Manchester, an important place in the development of electronica, has had plenty of artists come out of it, so it makes sense to compile some of the city's stars onto one album (not that this hasn't happened before, however: there are plenty of other Manchester-centric collections out there). Destinations du Monde: Manchester, put out by Bar de Lune, while not a comprehensive collection of the scene, does include tracks by artists like Only Child, Mettle Music, Wai Wan, and Paper Music. It's a good set, moving from more chilled-out house to Latin-inspired club tracks, and is a pretty decent introduction to what Manchester has to offer.
