In addition to Wasei, the album contains big name features from across the Japanese dance music landscape: Q'HEY, one of the fathers of Japanese techno; KO KIMURA, known for popularizing electro and acid house; Hideo Kobayashi, who works in deep house and techno; and TaQ, a composer known mostly for his contributions to the beatmania series of rhythm games. Notably, remixes of ""s"peEd" and "Cloudy, with occasional rain" from the original Cyberia Mix are included on Layer_2. "Cloudy" is erroneously credited to Wasei on this album, when it was actually produced by Akira Takemoto.

Cyberia Layer_2 was unveiled at the "serial experiments lain 20th Anniversary Event" at CIRCUS Tokyo club on the 7th of July 2018, which also featured Chiaki J. Konaka, yoshitoshi ABe and Kaori Shimizu in attendance. A limited edition promo CD, "Cyberia Layer_2 JJ's Bootleg Mix", was given away at this event.

The packaging for the album was designed by yoshitoshi ABe. Purchase of the physical edition included a download code for the two songs from JJ's Bootleg Mix; the DJ mix as an MP3, and the remix of "Duvet" as a WAV.
