This Is Issst mixed by Kevin Griffiths & Bobby M

ISSST has come a very long way since the seeds were first sewn just a handful of years ago in a certain dark, sweaty Kings Cross warehouse. Kevin Griffiths & Bobby M get set to spread their wings yet further as they release the first recording from their groundbreaking electronic avant-garde that is ISSST recorded live at The End (London), serving up an audio snapshot of the ISSST experience.

Beginning life as a platform for the now legendary Berlin production/DJ duo Tiefschwarz, ISSST has grown into one of Europe's most loved underground electro warehouse parties with residencies and regular appearances at The End, The Key, Ministry of Sound, Turnmills, 333, Egg, and Medicine, and is soon to become a force to be reckoned with on the festival circuit too with forthcoming festivals in UK, Greece, Bangkok and Australia.

ISSST's main meddlers Kevin Griffiths & Bobby M are at the controls and in the mix. Together they've been relentlessly tearing up dancefloors all over the world with their exhilarating brand of anomalous, electrically-charged, high voltage electro-techno-acid-house; Slaying crowds and critics with forward-thinking, cutting edge sets with the ability to take in everything from off-kilter
electronic oddities, nervy disco, edgy electro, acid house, techno and beyond, gathering a loyal and fast-growing following and cementing their standing as one of Europe's leading electro pairings, drawing plaudits from their DJ peers and punters alike.

With this CD Kevin and Bobby have fashioned a mix that gets to the heart of what ISSST is. It features records from artists that play their part in capturing and contributing to the sound and experience of ISSST including tracks/remixes from Playgroup, Rob Mello, Radio Slave, Radioactive Man, Oxia, Silversurfer & Kiki, Drama Society, Cosmic Sandwich, Tim Paris and many more, dexterously strutting across the electronic spectrum, forming an electrifying fusion of futurist acid house, rich angular electro and machine-made soul with a digital pulse.

To coincide with the album release, Kevin Griffiths & Bobby M will be undertaking a worldwide 'This is ISSST' tour from August to November.
