The've had the good sense not to touch "Pacific State" - it's already had more goes at it than Tori Black - and some tracks like "Firecracker" have just been tweaked enough to keep them lively; the rehash of "In Yer Face" ain't nothing too special, but "Cobra Bora" and "Cübik" have had the full benefit of remix love bestowed upon them and the results are good. "Cobra Bora" keeps the same structure as the original but reworks the phrases - I really like it.
There's even a few new tracks - "Spanish Ice" is pretty good vintage 808 State. Oh, and for those who missed it, there is Aphex Twin's 2001 rework of "Flow Coma": relentless acid house to fuck you up proper.
You can read a review and preview tracks here, but I'm not linking any downloads for something that just got released. There's also another remix of "Cübik" you can download for free from 808 State's own site here.
