Biography

Giuseppe D’Alessandro – aka Kisk – is the owner of Apparel Music, a label based in London but with multi-cultural roots. After years spent paying his dues in Milans historic clubs, from Old Fashion to Trattoria Toscana, in unauthorized centri sociali or ‘squat clubs’, fashion shows and radio work, he turned his attention to production. He explored a variety of genres, from trip hop to swing, passing through jungle, West London and Detroit house, to deep house, while never abandoning jazz – the wildest and most impeccable of all – progressively building a digital project. Out of this came the concept of Jazzy, the ability to make jazz and electronic music communicate. This passion is also manifest in the Oneboy project – musical instruments played live to a DJ set. Giuseppe put this project together with writer Tatiana Carelli under the name Taji bpm. Oneboy performed at the 2007 Salone Del Mobile furniture show, at various national festivals and events and on an Italian tour in 2008. Also with Taji he created the Discokit® project, a kind of “sensory stimulation kit” – the dance club becomes ‘takeaway’ and enters the world of art with more than 60 events held over two years. The discography is varied and rich in international collaborations, starting with releases for Multivitamins (UK), then for the Seta label (Slovakia), Darek Recordings (Switzerland) and Miniatura Music (Argentina). In 2009, Giuseppe creates Apparel Music – a ‘kitchen’ of artists from all over the planet. Among the many partnerships are long-established collaborations in Russia with the duo SCSI-9 and in Germany with major artists like Lopazz, Elon, Chris Wood, Tom Clark, Ekkohaus as well as Moodymanc, Domu, Tuccillo, Ali Kuru, Yapacc, Casio Casino, Korablove, Huxley, Lula Circus, Delano Smith, Gavin Herlihy, Brother’s Vibe and the list goes on.

The last years Kisk has perfomed in special parties like Privat, Doc Show, Maximal, EDIT Fesival and legendary clubs like Fabric, Tresor, Amnesia, Fluid, Peter Pan, Bitte, Pergola Tribe, Link and many less known but equally important parties.
