Kissy Sell Out
Shoreditch, East London
After 11 years in the music game, Kissy Sell Out continues to be one of the most unique players in the British dance music scene. Having made his name by mixing records for Gwen Stefani, Calvin Harris, Mark Ronson, Sugababes, Groove Armada, Human League and Chromeo when he was only 21 years old and still studying his first degree at London’s prestigious Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, his name exploded across the global festival circuit with his frantic and electrifying DJ style, leading him onto hosting one of the most popular specialist shows in BBC Radio 1 history, the “Kissy Klub”.
Kissy has released 5 albums to date – Youth, Wild Romance, Introducing Kissy Sell Out, and San City High All Stars Volumes 1 & 2 – each garnering respect from critics and fans alike, influencing the direction of evolving electronic music and introducing innovative signature styles with every turn.
Kissy has been on the cover of Mixmag, DJ Magazine, iDJ Magazine, and a host of other publications over the last decade. He has also written full page articles for The Independent, and been the subject of articles by a variety of journalists in other major broadsheet newspapers such as The Times and The Guardian. He is also the patron of several charities, in particular supporting the British Association of Adoption and Fostering, Changing Faces and CALM for the majority of his career.
As of 2017, Kissy heads up the new house and bassline garage label Stepper Man. The launch of the label exceeded all expectations early on when the second release received over 3 million plays on Facebook after Kissy uploaded his self-made promo video utilising his pre-music background as a graphic designer. With this label Kissy continues to release music under his own name, as well as using the moniker KSO to write more experimental techno and bassline garage tracks.
As a live performer, both as a DJ and in his early “Kissy Sell Out Live” band, Kissy has toured the globe extensively, performing in all the world’s continents apart from Antarctica, touring the USA seven times, and Australia nine times.
He was the official tour DJ for The Prodigy on the UK arena tour of their fifth studio album, and has supported Fatboy Slim on many occasions at home and abroad. At the time of his BBC Radio 1 show, Kissy began hosting a bi-monthly night at Manchester’s famous Sankey’s club. These “Kissy Klub” events have since been hosted regularly at The Plug in Sheffield, Stylus in Leeds, and XOYO in London.
