Digital aka Steve Carr is the primary musical moniker. This Ipswich based producer is known exclusively for his old skool beatz and dubby B-lines but a short conversation and a little investigative listening indicate this is one producer likely to pull a few seriously weighty tricks out of the bag. Digital has been involved in music all of his life, particularly reggae. Main influences being from his father having run a sound system for about thirty years. His musical tag & skills come from his knack at tampering with electronic equipment from the early age of fourteen. From about 1989 to 1991 Digital was busy running around playing reggae with sound systems, till the fateful period when all this rave business crept in. Around 1991 the scene started to grow heavily in Ipswich and the surroundings areas. Digital started hiring out his sound system to various promoters having raves in and around Ipswich, this is when he started checking out the scene and its music.

1991 was also the year Digital met Danny C. The two eventually joined forces to produce Split Personality for Certificate 18 under the guise of Authorized Riddim in 94. Steve got to know Rupert Parkes, best known as Photek, around town in Ipswich who helped him get underway on his own studio. His first solo release was Touch Me on Timeless Recordings in 1995 but it was the phenomenal Spacefunk also on Timeless that really showcased his talents alongside tracks such as Down Under on Metalheadz that put his name firmly on the map. To follow was a host of releases for likes of Moving Shadow, Photek Productions and Creative Source.

In 1998 Digital teamed up with friend & Producer Duncan Busto a.k.a. Spirit and set up Phantom Audio . It arose from the desire to have their own base where there was no set musical agenda. Their debut release, Phantom Force has already found a prominent place in the sets of DJs as Grooverider, Fabio, Goldie, Storm, Randall, Andy C, Hype, Ed Rush and Optical alongside a whole host of others. Phantom Force has caused a huge demand and has become one of the most played tracks of 1999, 2000 and is still receiving play to this day in 2010.

Digital & the Phantom Audio sound has formally made its mark in the drum and bass circle with the appearance of Crash on the Renegade Hardware LP Armageddon, and reworks of Guardians Of Dalliance Transient also Loxy & Inks Airlock. Featured on the Movement Perpetual Motion LP One Ton, Eaze Off & Remote Control + Phantom Force(P.Audio), the mighty Metalheadz Platinum Breakz LP Vols 1, 2 & 3 & the Legendary limited Edition Enforcers Vols 2 & 3 on Reinforced.

In 2009 Digital renewed a collaboration with Outrage. A collaboration between longtime friends resulting in the highly -anticipated album Red Letter. Quickly followed by remixes from two of D&B’s big honcho’s : Tech Itch and S.P.Y.
2010 already saw releases of “Lifeline” and “Magic” (Digital & Outrage) on Backlash Records and “Weatherman” (Digital) and “Shanty” (Digital & Morphy) on Exit Records, with more to follow soon.

After touring Asia and New Zealand in the spring of 2010, Digital is now back in the studio, working on tracks with Salmonella Dub , an amazing reggae band from New Zealand, which already resulted in the Salmonella Dub remix ‘Up and Running’ by Digital and Morphy.
