She is the curator of Plasmodium, co-creator of KRAKT and as a founding director of Decibel Festival played an integral role in making it one of North America's premier electronic music festivals. Kristina Childs' eclectic range of musical style has allowed her to share the stage with artists of many types, including Speedy J, Jacob London, Thomas Fehlmann and Bassnectar. In 2007 she won the Battle of the Mega-Mixes competition and successfully defended her title in 2008. She is known primarily as a techno DJ, however you can hear her play everything from ambient to hip-hop, downtempo, electro, disco, new wave or funk. Coming soon is Nastina, is the ghetto-fabulous alter ego of Kristina Childs.

Kiss & Tell Guest DJ: Big Bully
Hailing from Los Angeles with Mexican heritage, Dawson Baca (aka Big Bully) likes to work the crowd with his playful yet incisive cuts, jacked up beats, and sultry vocals. He is a dj/musician/vocalist/producer and label head of his label Mineral Musica. Bully's unique blend of streetwise flavor and techno sophistication certainly adds an edge to the minimal techno scene. This renegade musician is always in search of the new, whether he's on the decks, on the microphone, or rocking a live set. He has two releases coming out very soon with Adultnapper on Culprit and Simple Records.

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. Seze's images and designs have graced dozens of galleries, record covers, posters, flyers, magazines, and web sites. She also co-hosts and photographs the guests of The Bunker, a world renowned weekly techno party in Brooklyn.
