The Outside Agency
The Outside Agency is a style unto itself. Delivering a perfect blend of dark and industrial elements at almost every conceivable speed, their DJ sets are a mirror image of their work as producers. Bringing hardcore in all its diversity, this duo’s unique blend of dark industrial hardcore will always be at the center of the performance. True dissidents within the hardcore scene, The Outside Agency has always had its own unique sound. The motivation to be different yet effective was already evident on the very first releases on Mokum in the late 90s. When hardcore suffered a drastic change in direction shortly thereafter, the two members of The Outside Agency (DJ Hidden & Eye-D) no longer felt that they could operate without restraint in the genre and started focusing their attention on drum & bass. Some years later hardcore had transformed yet again, and this time they were very pleased with the direction it had taken. They quickly started producing and playing hardcore again with renewed vigor.
The Outside Agency is a style unto itself, and as DJs they are not easily put into one specific category. The reason for this is that their DJ sets are a mirror image of their work as producers. They will deliver a perfect blend of dark and industrial elements and can do so at almost every conceivable speed. The Outside Agency’s DJ-sets always contain a lot of their own exclusive and unreleased material, and when given free reign their sets can incorporate anything from old acid to breakcore. They can bring it fast and they can bring it slow, but one thing is certain: their own unique blend of dark industrial hardcore will always be at the center of the performance. Check their set at the PRSPCT Stage at Ground Zero Festival 2019!
