mysteryjetsI never really knew a whole lot about Mystery Jets. They covered Bloc Party, did a remix of Futureheads’ “Hounds of Love,” got remixed by Erol Alkan and Justice but I don’t think I ever really heard anything more of them. I’m starting to get interested because they’ve got great remixes of their songs. Are the originals as good?

yes! they’re very good, particularly the tracks Young Love, Hand Me Down, and Crosswords

Another brillant track is ‘Flakes’ think it was co-produced or something along those lines by Erol Alkan

Don’t know what you see in the remixes mate, particularly this one (no offence). The band have got two quality albums out there … and only one decent remix of note – Riton extended dub – which crops up on ‘Fabriclive 28 – Evil Nine’ … anything else out there on that wave?

The Mystery Jets. The Mystery Jets.
Their last album, Twenty One, was beautiful, messy, tight, whiny and spectacular. Give it a try.
