Now and Then, Part 1 (Now)
This week’s mix – and the first of the New Year! – is the first in a two-part series entitled Now & Then; this being the “Now” part. The mix consists entirely of modern-day remixes of classic Goa trance tracks, and while some of the originals of these tracks are more “classic” than others, each has stood the test of time and they have as such warranted remixes even 10-12 years later.

It’s always a bit more difficult for me to put together a “planned” mix, it seems, but I wanted to pick tracks that were all classics and all remixed by those other than the original producer. In this I failed on Transwave’s “Land Of Freedom”, of which Deedrah was a member, and Psychaos’ “Chaos To Order”, remixed by Joti himself. As for repeats, I ended up with two GMS- and two Deedrah-remixed tracks, but wanted to stick with them because I think they’re great remixes. To note, “Frankie’s Farm” is actually a remix of the Koxbox track “Electric Brainwash”, found on their Dragon Tales album.
Do these remixes update good, yet dated tracks and make them even better? Or are they blasphemous abominations, defiling the holy originals and killing their cosmic trance dance spirit? I leave this to you, the listener, to decide! 🙂
Please, for the love of all that is right and good in the world, enjoy the mix.
