    2. 2. About Kissdafunk • The brainchild of International DJ Rob Tissera and Glyn Tolley, KDF started life at the Mint Club, Leeds in January 2004. Both decided to set it up after they noticed there was a gap in the market for a night that playing good house music that wasn’t pretentious. A night where people could really let their hair down. The aim was to recreate the vibe of the Hacienda but with an up- to-date twist. • From day one KDF hit the spot immediately, cultivating a firm and dedicated fan base; with word soon spreading. By its first birthday it was the place to be, attracting headliners such as David Guetta, which won an HMA. Since then it’s never looked back. • Five years on and it’s welcomed some of the biggest names in house, won awards, completed a successful season in Ibiza, released its on single and two albums, while travelling the world. • 2009 will see it return to Ibiza with the world famous Judgement Sundays and continue to welcome the biggest names as David Guetta, Steve Angello, Seb Ingrosso.

    10. 10. What Press & DJs Say? • The crowd at Kissdafunk is amazing, reminding me of the acid house days,’David Guetta (Winner of Best House Dj, House Music Awards 2005) • A music policy that goes from funky house to electro and techier stuff means it stands out from the competition. To be honest I’ would rather eat my own hand than go to 99% of the house nights in the UK. They are pretty much all rubbish and ruled by soul destroying funky house. KDF is different, it’s about a party so there’’ is never a dull record.’ Mixmag Features Editor Gavin Herlihy www.kissdafunk.com /www.twitter.com/kissdafunk

    13. 13. The KDF Crowd • The typical KDF goer is from about 19 to late 20s. It attracts a well turned out group who are trendy, friendly & love to have fun. They have a zest for life and love to let their hair down. Forming a mixture of students, professionals and music lovers, they are musically open minded & knowledgeable and are just as likely to be at a Kissdafunk one night and a band, pop concert or a trance night the next • KDF Leeds not only attracts crowds from Leeds and Yorkshire but from throughout the UK with people often travelling from as far away as Scotland, Plymouth and overseas to enjoy the KDF experience; often queuing two hours to get in. www.kissdafunk.com /www.twitter.com/kissdafunk
    14. 14. Music Policy • KDF’s music policy is to play the best cutting- edge house. It must create a party and make you want to dance. Whether it is a vocal stormer, a driving tech house track or a minimal techno offering, it doesn’t matter as long as it vibrant and gets people on the dance floor. The DJs invited to play reflect this music policy. • The music range stretches from vocal, jackin’, electro, sexy grooves and chunky basslines with a little bit of tech house and minimal thrown in. The emphasis is on playing the best new music. There is only one rule, it must make you dance. • www.kissdafunk.com /www.twitter.com/kissdafunk
