Mystery Land

01 Mystery Land (Radio Edit)
02 Trance Piano
03 Kiss The Sound
04 Mystery Land

INFO > The Belgian trio behind this EP may have been inspired by Jam & Spoon’s “Odyssey To Anyoona” while producing the title track. However, “Mystery Land” is certainly a unique classic in its own right, and was heavily played by Oakey back in the day.

While dining out last week, I heard a beatless, ambient version of “Mystery Land” playing over the restaurant’s sound system. I didn’t know that such a mix existed and I can’t track it down online—anyone know where to find that version?
