Daniel Lesden

Thanks for the updated link! However, the mix bitrate is 160 kbps. Please update it to 320 kbps to match the rules. On Soundcloud, you can replace file without changing that link.


Duh silly Me...Ok so i changed it so this should be ok i hope?

Here is the new link just incase. thank you:)

Daniel Lesden

Yep, it’s good now. Cheers!
