Default Ethnogenesis of the Macedonians?

I found this forum earlier this year and I've been reading a lot of theories on the origins of the Macedonian people and who they were. I've seen theories regarding the original Macedonian tribes, a Brygian origin, as well as a Thracian relation. But perhaps the most interesting one I've seen (several times here) is that the Macedonians were a mix of Brygian speaking groups that united under one banner (Thracians, Paeonians, Illyrians, etc.). Others have also suggested that these ancient peoples, mixed (either completely or just to a degree) with the migrating Slavs/Turkic peoples that arrived in the Balkans. I was hoping to get your guys' opinions on what the ethnogenesis of modern Macedonians entails.
