Group History

Digital was formed after Magnetic Fields was reorganised, and all the best German and English members formed this new group around the middle of 1991. These days the 10 remaining members are, unfortunately, mostly inactive. They will leave behind a handful of good productions, most notably perhaps the trackmo "Lethal Exit" [12/92], the 40k intro "A Maze In" (07/93) and the musicdisk "Extemporized" [10/93] - all of which were made by their previous french members.

1992 
Spook, coder of the "Punisher" (04/92) trackmo, left the UK to work in Silicon Valley, USA. German musician S-Sex joins from Action.
1993 
Evil E was kicked late 93.
1995 
English musician Sync joined TRSI early.


  • Finnish sysop Allah joined Parallax, where he's running 'THE CHAMELEON'... was the board also in DTL?
  • Finnish swappers Poke (07/94) and Tint (94) joined Facet's Pussy/Desire.
  • German coder Chip-Ram (07/94) left to rejoin his old group, Wizzcat late94.
  • Sniper left to join The Special Brothers.
  • French musician and swapper Reverse (12/92-10/93) joined Melon Dezign.
  • The entire French section joined Complex sometime between 10 and 12/93. This concerns musician Clawz (ex The Special Brothers, 09/92-10/93), coder Gengis (ex Liquid, 12/92-10/93) and graphicians Eloy and Titan (ex Anarchy, 07/93), though he MAY have joined Scoopex instead.
  • Frenchman Vodka (ex TSB) was kicked out, so he rejoined The Special Brothers.
  • The entire Finnish section, John Peel (trade, ex Black Robes), Kevin (gfx sysop, ex Magnetic Fields, 09/92), Grim (ex Magnetic Fields), Duncan (ex Magnetic Fields) and Hifi (sysop 'LAST GENERATION', ex Grace) joined Damones (old). Later, new Finnish members would join.
  • French graphician SPH was kicked early 93. The only production I can find that he worked on was Gengis' trackmo "Lethal Exit" [12/92].
  • French swapper and packer Wizz (ex The Silents) was kicked 02/93. Redman will take over his packseries 'POST-IT!'.
  • Rotox left for Anthrox.
  • German swapper Yoyo joined Fifth Generation 08/92.
  • English coder Paradroid (ex Razor 1911, 04/92) left to make games for Core Design. He later joined Anarchy.
  • Dexter (music, ex Plague, new 04/92), Ford Prefect (sysop), Shrimp (code, 04/92) and Sync (music, 04/92) were all kicked. Sync rejoined, Shrimp later joined Ghost.
  • Lots of Germans were kicked in early 92; Andy & Ray, Seco, First Revolution and the graphics-team Groo and Rufferto (all 04/92). Groo and Rufferto therefore joined Delicious.
  • German Flaxx joined Bloodsuckers.
