Release Review

mastersystem - Old Team (Mogwai Remix)

Mogwai's remix of Mastersystem – a new collaboration featuring members Frightened Rabbit, Minor Victories, and Editors – tweaks the emotions of the original substantially. Scott Hutchinson's unique Glasweigan lilt, perfectly suited to both Frightened Rabbic's cathartic anthems and the slightly grungier aggression of Mastersystem, is here soaked in shoegaze electronics, softening the familiar vein of his lyrics, 'But the days when we were full of it have died'. The choice of Mogwai, possibly Glasgow's most famous musical prodigy, as remix partners is a sound one.

Masterststem's debut album 'Dance Music' is released on April 6 on Physical Education Recordings.
