This mix was from around 2015, though I'm not 100% certain on that, it won't be far off. I had been asked to provide a mix for a radio station, and when I submitted it to them they decided they didn't want to use it. I'm not sure why, no explanation was given. I actually really loved the flow of this mix myself, so it was a bit of a kick in the teeth. Not to mention that life had been really starting to get on top of me around the same time, and I'm not sure it's ever really got back on track from here (or a year or two before) to be truthful.

Anyway, the title comes from a combination of the mix being rejected and how I felt more generally. I thought an abstract photo of my face, taken after a long night dealing with care issues at the hospital would be a perfect accompaniment, though looking back perhaps not. I don't dislike the concept enough to change it though because it does reflect a period of my life and that's no bad thing to document in my own way. Somewhat ironically, though these things don't matter to me at all, this mix reached number 1 on the weekly chart on Hearthis.
