Group History

Depth was formed in late 1993 by Curt Cool as a Danish demo group, and their first production was "Cool Tunes #1" [03/94]. During the year they released some other small productions, as well as many issues of their pack "Under the Surface" (01-99).

1996 
At The Party 6, they gave the scene what they called a "christmas present", and revived the official "Eurochart", with Cytron as the third main editor of the prestigious chart through history. This is probably what most people think of when you say 'Depth'. Bakerman's board was closed for a while, then reopened late 96.
