I'm pretty sure that the bassline used in "The Code" is also used in Bad Company's "China Cup" (which is another wicked tune).

Interesting fact, Dbridge is an uncredited co-producer, as Monochrome.

Dbrdige mentioned this in an interview, which you can read here http://www.theransomnote.com/music/gone-rave/gone-to-a-rave-48-dbridge-and-the-formation-of-bad-company/

"And then you were suddenly in Bad Company- how did you join together with Fresh and Vegas?

That was a time when there was a mass exodus from Renegade Hardware. As I remember it, they wanted to sign us all into deals, and we didn’t want to sign –no one wanted to sign. They were a bit like sign or go, and we were like, OK, and went! ‘Black Thursday’ we used to call it, it was sometime around April. It was Future Forces, Genotype, Kane, Red who all left. Me and Jason were gonna start a label with Red and Kane – it was going to be called Nerve. But we knew that they were on the TOV side of things and we were on the Hardware side of things, so we knew we were going to run into the same problems of the label being confused.

Fresh and Vegas had come down prior to this happening and we’d made tunes together – we were on the same tip. They were doing stuff as Absolute Zero, and The Code was made around this time – Clayton [ToV boss] left me off the credits for that, something which I’ve still never forgiven him for. There should have been my name- as Monochrome- on there as well. In fact we wanted to record that tune as Bad Company but he didn’t like the name. So we were like alright…. We; Maldini, me, Fresh and Vegas, started chatting and decide to do something together. We pretty much spent that summer writing the Inside the Machine LP"

once again Mr Fresh & Mr Maldini (from Bad Company) strike with big sounds. this time under Absolute Zero + Subphonics name.

"The Code" is a massive techstep tune. classic, heavy 2step beat and fat reece bassline with some dark sci fi atmosphere. very dark & hard. worth to check it out. dancefloor killa !

b-side is good too, but its more drumfunked - with some twisted, funky drums. also has dark sci fi atmoshere. good for home listening.
