KISSY SELL OUT (RADIO 1)
Since he started working professionally as a producer in late 2006, Kissy Sell Out has worked on official remixes for many notable artists including The Human League, Mark Ronson, Sugababes, Gwen Stefani, Groove Armada, The Noisettes, Datarock, Calvin Harris, and All Saints. In 2009 Mixmag described him as "one of the most exciting, charismatic and entertaining DJs of the decade".
In July 2007 Kissy Sell Out was signed by BBC Radio 1 to present a monthly installment of a specialist dance music show called In New DJs We Trust. In October 2008 he permanently took over Eddie Halliwell's Thursday night slot to host his own weekly show called the "Kissy Klub". His radio show covers a huge selection of musical styles and genres with the tracks often seamlessly mixed together.
Kissy Sell Out brings his mind boggling tour to FWAP! where he will be hosting the main room alongside some other huge artists. The young DJ/producer has since gone on to even headier heights and is respected as one of the biggest names in dance music right now!!
NETSKY (HOSPITAL RECORDS)
Rarely have we seen someone rise through the ranks this quickly, and having a Belgian passport doesn't often turn D+B heads, so you can be sure it's his tunes which do the talking. In less than 12 months Netsky has secured releases on some of the biggest names in the scene, Liq-Weed Ganja, Spearhead and Talkin Beatz gained DJ support from the likes of Friction, Hype and Fabio and also earned a nomination as "Best Upcoming Producer" within just months of his first release at the Drum + Bass Arena Awards.
Firmly reserving a seat at D+B's top table, Netsky has signed exclusively to Hospital. With his unique sound now to be bolstered by Hospital's A+R team, big things are expected for Belgium's premium D+B export.
FENECH SOLER (LIVE)
We are very pleased to announce the first visit of super cool new band FENECH-SOLER to 53 Degrees on the 9th October! The band, from Kings Cliffe, have released three singles to date which have laid out a blueprint of soaring melodies and synth laden hooks. The critics have been going crazy over the band on both sides of the Atlantic and they are waiting with baited breath for the hotly anticipated debut album. Get your ticket early to avoid disappointment!

THE WHIP (DJ SET)
A dance-rock act from Manchester, England, the Whip spent a few years working the indie electronic underground before making their full-length album debut in 2008 with X Marks Destination, notably produced by Jim Abbiss. In 2007 the Whip released Divebomb as a 12" single on Kitsun with a Crystal Castles remix on the flipside; the single was also compiled on Kitsun Maison, Vol. 4. Also in 2007, the Whip did a few remixes ("An End Has a Start" by Editors, "Please" by Paul Hartnoll featuring Robert Smith, and "Strawberries" by Asobi Seksu) and signed to Southern Fried Records, the label of Norman Cook (aka Fatboy Slim), which resulted in a pair of single releases,
HOT PINK DELOREAN (U.S.A)
Hot Pink Delorean hit the scene in November of 2007 when Chris, Matt and Jon of the D&B group Terravita decided to make some electro due to their back up release schedule. The first 3 tunes (Played Out, Badonkadonk & an MIA bootleg) were posted on the Dicsodust blog and generated massive hype. HPD followed up with more tunes on several blogs that also met with rave reviews. Before they knew it the boys were remixing artists like Britney Spears, Beyonce, Q-tip, Pixie Lott & Just Jack, touring all over the planet and hearing their hits like "Party Favour" in the sets of DJs like Carl Cox, Benny Benass and morei. Now joining forces with Kissy Sell Out's San City High label and Pieces of Eight Records the boys are coming back from the future and its all Hot Pink in the 2010's.
D.O.D (AKA Dirty Dan)
D.O.D’s passion for music began when he bought his first set of turntables at the tender age of 11. Up until last year the DJ went under the name of his alter ego ‘Dirty Dan’, but after recently being signed to a record label it seemed a name change was due, and the name D.O.D was born! Now, at the age of 22, D.O.D is considered one of the most exciting new talents to come from dance music. Having literally played all over the country he rocks crowds every week, taking with him his unique, in your face turntable wizardry, playing a mix of House, Techno, Electro, Breaks, Dubstep, Drum & Bass, Hip-Hop and Indie.
D.O.D recently won the ‘Mixmag, Blackberry & DSI search for a resident DJ competition’ which will see him fly over to Ibiza to become the resident for Mixmag for the whole week. He will play a string of wild parties across the Island bringing havoc everywhere he goes!
Check out D.O.D's new music!
Formerly a drummer and percussionist, he began to DJ with HipHop MCs and at skateboarding contests in 2004. He started to produce in 2008 by editing Booty and Bmore mashups, he progressed to find his unique style of production in-between his love for World and House music, which he takes inspiration from while adding ghetto energy and structured thoughts like movie stories. Signed to Kissy Sell Out’s ‘San City High’ record label, this chap is set for big things!
