This was the mix the re-got me into making mixes. My best friend had moved away to Denver the previous year, and I planned to visit him during the summer of 2009. We're both pretty steeped in music, so I wanted to make him a mix of everything new I was listening to at the time. I made sure to include a little of everything from my known stable of preferred genres: pop punk, hip hop, and electronic. At the time, I was also starting to get heavily into gaming soundtracks, which is why I chose to include cuts from games like Uncharted: Drake's Fortune (the El Dorado remix), Assassin's Creed (Flight Through Jerusalem), and Battlefield: Bad Company (Battlefield Theme).

Many of my favorite artists are featured on this mix (Fall Out Boy, Goodnight Sunrise, The Roots, Little Brother), but got a bit caught up in the "make it new" aspect, and included several tracks from acts that I'm only partially into at best (Valencia, Destiny Worldwide).

Still, I'm very satisfied with this mix, if only because of how vividly I can recall the drive down to Denver. It was never meant to relaunch the Testermix brand, but in retrospect, this little CD lead to many others.
