HOSTED BY: KISCH
Think back to 1993. Baggy pants, curtain hair, grunge rock and Bill Clinton. But also the year the iconic 100% Dance Hits compilation album flew into UK stores on a whirlwind of loud, head turning t.v. ads. Hits by Robin S, 2 Unlimited, Snap & Haddaway and their blindingly colourful videos had sugar rushing kids like Kisch saving up their curly wurly money to buy a copy to make sure they weren’t the last people to work out the lyrics to “No Limit”. This was the moment that Kisch’s love affair with electronic music began.
As the years rolled by, Kisch’s tastes graduated to the Van Helden, Kinchen and Masters At Work classics that kept 90s dance floors nice and sweaty, and his obsession with a good catchy vocal would soon become the vehicle driving his own creativity. As an early career tickle, his first releases caught the attention of the creators of one of dance music’s seminal records, The Shapeshifters, and a collaboration soon followed which garnered support from Pete Tong on his radio shows in the UK and stateside.
Since then it’s all gone anything but Pete Tong, with records such as Love All Day and Say You’re Mine helping to rack up over five million streams, igniting Danny Howard’s ear drums to a significant enough heat to be made his “Friday Fire”, and twice claiming second spot on Traxsource’s overall chart. His tunes also have a habit of sneaking onto compilations by the likes of Toolroom and Cafe Mambo, with further support coming in from DJ S.K.T, Sam Divine, Sonny Fodera, Mat.Joe and even crossing over to stadium fillers like Afrojack and Oliver Heldens.
Kisch has also had the pleasure of travelling the world, playing at monster nightclubs such as Ministry of Sound, Es Paradis Ibiza, Ocean Beach Club, Egg London, Pacha Munich, Cafe Mambo Ibiza and in countries as far reaching as South Korea, Thailand and Azerbaijan. His ability to blend vocal house anthems with rhythmical groovers has kept club goers fist pumping with the energy of Mike Tyson, and with some of his strongest records in the works, expect to see his name on a nightclub poster near you soon.
