Next from the duo, came the CMI Wavesequence single on the A13 label.Alongside the Frozen Tundra EP on French label Shield records and Blue Basique release.

The duo also released the more electro based Harmonic Disassembly in 1997 on Global Communication’s Universal Language label followed by a release with Carl Coxs offshoot Ultimate Breaks Doidy dawg.

In late 1999 Gallagher split from the group to pursue a solo project under the name Linear Systems. Carl under the guise Dolphin Wave Effect, later to be known as Wave Effect, continued to write and produce music on his own and has collaborated with other artists including keyboardist Andy Keyes, studio engineer Daniel Mcnamara, and programmer Karl King.
