Group History

Desire is a demogroup based in the Netherlands, formed by Coyote. After a couple of years the group was merged with another, of which the leader was Ramon B5. They also had a strong Finnish section for a while, responsible for a fair amount of their productions. Ramon B5 was the original leader, but when he left (93?) another dutchman, Ultimax took over leadership. Twilight more or less left the scene in 1995, after securing a full time job making music for Graftgold Software.
Ramon B5 (08/92), THD (12/91-03/93 and Sacha (12/91-03/93) from the Dutch section formed the subgroup Facet's Pussy. They later recruited more members from the mother group, like the germans Chaos! and Kernal. Most of these members later returned to their original group. Another subgroup was also later formed, called Love. There were rumours early93 that 'SNARF'S PUB' had left, but they were entirely false, as reported in Freedom Crack #11. Thanks to Ego for some information!

1992 
T60 left to join the PC scene 09/92.
1994 
Right before The Party 94, dutch musician Fabian (03/92-) sold his amiga and left the scene. His promised BIG musicdisk project was cancelled, and was subsequently never released.
1997 
The Dutch core of Desire made a small comeback on the Bizarre 1997 party in The Netherlands and released the demo 'Okselzweet' which won 2nd place in the demo competition.
2010 
Infant read about Breakpoint 2010 and noticed Sacha/Desire was on the list of people that were attending. This sparked new enthusiasm and a lot of the old core Desire members were contacted to discuss the plans of possibly making another demo. Two other old scene friends, Hammerfist (Erwin Roosjen, graphics) and Plek (Niels de Wit, code) were asked to join Desire and help out. The demo will be released at Breakpoint 2010 and compete in the demo competition, with Sacha, Infant, Plek and Hammerfist representing Desire at the event.


  • Cone joined Spirit.
  • Courage (old handle Seat) joined Wizzcat.
  • Steve, sysop 'MYSTICAL PLACES' joined Alpha Flight.
  • Norwegian Switchblade (10/92) joined Compact Inc.
  • Untold, Gorry, Clawboy (08/92) and Undertaker joined Tragedy.
  • Dutchmen Zorlac (gfx, 05/92-03/93) and Ultimax (code, 05-12/92) both joined TRSI (Upstream #8). It is uncertain where this left Desire, since Ultimax took over leadership after Ramon B5 left... The two worked on at least "Future Inferno" [05/92], "Menace" [08/92], "Thaj Mahal" [12/92], "Morpheus" [01/93] and "Vluggertje" [03/93].
  • Finnish coder Venture joined Deadline. He made "Morpheus" [01/93] and the "ChipChop" series [93] for DSR. His latest registered production is from 11/93, so he probably left late 93.
  • German musician Pseudolukian (04/92-06/93) got kicked. He made music for "Channel X" [04/92], "Thaj Mahal" [12/92] and "Vluggertje" [03/93].
  • Germans Chaos! (gfx ascii) and Kernal (code, both ex Analog, new mid93-05/94) left to join the Desire subgroup Facet's Pussy. They both later returned to Desire.
  • German Skyfox (ex Dual Crew, new RAW5) joined joined Endless Piracy. However, Eurochart #22 claimed he left the scene.
  • Redferne (ex Awe) joined Devils. Also Remix later ended up in Devils.
  • Englishmen Bassline (Music, ex Anthrox) and Schizo left the scene.
  • Dutchmen Cloud 9 (swap) and Solid (gfx, both ex Vicious) joined Cryptoburners.
  • Jack (ex LSD) joined Compact Inc.
  • Ziggy Stardust (ex Cyberactive), Kyle (ex Starlight) and Dioxion joined Vanish, and Ziggy changed his handle to Cujo in the process.
  • Coyote joined Jetset (new).
  • Camelot joined Alpha Flight.
  • German swapper Stearo (ex Delight) joined Paradise.
  • Germans Rebel MC (swap, ex The Special Brothers) and Dark (ex Cyberactive) joined Noxious, so the German section is disbanded late 92. The following people are therefore obviously no more members of the German section: Vane, Bootbuster (ex Subzero, 10/92), TNM (ex Subzero), Vain (ex Subzero), Kreator (ex Byte Syndicate), Touchstone (code, later Essence), Dascon (later Essence), Trasher, Fancy and Powerswap (later Essence).
  • Iceberg, sysop 'THE HOOD' (ex Cyberactive) joined Spaceballs late 92.
  • Link joined Gothic.
