Cyberia 3


The Story

"Welcome, stranger!
If you like extended, low-frequency response at high sound pressure levels, then you will be in for an exciting and enjoyable ride. However, if you are uncomfortable with bass and do not wish to explore the boundaries of your audio system, then leave now -- before the exits are sealed."

Cyberia had become a quasi-religious way of life -- far more than just a maudlin frame of mind or a one-way trip through an imaginary escape hatch out of the harshness of the material world.

Cyberia became real.

We could see it through the black light and smell it through bubblegum-flavoured smoke. We could touch it and taste it and hold it and fuck it. It was the time when the Matrix became more than just William Gibson's terrifying nightmare, the time of an additional workload and minions, when Garbage came to town, and when being commissioned by professionals in the business resulted in an unrelated "series of discs to take your clothes off to".

Wielding this power and popularity with condescending ease, those recurring visits to Cyberia were far more than the mere valve that vents personal frustration as it gradually replaced the ordinary, civilian world -- which was left in the wake of leaded exhaust fumes as many thousands of kilometres were carved on asphalt tracks between the stations of a hectic schedule and transformed into the imaginary home away from the regular abode where one would tend to hygienic matters and store their garb.

That was 15 Minutes.

Blurb: "Following the surprising success of Cyberia and Cyberia 2.01, we proudly present Cyberia 3 to complement the previous two. We originally intended to compile this album at a much later stage, but when we realised what excellent music had suddenly hit the scene - we just couldn't fucking resist! Again, our mixing style has changed a bit, yet we are constantly learning and improving. Many thanks go to another unnamed DJ for supplying most of the music and much of the inspiration, and Oh! Lest we forget, Miss P. for moral support and late-night assistance in the art department. We trust that you will enjoy this compilation as much as we suffered making it and must warn you: pre-production of Cyberia 4 has already begun...

Thank YOU for your continued support and remember: Music piracy is ILLEGAL!"

The Artwork

With the existing Cyberia series having graduated to a production run of around thirty copies and a similar amount of pre-release orders, a properly polished package and professional presentation became a prerequisite. Preserving only the fonts, a revised layout -- consisting of primarily a clean, white background -- was proposed.
