Master Mixes is a remix EP by Duran Duran. This double 12" compilation was released commercially in the United States by Capitol under the production label of Masterdisk Corporation and in Brazil by EMI in 1987.

The track listing for each release differed slightly but featured the same unreleased material, remixes of Notorious album tracks, "Vertigo (Do the Demolition)" and "American Science". The releases close with a megamix entitled "Notoriousaurus Rex".

In time for the US leg of the Strange Behaviour Tour in June and July, Masterdisc released this Master Mixes collection, compiled unused remixes from their 1986 album Notorious, as well as a further mixes of "Skin Trade" and a megamix called "Notoriousaurus Rex".

In 1999, EMI released a collection of remixes under the title Strange Behaviour and included the "American Science (Chemical Reaction Mix)", giving the mix its first truly commercial release. The other remix of "American Science" and the Kurtis Mantronik mixes of "Vertigo" have yet to receive a commercial release. Neither has the "Notoriousaurus Rex (Master Mix)".
