My EP is finally finished! (The Black Plaid EP)

My first EP is finally finished! I'm calling it Black Plaid, and it's pretty much the first half of the (free) album I'll be releasing sometime next year. It's a collection of mashups, experiments and a few original compositions. Download it here:

Tracks and List of Samples
