WE ARE BEYOND EXCITED TO BE CELEBRATING OUR 5TH ANNIVERSARY.
THE PAST TWO YEARS HAVE KEPT US FROM FULLY EXPRESSING WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE DO AS A COLLECTIVE. THANKFULLY, WE HAVEN’T LOST OUR PASSIONS AND INTERESTS.
SO, THERE SHOULD BE NOTHING STOPPING US FROM HAVING THIS CELEBRATION - A FIRST STEP YET A VERY IMPORTANT ACHIEVEMENT!
5-TO-HYPERSPACE IS A SPECIAL PROJECT EMBODYING AN 8 TRACK COMPILATION AND A COLLABORATION WITH OUR DEAR FRIEND AND GRAPHIC DESIGNER YURI KABAN, WHO HAS FRAMED OUR INFAMOUS CATHODE-RAY TUBE AESTHETIC IN A T-SHIRT DESIGN.
WE’VE GATHERED A CREW OF NEW AND GOOD OLD FRIENDS WHO EMBODY WHAT WE’VE ACCOMPLISHED DURING OUR JOURNEY SO FAR, POWERED OFC BY OUR SOUND DIVISION FUNCLAB RECORDS.
THIS PROJECT COMES TO LIFE THROUGH THE EVER GROWING AND EVOLVING SOUND-VISION AND VISUAL RESEARCH OF OUR COLLECTIVE.
