Kissy Sell Out. 15 years after he first exploded on to the British dance music scene, Kissy Sell Out’s eclectic and vibrant career has been quite astonishing. Kicking-off 2022 with a fresh to-do list pinned to the wall, Kissy is currently working away in the studio with music icon Boy George, his time spent during the various lock-downs forever honing his signature production skills continuing to turn heads and catch the attention of the biggest names in the industry with as much feverish enthusiasm as ever.
Touring the globe as a DJ and musician, dazzling huge crowds from Tomorrowland to Glastonbury, Ibiza to Japan, Australia to Los Angeles – and pretty much everywhere in between - there are few places on Earth where Kissy is a stranger. And yet, even with so much demand for his feverishly energetic DJ skills (including being hand-picked numerous times by Fatboy Slim, The Prodigy and LCD Soundsystem for some enormous shows), Kissy’s off-stage activities have spawned no less than six full-length artist albums, two influential record label imprints, credits as long-serving brand ambassador for Pioneer DJ. Not to mention, a highly revered legacy as one of BBC Radio 1’s most outstanding specialist presenters to boot... He even had his own line of skinny jeans jumping off the shelves at one point!
So then, what’s next? Well, it’s never been particularly easy to predict the next wild adventure to be undertaken by this nomad of post-modern styles and passionate turntablism. Pre-pandemic, we saw Kissy returning to his electro roots after going in-deep with his critically-acclaimed and unashamedly bassline-focused album “Style From The Westside”, with a long-list of polished and sharply on-point new house records planned for release being indefinitely shelved as the nationwide lock-downs began. However, after using the unexpected free-time thrust upon so many of us to focus on his studio work as both a producer and DJ, news of his exciting plans for 2022 just go to prove that Kissy Sell Out is still artist you can bet you’ll be hearing more from very soon...
