For the artwork, they thought it was a good idea to contact the legendary Ian Anderson from The Designers Republic, who made the original 'Drugs Work' artwork. The British graphic design studio based in Sheffield is best known for electronic music logos and album artwork for Warp Records, having designed the most iconic releases of Aphex Twin and Autechre.
The story of System 01 starts way before the early '90s, and precisely in the early '80s, when Melbourne-born producer/bassist Johnny Klimek achieved worldwide chart success after a move to Berlin, with an act called ‘The Other Ones’, which included his brother Alf and twin sister Jayney Klimek.
In the years that followed Johnny set up his own production studio in Berlin, and together with Paul Browse went on to infiltrate the electronic music scene with System 01 and Effective Force, with releases on Interfisch/Tresor.
Founder member of the Sheffield cult group Clock DVA, Paul Browse, feeling that this body of work could not be topped, left in 1989 both Clock Dva and England, in favour of Berlin, to start a new life and to continue his occult research. The high point and most successful experiments of his period with Clock Dva can be heard on the album "Buried Dreams".
After a short period of quarantine, Paul was welcomed into Berlin's underground research network, meeting Johnny and embarking himself on a series of joint adventures with the city's most dedicated and driven. Together they established the new sound of Berlin. Moments later the Berlin Wall fell.
