Mixed Nuts, No Peanuts
When you buy a can of mixed nuts, it’s usually 75% peanuts. Peanuts are fine, don’t get me wrong, but when you get another type of nut in-hand it’s quite exciting, and for some reason seems to be extra tasty. Well, this old-school Goa trance mix is like a can of mixed nuts, but with no peanuts. All exciting, all tasty, all the time.

Another set of tracks I’ve not commonly seen in old-school mixes, this one was put together after tossing a bunch of stuff into the Winamp playlist, listening for a few days while working, and piping the ones that caught my ear into a new playlist. Each track seems to have its own little hook, and for some odd reason the mix as a whole brings to mind the word “underdog”. Maybe this is because – again – these tracks don’t seem to grace old-school Goa mixes very often, and I think they’d do quite well if given the chance to get off the bench and onto the field.
