Kissy Sell Out


Whether Kissy Sell Out is DJing to a packed out crowd, mixing avant garde new sounds on his weekly Radio One radio show, producing his own material or remixing for others, the results are always the same: Exhilarating. In the talent rich genre of electro, one name has always stood out as more forward thinking than the rest. Colchester-native Kissy Sell Out first exploded on to the scene with a series of technically ambitious remixes in 2006. His rework of Mark Ronson’s take on The Smith’s ‘Stop Me’, gained him particular kudos and was included in numerous compilations. It was enough to bring him to the attention of radio bosses, who offered the twenty-something design student a weekly slot on Radio One. Now over one hundred shows in, he has used it as an opportunity to showcase his own technical abilities, presenting a new Kissy Klub mix each week, a section of the show made entirely of his exclusive remixes made especially for that week. Along with his fresh attitude to mixing records, his amiable persona continues to draw thousands upon thousands of new listeners to his late night slot week on week. Fans not only want to hear what at Kissy has made, but also what he has found; he is a champion of new talent, and regularly plays tracks sent to him by bedroom producers along with tracks from more established artists and record labels.
