This is SUCH a pleasure to mix! Its not only a great song, but I adore cancion Latin ) (y Latina)! Years ago I had the pleasure of being an assistant engineer on a project for SeIena (rest in peace) and then re fell in LOVE with Latin as a Zumba Fitness instructor, and my love for it grows and grows como la fleur. There is a new mixing contest, but the project subject is not pleasant to me. El Loco... Muchas gracias mi amigo! More por favor! I have learned much from your video - it is a pleasure to work with you (Although I use Pro Tools LoL) Adios y muchas gracias
