Since the age of 12, Outsiders has been learning to spin the old-fashioned way: armed with vinyl records, he was determined to break down the clubs and parties throughout the Netherlands. Outsiders started as a duo in 2008, after Murat Meijer left the duo in 2014, Cem carried on the name solo and it paid off. He received three Golden records and a Platinum record for his music. His interest goes beyond dance and hardstyle and he has never come across a style he doesn’t like. “When I’m on vacation, I always bring back a local CD.”

“Music is art. Someone put time and effort into it.”

Over the years, Outsiders has gone on to perform at major events like Defqon.1, Tomorrowland, Mysteryland and Dance Valley, as well as many other festivals and clubs across Europe, Asia, and South America. His outsized personality finds an expression in every track he touches and takes any party to the next level.

Need we say more? Outsiders gives his all and is an asset to any event, as long as you just want to throw a party. It’s impossible to stay still while listening to his engaging sets, so be ready: Outsiders is coming your way!
