You might know Kissy Sell Out in any number of guises. He’s a DJ, remixer, radio and TV presenter, label boss and musician, highly regarded in all of them for both his talent and enthusiasm. Last week he also went head to head with Stephen Fry at the Cambridge University Union to debate the relevance of classical music to today’s youth.
Right now, we’re going to talk about Kissy the musician, as he’s releasing his second album, ‘Wild Romance’, on 23 May. His debut, ‘Youth’, was a collection of pop tracks which recalled the highs and lows of his teenage years. Album two sees him moving on, taking inspiration from his eclectic Radio 1 show to create something that seamlessly melds everything from pop to electro house to dubstep.
He says: “The album is full of breakdowns and basslines. Every second drop is different. It’s me all over, which is cool. I like the idea of doing things that no one else is doing and being an innovator”.
Ahead of the album release in May, CMU asked Kissy to put together a Powers Of Ten playlist. Before pressing play on his choices, he set the scene: “I’m in the San City High studio. It’s quite late at night, but it’s moments like this that are perfect for sharing tunes with people, I think”.
