Colchester-native Kissy Sell Out returns with his second album, Wild Romance. After exploding onto the scene with a series of technically ambitious remixes in 2006, his rework of Mark Ronson's take on The Smith's 'Stop Me' gained him particular kudos and was included in numerous compilations. The buzz was enough to secure the design student his own weekly shot on BBC Radio One.
Although he's known for his fresh attitude to mixing records, it was his aptly named weekly Kissy Klub mix, a section of the show made entirely of his exclusive remixes which continues to draw thousands of new listeners to his weekly late night show. Fans not only want to hear what Krissy 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 alongside those from more established artists and record labels.
After reviewing, and disliking Kissy's 'Wild in the Warehouse / Redrinkulous' EP it was great to discover that those tracks are not typical of his work. The majority of the singles on this album are well produced and certainly the sort of club tracks you could easily listen to to get you in the mood for a great evening out.
One thought: Where they really singing "Tony Hart" over and over again on 'Turn it On'?
