Crissy Criss

To say Crissy Criss started out young is an understatement. On the decks at the age of 9, a festival gig in Essex a year later, playing Kiss FM at 11, messing around with productions at 13 and securing a coveted slot on Radio 1's The Residency when he was just 17 years old, it’s fair to say few DJs and Producers have achieved this much in their entire careers. In 2007 he secured a weekly slot on 1Xtra where he has been a regular fixture ever since. In addition to his widely supported Drum & Bass productions and remixes Crissy Criss was responsible for the 2009 Dubstep anthem “Kick Snare” with Youngman on V Recordings. Catch his show every week Thursday 0100 – 0400 1Xtra.
