Biography

Goes, Netherlands (1996 – present)

The Outside Agency are DJ Hidden and Eye-D, hardcore and drum & bass artists from Goes, Netherlands.

The Producers

As true dissidents within the hardcore scene, The Outside Agency has always had its own unique sound. This was already evident on their first release, which they produced for Mokum Records in 1996. After that period hardcore suffered a drastic change in direction and the two members of TOA no longer felt at home in the genre and focused their attention on drum & bass instead. Around 2001 hardcore transformed yet again, but this time the agents were very pleased with the direction it had taken and they started producing and playing hardcore again with renewed vigor. After a string of successful releases on several international underground labels such as Black Monolith Records and Otaku Records the two founded their own successful imprint Genosha Recordings which is now one of the leading labels in dark underground hardcore. TOA often remixes other producers’ tracks and they still occasionally record for other labels such as Mokum, Hong Kong Violence and Enzyme, but their main focus for the foreseeable future is on Genosha.

The DJs

The Outside Agency is a style in itself and they are not easily put into one specific category. This is because their DJ sets are a mirror image of their work as producers. That means a perfect blend of dark and industrial elements that seem to work at almost every conceivable speed. TOA’s DJ-sets contain a lot of their own exclusive and unreleased material and when given free reign TOA’s sets can incorporate anything from old acid to breakcore.
