Group History

Dual Crew Shining (DCS) was born when the two groups Dual Crew and Shining merged in april of 1993. The fact was announced at The Gathering, held later that month, through some small intros.
Red Devil is busy raytracing graphics for games from Softimage these days, though he hasn't left the scene!

1993 
After being born in april, the group released their first signs of life late in the month, at The Gathering, with the two intros "Anvend Håndkle" and "April Fool". Mutant also participated in the graphics competition, where his picture "Two Girls" finished 8th. Norwegians Corny and Codeman (collectively known as CoCo Arts) and swedish musician Soul (old handle Dexter) all left for Rednex (new) in december.
1994 
Finnish trader Zephyr (Robert Karlsson), one of the original members who came in with Shining, finally decided to end his scene life. He sold all his computers to Haka and Truxton, and bought a motorbike instead. Today he works as a telecom business consultant and systems developer. German coders Zulu & Grey (ex Cryptoburners) left to join the new, reborn Rebels. German musician Chromag (12/93-) left to join Lego in may. He made his first musicdisk, "Chromagic" [93], for DCS. Swedish musician Azazel left to join The Black Lotus (TBL) between 10 and 12/94, where he sometime later would become one of the most famous musicians on the amigascene, largely thanks to his work on TBL demos like "Tint" [04/96].
1996 
Swedish coder Zero joined Balance late 96.
  • Phosphyre left the scene.
  • Smegma and Brainpower were kicked.
  • Coder Cocoon joined Scoopex.
  • German coder Cockroach (ex Analog) was kicked. He joined new german group Artwork with Voyage (sys) and jMS (gfx) 11/94.
  • Cyclone and Stranger (swap) got kicked.
  • Cero left the scene.
  • Storm (ex Jetset (new)) joined Essence.
  • German Plasma (ex Analog) was kicked out, and joined The Silents.
  • Boba Fett (fin), Double Density, Killroy and Sly (all from Shining) were kicked out.
  • German coder Raw Style joined from Paradise, but only for a brief period before moving on to Alcatraz Entertainment Software.
  • Cockroach was kicked.
  • English musician Dreamfish (Ian Ford, ex Hydlide/Divine, doublememb mono211 [music]) left the amiga scene to concentrate on the music group mono211 (where he is now known as DJ Hoffman). Some sources claim he joined TRSI early 95...
  • German swapper Agony joined Paradise
