(Recreated) holds 14 tracks chosen by co-founder Steve Beckett rounding out the collection with tracks from Born Ruffians and Hudson Mohawke. If there is an electronic music fan on your list this year, this compilation is a no brainer. If you happen to know an electronic music dabbler, this set will make a solid gift of reference.
