J'habite en espagne et j'aime vraiment vos mixes, le seul probleme c'est que je vous suit depuis deux ans et malheuresement il y a quelques pods et mixes que j'arrive pas à trouver. Je ne sais pas s'il y une façon de les retrouver et de pas perdre ce que sont en train de sortir. Merci pour tants d'heures de bonne musique...
