The fresh sound of 808 State hinted to us stateside that there was something big happening over the ocean. While the methods they employed were not radically different from Front 242 and the EBM scene, there was a totally different vibe in this ‘soulless computer music’ purists were moaning about at the time. Twelve years on, their layered syncopated breakneck rhythms still have the power to rock you, while the spirit that was one of the pioneers of a global dance empire in all its naivete and energy is still in all those tracks you remember, Pacirc, Cubik, Olympic and lots of other nuggets in this compilation you might not remember. Excellent!
