I only noticed recently that most of the tracks are playing much slower than you'd expect. Even at DMT the mix is only around 132bpm, and ends at around 136 even though Energy of Light/Sea Song are normally 140/144bpm.
However Samba is 126 BPM and in this mix it's probably 132-133 BPM.

I just tapped it out and Samba is playing at 128bpm. Speeding up slow records to a traditional trance tempo is normal though, I just haven't witnessed anyone slowing down records so drastically and maintaining such energy. As you have just demonstrated, the tempo of the mix is overall much slower than your brain thinks, which I find interesting if nothing else.
