I got suspicious about the whole e-mail setup, and I've never received this exact kind of notification. When I hover my mouse over the links it links to "http://mandrillapp.com/track/click.. and so on). I haven't clicked any of these, and I've logged on to Soundcloud to check if those followers has uploaded the track that the e-mail said. And guess what? Nope.

DO NOT click on any links if you receive these e-mails. You probably will get infected.
