Kissy Sell Out launches label
BBC Radio 1 host and producer Kissy Sell Out has launched his own imprint in the hope of excavating more musical talent.
Building on the success of his radio show, Kissy will use San City High to release a mixture of his own tracks and those of promising young producers he comes across. The first release, “Come On Over (This Could Be Love)”, a collaboration between Kissy and Tinashe, came out this week, and is available exclusively at Juno Download. (You can also listen to it below.)
“Being in my position, I’m very lucky and I’ve seen first hand how much talent there is out there,” he told Juno Plus.
“That’s the inspiration behind the label – to give a chance to the up and coming artists, because the quality is out there.
“I get sent so much stuff, the mailbag is enormous, and I always wish I could do more. This is another step in the right direction, it gives me a great feeling, and the opportunity to get a bit more involved with all these producers.”
Kissy said he liked the immediacy of running a digital-only label.
“I like the idea of being able to hear a track, and within a week have the wheels in motion to get it released.”
Keep an eye on Juno Download for more San City High releases very soon.
