Talent Sakè: Kisk

Giuseppe D'Alessandro - aka Kisk - is the owner of Apparel Music. Art Director, communication designer, grafic designer, illustrator, project manager, A&R, producer and DJ since 1996.

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. With Taji he created in 2006 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 Pro-tez (Russia), Circle Music (Germany), The dub (IT), Vibe Me Records (ES) and many others. In 2009, Giuseppe creates Apparel Music®. Among the many partnerships are long-established collaborations in Russia with the duo SCSI-9 and in Germany with major artists like Lopazz, Ekkohaus, Emerson Todd, Yapacc as well as Delano Smith, Ivano Tetelepta and the list goes on. In 2015 Kisk start a new collaboration with italian maestro Claudio Coccoluto and become the project manager of his label, the dub. In 2016 born Quartet Series, a fresh imprint, run by Kisk and Nachtbraker, with four vinyl releases in the pipeline, featuring four different artists and commissioned storyboard comics on the sleeve. Since 2016 start a new sub-label, co-founded with Ludovico Schilling, called Apparel Tronic (bliss beat, electronica and experimental staff). Curator, A&R of Apparel Wax (ghost collective) since 2017. Actually dreamer, illustrator, creative designer, music marketing teacher.
