3.47: Do you get a lot of tracks that you have to choose to upload each day?
A.L: We get a lot of track submissions, but daily uploads means a lot of songs, so sometimes we have to dig around for uploads.

3.47: Has the YouTube policy made it harder for you to keep some tracks on your channel at all?
A.L: Yes, we recently got a copyright strike on our channel from a copyrighted song, so things definitely got harder. We have to keep a close eye on our uploads.
3.47: If you was given the chance to run YouTube what would you change?
A.L: I would have changed back the YouTube layout, because at the moment Google is dominating YouTube.
3.47: You recently done a mix between Bipolar Penguin Music and Arctic Empire, how did it all come about?
A.L: We know each other fairly well, because we have sort of the same music taste. We talked to each other on Facebook, and decided it would be a great idea to join forces together and make mixes, the Chill Federation.
