What are these KSS files?

KSS files are sound files ripped from MSX games in the same way as SPC files taken from SNES games or PSF files from PSX ones.

You can find more information at KSS Kingdom.

Why MSX?

MSX was a very popular computer in Japan, Europe and the Middle East during the 80s. A lot of great games were made for the system, with some of the greatest made were from Konami. Most of themes were done by Konami's Kukeiha Club. More information can be found at MSX.ORG and the Ultimate MSX FAQ.

For more information on MSX games, you can visit Konami MSX Games, MSX Games bOX and Possi's Konami MSX Page. Of course, Google will give you more alternatives.
