Crissy Criss

Crissy Criss might be one of the youngest presenters currently broadcasting on BBC Radio 1xtra but he's a DJ with a truck load more experience in his particular field of drum & bass than he lets on. With one of the old school's most prominent names, Kenny Ken, as a step father, Crissy was exposed to his first set of turntables by the age of 5 and 4 years later he was teaching himself how to beatmatch records. If that sounds crazy, consider that his first set at a festival came at the age of 10 and he was performing at The End in London a year later. It's fair to say as a broadcaster he's been educated in clubs for pretty much half of his life and that kind of baptism by fire really comes across in the confidence of his selections.
