Paul Reset’s notes:

After a chance meeting while both working for a cable TV company in Glasgow, I formed a good friendship with Scott (English, AKA The Noisy Minority) and we launched a site in 1999 called Phuturetech. The site’s purpose was to host dj mixes in streaming real audio (remember that!) and it did quite well – we had some fairly big names submitting exclusive mixes (Praga Khan and DJ Zinc amongst many others!) but in the end hosting became a problem and we closed the site.

So as well as that we also worked on a bit of music together and this track was the fruit of a fairly drunken session. Scott started the track and had the main structure and hook etc – I just kinda polished it up, added strings etc and Scott has admitted that the Milli Vanilla break was his idea!

Anyway – moody, dark breaks is the order of the day on “Code 420” and to this day is still the favourite track that I’ve worked on, Annie Nightingale even played it and said very nice things about it! Here’s a wee clip of her playing it (cheers Scott!).


We drafted in Hoista to kinda cheer it up a bit and his remix is a bit of a belter – big chunky breaks bizness! The final track on the release – “Crisis” is a really doomy downtempo number from myself – Kemal later remixed it dnb style to great effect on NERVE005.

The artwork was designed by usual Nerve designer Nick at Yuva.TV.

(oh and I’ve nicked the artwork from Rolldabeats temporarily until I get my own versions online)
