If this all happens and I actually get to own this record then it really will be the most special vinyl in my collection.

I must admit, I'd never really taken the time to listen to much, if any, of his music before, I guess mainly because I don't listen to a lot of dnb these days anyway and I dunno, just never really listen to a lot of the dnb that gets posted on here full stop really.
 
However, actually going through his Soundcloud now and listening to his tunes, he actually was a really talented producer.  I mean to my untrained ear, a lot of his tunes sound polished and like something that would come out on a label etc.  I guess I shouldn't be surprised given how creative he was and how good his art is, but some of these tunes are wicked.  A lot of variety between what he did, some of them aren't to my particular taste from what I would listen to normally, but I can appreciate that he was obviously very talented and more importantly, he made use of his talents by making tunes, producing art etc.  So many people have these talents and waste them, he actively enjoyed creating art, music, etc.  And this will be his legacy.
 
Stop the World is an absolute banger btw, would nice up the dance neatly.

This is quite tough to choose. There are a lot of different styles.
There are tunes I could easily see someone like Doc Scott or Goldie dropping in their sets. I voted Tiger System but was hard to decide between:
 
Stop The World
War Drum
Tiger System
The Four Stages Of War
 
Courage and Drifting Apart are top choices as they have quite a different vibe. The four tunes above are what I think of as the more "technical / Metalheadz-sy" kinda vibes. They sound very weighty and polished on my studio speakers.
 
I think one or two of those tunes along with Courage and Drifting Apart would really represent his different styles and would make a wicked vinyl release. Just my two cents.

I love Ride in the Neon Sun, lovely contrast to Courage. 
 
Tiger System is a banger but it's already out?

Under a fallen sky
The four stages of war
Stop the world
 
Any of these. Shame it takes for someone to pass for people (including me) to realise the talent that others possess.
 
Will purchase regardless

Really enjoyed listening to all these. Hard to narrow it down to a few but I think these are top.
 
A Ride in the Neon Sun
Drifting Apart
Secret Pattern
Spirit Signals
The Last Days
 
As Illplay said will purchase whichever get put on!

I took the time to listen to all of his work for the first time on Friday and I was pleasantly surprised at what I was hearing.

The two strongest ones for me are; 'Aestas' and 'The Four Stages Of War'. I'm annoyed that it's taken his passing for me to pay attention to his work.

Completely agree and not only for the warm memories of Ikos and the music/art he has left behind, but the shared collective experience of forum coming together to help make a very unique and special vinyl (well mainly big up to Law and Subsurface - well impressed and well done guys).

So many of his tunes are worthy of being pressed/released.  I'm sure many of us would happily buy an 10 Vinyl box-set LP of his work!

Ok so I say we go for a 4 track EP, given we can have all 4 tracks mastered by Beau Thomas. I voted for The Four Stages Of War because it sounds like Drifting Apart is a certainty anyway. The Four Stages of War gets in because it makes me want to go and punch Lenny in the back of the head, which I never thought IKOS capable of.
 
Courage
The Four Stages Of War
Drifting Apart
Shadows Prove Light

Yep, I'd go with that.
 
Btw, is Courage a finished track? There is no second drop and it seems to just tail off.
