Frank Nitzinsky (born 14 October 1974), better known by his stage name, Eye-D, is a Dutch drum & bass producer and DJ based in Goes, The Netherlands. He is one-half of hardcore duo, The Outside Agency, alongside DJ Hidden.

History[edit]

Eye-D has been an active drum & bass and hardcore DJ/producer since 1991.[1] His professional musical career began with a hardcore release on Mokum Records in 1996.[2] His first drum & bass releases were issued by Kultbox Records in 1998.[3]

Music[edit]

Eye-D's musical style is best characterized by its hardcore influences. He has released drum & bass music on record labels such as PRSPCT Recordings, Lost Soul Recordings, Evol Intent Recordings, Black Sun Empire Recordings and Ruff-Teck Records. He has collaborated with artists such as SPL, Black Sun Empire, Counterstrike, and Evol Intent. Eye-D collaborates very frequently with DJ Hidden with whom he forms The Outside Agency. Since the release of The Outside Agency's first EP on Black Monolith Records[4] in 2001, the 'Eye-D' moniker has been limited to his drum & bass material.[5][6]

DJ performances[edit]

Eye-D regularly performs at musical events internationally, both as Eye-D and as part of The Outside Agency.[7] In the Netherlands, Eye-D and DJ Hidden are frequent guests at underground club nights PRSPCT[8][9] and Smackdown.[10][11]
