The single "Me Estoy Volviendo Loco" (Going Crazy) became a hit in Europe, Japan, United States and Australia. The album "Digital" (-83) was a collection of songs from the two first albums, "La Edad de los Colores" and "La Noche" (The Night).
The album was a huge success. The band kept releasing synthpop albums: "Suspense" (84),"Mercado Común" (85) and "Babel" (86). Then they released two Maxi Singles under the Blanco Y Negro tag, called "Es El Colmo!" & "No Smoking".
Four years later the album "De Vuelta al Futuro" was released. This album had old classics that were mixed together, In "Mix Azul" & "Mix Negro".Three years later (96) a mix collection was released with the title "De Vuelta al Futuro II".
