I started working on this mix at the end of 2008 with the intention of releasing it at the beginning of summer in 2009. I got it pretty close rather quickly but wanted to perfect elements of the mix that aren't in there as it currently plays. Nonetheless, I held onto the idea that I would some day get to bring it to the point I originally envisioned.
After getting my first Apple and finally putting together a somewhat proper studio space to work in (with the help of my amazing friends!), I began work on this mix again. I kept getting hung up on the remix I had created of Enya's "Boadicea" fashioned as a tribute to the Fugees' "Ready or Not." Ultimately, I have not finished that piece of work and may never.
In the meantime, some of my greatest friends gathered in Sunriver for a farewell gathering as two of our friends prepared to journey south. As I thought of them in the late night, I was compelled to send them the mix and at that point I knew the mix was complete.
