this is such a recurring problem (and discussed many times
beforehere) that i'd like to offer space on for
any mp3 audio works that make use of artistic re-use. my
only concern is that of quality. i dont really want to host
absolutely anything, since there is a lot of bad
sample-based music. but the business of curating might be
too big a job. any thoughts anyone?
