Kissy Sell Out Turns on The Electric, Brixton
Turn It On Tour Finale
KISSY SELL OUT HITS LONDON FOR HIS FIRST EVER EXCLUSIVE SHOW AT THE NEW ELECTRIC WIT H A HANDPICKED SELECTION OF SPECIAL GUESTS, INCLUDING THE MIGHTY RUSKO TOPPING THE BILL WITH SUPPORT FROM UNION AND FRIENDS!
Kissy Sell Out launched 2011 with the release of his eagerly anticipated sophomore album 'Wild Romance'. Critically acclaimed and adored by both fans and media 'Wild Romance' is an album full original bass-heavy, dancefloor destroying anthems. To celebrate the release Kissy completed a sold out tour of the UK to rapturous audiences. Building on his year of success Kissy also produced music and performed at the 'Olympics One Year To Go' official party at Trafalgar Square. The performance was broadcast to millions throughout the world and saw Kissy increase his ever growing fan-base on a global scale. Throughout the summer Kissy has played to packed out audiences at the leading summer music festivals as well as smashing the dancefloors of Ibiza no less than 7 times. To top this Kissy was given the unenviable task of debating about the relevance of classical music to today’s youth against the legendary Stephen Fry. He also managed to give Stephen a quick DJ lesson mid debate! Finishing off this amazing year for Kissy before he heads out on his Australasian shows, Kissy is bringing the finale of his 'Turn It On' UK Tour to Brixton Electric. Featuring a huge line up, killer production and earth shattering beats this is one party not to be missed!!!
Rusko is top of the bill, with good reason - returning for his first Major UK show after some quiet time, make sure you don’t miss this rare show with one of Dubsteps heaviest hitters. He discovered the world of dubstep through SUB DUB and a debut appearance from the “Digital Mystikz”, having spent the past 10 years making future dub alongside Leeds very own Iration Steppas, Rusko connected with the sound and moved down to London to further advance his musical opportunities. Veering away from the dark, serious side of the sound Rusko bought a highly driven energy and fun approach to the dubstep massive, quickly coining his own take on the genre that infected . His sound appealed to many people outside of the dubstep world as his productions became more adventurous in formula, sound and energy. His huge hit “Cockney Thug” has been played by everyone from Pete Tong, Switch, Diplo and Santogold. And has been remixed by Buraka Som sistema, Diplo, Drop the Lime and the Scratch Perverts. Now part of the Mad Decent Camp with collaborations on the horizon with the likes of Switch, Diplo , Santigold, Trouble Andrew, Hot Chip and more…the future sure is looking bright. Currently setting the radio airwaves alight with his own productions and remixes of artists such as The Prodigy, Basement Jaxx, Little Boots and plenty more, Rusko is only going in one direction. Onwards, upwards.
Originally from Paris, Feadz with his solid DJ background worked with Mr Oizo on his first album Analog Worms Attack and produce a few EP's on Ellen Allien's German label : B-Pitch Control.
