Lunatic Calm quietly split up since the release of Breaking Point in 2002, with sHack placing the blame on record labels (this was also a factor in the numerous delays in releasing their last album). However, sHack has been active in the DJ scene, operating under the name Elite Force. Some of his songs (both remixes and new tracks) have appeared on The Crystal Method remix albums, Community Service and Community Service II.
