Buckle up - KISSY SELL OUT is well and truly back. This, the first double A-side single ‘Wild In The Warehouse / Redrinkulous’ is from his sophomore album ‘Wild Romance’. It’s Kissy on top form, with his eyes firmly focussed on peaktime floors. It does what you’d expect – blows the bloody doors off.

He’s only 26, but Kissy’s packed an awful lot into his short career to date. Whether he’s DJing to a packed out crowd, mixing avant garde new sounds on his weekly Radio One show, producing his own material or remixing for others, the results are always the same: Exhilarating.

'Wild In the Warehouse' and 'Redrinkulous' are undoubtably huge club anthems, and Plump DJs, Krafty Kuts, Plaza De Funk, Rico Tubbs and Micky Slim are already playing it to packed floors. Both tracks get the full remix makeover with the originals being manipulated in every direction imaginable by this 7-mix package. Expect to hear these tracks out very soon. Indeed they may already be a favourite...

Over at Radio One, Kissy's now over one hundred shows in, and he has used it as an opportunity to showcase his own technical abilities, presenting a new Kissy Klub mix each week, a section of the show made entirely of his exclusive remixes made especially for the show. Along with his fresh attitude to mixing records, his amiable persona continues to draw thousands upon thousands of new listeners to his late night slot week on week. Fans not only want to hear what at Kissy has made, but also what he has found; he is a champion of new talent, and regularly plays tracks sent to him by bedroom producers along with tracks from more established artists and record labels.

When he returned to the studio to begin work on 'Wild Romance', there was one aspect of his career that Kissy took inspiration from – his radio show. In fact, he is sure that had he never been given the opportunity to be a weekly fixture national radio, this album would sound very different. “I weave in a lot of classical music and I think had I not done the radio show I wouldn't have known how to weave that in to a dance track. I'm so used to that, so what I wanted to was combine what I was doing already – writing my own music, and playing all my own instruments and composing it all – and mix that with the classical influence.”
