I think they sent such a low quality versions to ensure people are still not able to play it and you need to visit their shows to hear it. If you’re putting a 160 kbps track on in a track..well that’s just sad.

Well I can kind of understand Steve's reluctance to give out the mp3 file with 320 kpbs. Not that it's a good high quality version, but it's good enough for the "black" market, by which I mean bootleggers who'll use bootlegs of new releases for linkbaiting and gaining some little amount of google ad revenue or whatever their site's endgoal is.

And don't we know Steve hates piracy with a passion. If anyone remembers his discussions (rants and lots of cussing, basically) back in the day (like around 2006) on his blogspot account--or maybe it was some other blog platform--and his myspace page? I was just facepalming because he seemed to confront pirates multiple times and got frustrated with them. I think in those moments his real passion and angst came through. Definitely some strong moments.

Kind of hilarious with Hardwell and his big bootleg pack for the 300,000 facebook likes and then Axwell and Sebastian Ingrosso getting pissed off. Imo, rightly so. Plus, Hardwell basically only could make a name for himself because of his name. And interesting to see what mp3 files are worth to one person and what actual work / goodwill it represents for others.

I guess Steve didn't say a word about Hardwell's bootlegs because back in 2009 he made a mashup of Show Me Love and Be which they later re-recorded with new vocals which made a huge success for Steve and Luke

Oh, I never knew that song. :o Sounds WAY better than H8ters.

I think H8ters has quite a different flavor to it, the saws sound a little bit-ish different imo. I don't like the sound of it that much, I don't really know why exactly. Guess they rebuilt it? Or bought off of Third Party maybe and then clicked around in the details?
