General Mix #10 is one of my personal favorite mixes from over the years, and serves as a turning point for me in mix composition. Instead of just throwing in as many songs as I could, I started to care about the flow of the mix, the mood and feelings each one evoked, and tried to create a complimentary experience. It’s not perfect, but it was a BIG step in the right direction for me.

There are too many tracks in there for it’s own good, and the flow kind of breaks down by the end, however there still isn’t a track I’d take out at this point. Going from Grew Up Fast to Cinnamon Girl is still one of my favorite pairings, same for Something Went Wrong to The Beehive State. #10 also showcases were my my musical tastes started to branch out to more international and more sub-culture bands.
