Producer/ DJ TS7 was today announced as the latest addition to the Kiss DJ family.
The 23 year old is the latest of the hot new crop of “Kiss Fresh DJ’s” joining the station
TS7 will take up the 3-4am slot on a Friday night every 4 weeks from this Friday 13th September, playing a mix of the UK Garage, House and Bassline sounds he has become known for since his career began in 2006 as a 16 year old producer making music from his bedroom in Bradford.
2013 has already been a great year for Thomas Sampson aka TS7, who signed to highly successful dance/urban label 3 Beat Records, whose roster includes Duck Sauce, Matrix & Futurebound, Stylo G and Fuse ODG.
His remix resume includes A-list names such as Yolanda Be Cool, Afrojack and Estelle, while his own first offering on the label was the infectious “Heartlight” which featured the stunning vocals of rising star Taylor Fowlis. The track gained massive radio, TV and club support with playlists from Kiss Fresh, MTV Base (Alist/ No 1 in Base chart) and 1xtra (A List).
His instrumental “Receptive EP” was recently released to a great reception on iTunes and Beatport and his new single “Reach” is his next scheduled release.
Also look out for a club tour in association with his live agency Milk ‘N’ 2 Sugars happening this winter.

Radio 1’s Queen of Daytime Sara Cox has picked Stylo G’s hot dancehall smash “Soundbwoy” to be her ‘Big Thing’ this week. She’ll be playing the single every day between 10am and 1pm.
If you missed the first play earlier today you can listen back here.
Ever wondered what’s on Stylo’s all time favourite playlist? The guys over at Earmilk.com asked him just that and he put together this ‘Influencer Chart’ for them. His picks cross decades and continents and come from the likes of Busta Rhymes, Beenie Man, Bridget Kelly and Snoop Dogg. Genius!
If you’re in London this weekend, get yourself down to the Jazz Café on Friday night and catch Stylo G live. He’ll be joining his 3 Beat label mate Fuse ODG as part of The Norte Show Live, hosted by Choice FM’s Manny Norte. It’s going to be a massive night. You can get tickets here.
“Soundbwoy” isn’t out until May 26th but you can pre-order your copy on iTunes now.

It might be raining outside but there’s no damping down the appetite for Stylo G’s new single “Soundbwoy”. Last night Kiss FM’s DJ Hype played the massive Sigma remix of the track. If you haven’t heard it yet have a listen here.
Today Stylo’s interview with The Voice Online went live. In it he talks to Dionne Grant about why he wants to celebrate the term ‘Yardie’ and opens up about his father, Jamaican dancehall star Poison Chang, who died when Stylo was just 13.
The day ended with People’s Prince Charlie Sloth playing “Soundbwoy” yet again on his drivetime show on 1Xtra. Thanks for all the support Charlie!
Definitely a good day at the office…

Things are hotting up for UK dancehall star Stylo G as excitement about his latest single “Soundbwoy” continues to build.
The single was added to the BBC Radio 1Xtra playlist last week. And this week “Soundbwoy” burst into the Music Week Urban Club Chart at number 7 – the week’s highest new entry.
Zane Lowe played the Sigma remix of the track on his show on Radio 1 on Wednesday night (he played the original mix in a previous show). Initial Radio 1 support for the single came from Toddla T and Rob Da Bank. Choice FM has been hammering it for weeks, so has Rinse FM.
And on Saturday “Soundbwoy” was the soundbed for the ‘Showboat’ feature on Sky Sport’s popular magazine show Soccer AM.
That sent the single shooting to Number 2 on the iTunes Reggae chart!
“Soundbwoy” is released on May 26th but is available to pre-order on iTunes now with remixes from DiGenius, Sigma and Ross Couch.
If you still haven’t seen the video take a look.

As well as being Twin B’s ‘Best of British’, the single has been getting spins from the likes of Trevor Nelson, MistaJam, David Rodigan, CJ Beatz, Seani B and Robbo Ranx at 1Xtra.

People’s Prince Charlie Sloth has chosen “Soapbox” – the new single from “Magnetic Eyes” star Baby Blue – to be his Record of The Week! The track will play out every day this week on Charlie’s 1Xtra drivetime show between 4 and 7pm. Baby Blue will join him live in the 1Xtra studio on Thursday, April 4th.
Best known for her recent chart smash with Matrix & Futurebound, the London based singer, rapper, songwriter and all round superstar returns to her rap roots with “Soapbox”. The tough-talking street track has Blue throwing out punchline after punchline and features the production skills of hot new talent Diztortion (currently grabbing attention for his work on Stylo G’s “Soundbwoy” and Lethal Bizzle’s “They Got It Wrong” featuring Wiley).
If you didn’t already see the video for “Soapbox”, made by SBTV, you can check it out here.
Charlie Sloth debuted the track in March and Blue joined him on the phone…jokes! If you missed it the first time round you can listen back here.
Since then it’s been getting spins across 1Xtra (DJ Target, Viz, Nick Bright), Choice FM (Woody, Manny Norte, Firin Squad, Ras Kwame) and Rinse FM.
