The sun is shining, weather is sweet.
Well, almost. The temperatures are up, and with Britain heading for the hottest weekend of the year thus far Clash feels in a safe place to conclude that summer has either already arrived or is just plodding up our garden path.
With that in mind, we are thrilled to be able to present an exclusive mix from one of the biggest names in British dance music. A visual artist by trade, Kissy Sell Out's skills behind the decks soon enabled him to ditch InDesign for Serato, to swap last minute deadlines for a last minute dash to the departures lounge before another international date.
Lynchpin of an acclaimed Radio 1 show, Kissy Sell Out continually updates his sound. Sure, that electro house rush is still prevalent but the average set from the Essex born producer contains more diversions, left turns and sideways thrusts than the average journey down the A12.
Always in demand, Kissy Sell Out has agreed to perform at this summer's instalment of Beat-Herder. A real gem, this Lancashire event matches an intimate feel to a sprawling, eclectic bill allowing it to continually punch above its weight.
Running between July 5th - 7th, names already confirmed for this year's instalment include Groove Armada, Jimmy Cliff and many, many more.
By way of preparation, Kissy Sell Out has crafted a mix exclusively for ClashMusic. Opening with an edit of the reggae classic 'Liquidator' it's a typically broad selection from the producer who drops in more than a few of his own Kissy Klub Versions along the way.
Packed to the gunnels with rare and unheard material, this will put a spring in your step no matter the weather.
Listen to it now... Grab it HERE.
