SS are one of the busiest in the circuit. Rightfully so. Sometimes my head spins seeing their concert calendar. One show in Delhi, next in Calcutta, next in Dubai, next in Melbourne. At times there are 10-11 shows in a month, all over the place.
I am little envious of these guys, when he says we are always in vacation mode. When you love your work that much, you don't have to work at all. Good on him.

@sudeepaudio Thank you for sharing us with this one. Waiting for more episodes.
I have a request to you. Can you please share with us Dil Diyaan Gallan Mixing..esp the recording and mixing chain for Atif's vocals, and it's FX. To my ears this is one of the best mix I have heard in a long time.
Can't ask any one else..
