The SURFING ON A ROCKET EP might be slightly mislabeled, since it's more of a remix single than anything else. Still with the muezzin-like vocals that circle the start of Nomo Heroes remix of the title track, it's still a good trip. The Juan McLean amp up the bass on their mix, and Joakim brings a thudding house feel to bear. The rap of Mark Ronson's version of "Alpha Beta Gaga" doesn't do too much besides muddle the sound, but luckily on his "Instrumental Mix," it focuses more on the beats and the sitar-like background. Jackson, on the other hand, gives that track a jittery feel, one that almost mocks the whistling melody. But the unreleased track, "Easy Going Woman" has beauty to spare. That's the track that'll send you into outer space.

The Joakim remix is really good. One of the best remixes of an Air song (along with The Hacker remix of 'Don't Be Light'). A good drum beat, the vocals through a vocoder focused on the rythm. Then in the middle it gets "spacy" and the female voice (normally the backingvocal) gets up in front, and a Kraftwerk-like bass (à la 'Autobahn') enters . Impressive!
