Biography

Colchester, Essex

Kissy Sell Out is a DJ, producer and graphic designer from Colchester, Essex. Kissy Sell Out quickly gained notability in 2006 for his eccentric electro productions and energetic DJ style. In 2009 Mixmag described him as “one of the most exciting, charismatic and entertaining DJs of the decade”.

Since graduating from Central Saint Martin’s in graphic design, Kissy Sell Out is an underground sensation. Influences range from Sonic Youth, Scritti Politti and Swans to Aphrodite and Mickey Finn’s late 1990s drum’n’bass, dance producers such as DFA, Headman and early Daft Punk.

He played electric guitar since the age of 11 and began DJing at the age of 13 after turning from a Nirvana fan to a dance music fan overnight after hearing an acid house mix CD. Kissy soon started taking remixing and producing seriously. Following a short stint in a mainstream electro pop band, Kissy decided to go solo and explore new musical territories.

“When I made my first honest piece of music under the Kissy Sell Out guise, which I felt proud of, I suddenly realised that I had quite literally sold out in previous productions to try and appeal to a wider audience while repressing my urge to make something so much dirtier, and so Kissy Sell Out was born!”

Many late nights working saw his graphic design project/imprint San City High, Kissy Sell Out music and design projects moving from strength-to-strength. Like-minded artists from around the world signed up to San City High with Kissy being the sole driving force running the whole operation from his bedroom.
