What are some good synthwave/outrun/retrowave/whatever compilations that are not Valerie & Friends (because I have that one)?

I know I can go poking around in /r/outrun forever but I'm lazy and want someone else to do the work for me.

You may have seen this FPP already, but it seemed worth mentioning.

I was just sent this Dynatron album, and I think it fits your bill. It's retro-y, but space-oriented. A bit darker and higher-energy, but still all synth: Carpenter Brut.

Well, based on listening to some of Valerie and Friends, I suspect you'd like Ladyhawke.

Jackson and His Computer Band might push your buttons. G.I. Jane and Dead Living Things and actually it looks like every track from that album are on YouTube.

(Edit: sorry, I missed the compilations aspect before responding)
