The first five years of Balanced flew by pretty quickly, and a lot was learned about running a label amidst immense change in the music industry. Northern Faction 3 came about through connecting with other like minded musicians locally and at international conferences. This was the most varied collection we had put together, moving through nu jazz, downtempo, turntablism, ambient and dub. Designed by Marc Remoquillo, we really got worked up over his design. A collage of pencilled faces, we debated endlessly about the information banner and the bar code on the front. Balanced was on the verge of disbanding. Not really, but the topic still comes up from time to time. This was a very personally emotional album; it was during a time of both marriage and mourning in the Balanced Records family. The full spectrum of these emotions is found in NF3, making it a benchmark in the label's history.
