This handsomely designed 808 State compilation is a reminder of the Manchester dance music pioneers’ elasticity, from ambient exotica of “Pacific State” and brutal techno of “Timebomb” to collaborations with Björk and Elbow’s Guy Garvey. There are several first-rate remixes too, including Aphex Twin’s pulverising version of “Flow Coma” and Monkey Mafia’s look back at chunky acid house of “Cübik”.
