Kiss & Tell Guest DJ: Peter Van Hoesen
When it comes down to combining the best of many musical worlds, Peter Van Hoesen can say he's been doing it for a while now. Deeply rooted in the Brussels electronic music scene as DJ and producer since 1993, he's considered by many as a man with multiple musical talents: from straight-up dancefloor jackin' techno to advanced abstract electronica. His music has been released on his own labels Time To Express and Foton as well as through Berlin's Lan Muzic and Brussels-based Meakusma. He's active as a DJ, producer, sound designer and composer for contemporary dance and theatre.

We are very lucky to add Peter Van Hoesen to the line up. He will be playing a special set much like the 80s set he created for Todd Burn's Promo Mixes site. Listen to the mix here - tracklist

Kiss & Tell Guest DJ: Reade Truth
New York native and Vienna globetrotter Reade Truth has been rocking the decks since 1990. His first of over a dozen releases came out in 1994. He is known for irresistible mixes in the house and techno genres, and for this month at Kiss & Tell, a rare darkwave and synth pop set. Truth's influences range from Skinny Puppy to Derrick May. As a producer he has made his mark on many EPs for cutting edge labels like Direct Drive, Strictly Rhythm, Sonic Groove, Instinct, Pomelo, Planet E, Wurst Music Co. and of course his own imprints: Path Records and White Label. A key figure in the NY and Brooklyn scenes, Reade Truth has consistently provided an important source of edgy, often experimental electronics, always delivered with style.

Kiss & Tell Hostess, Photographer, Designer: Seze Devres started Kiss & Tell as an extension of her raunchy knitting circle at Trash Bar on December 7, 2005. At first only a few people showed up to her new cocktail party. However with a lot of help, support, and encouragement from her friends the party has become its own little beast. When she is is not dreaming up crazy themes and guests for Kiss & Tell she is a full time artist and designer.
