4 Satin is Mogwai's debut EP. It features three tracks, "Superheroes of BMX" (recorded at MCM Studios in Hamilton, Scotland, and produced by Andy Miller), "Now You're Taken" (recorded at Chamber Studio in Edinburgh, Scotland, produced by Jamie Harley, and featuring vocals by Aidan Moffat), and "Stereodee" (also recorded at MCM Studios, but produced by Paul Savage). All three tracks later appeared on the 2000 compilation album, EP+6. A US mispress of 4 Satin was released, where the wrong master tape was used. It features an alternative mix of "Stereodee", and otherwise-unavailable track "Guardians of Space". The track listing on the sleeve was also incorrect, although later pressings were corrected.
All songs were written by Mogwai, except "Now You're Taken", lyrics and vocals by Aidan Moffat.
