LISTEN TO / SHARE BAD AFTER WE HERE:
Tuesday 12 th March, London, UK – Legend, soundman, DJ and all-round UK pioneer Shy FX has released new track Bad After We featuring Ghetts and Kojey Radical.
Premiered simultaneously last night by Annie Mac on Radio 1 as her ‘Hottest Record In The World’ and DJ Target on Radio 1Xtra, Bad After We ft. Ghetts & Kojey Radical is lifted from Shy’s forthcoming long player project, Raggamuffin SoundTape . It follows the release of Rudeboy Lovesong ft. Sweetie Irie & Cara Delevingne and Roll The Dice ft. Stamina MC & Lily Allen.
Featuring a broad spectrum of both established and upcoming artists - including Cara Delevingne, Chronixx, Gappy Ranks, Ghetts, Kojey Radical, Lily Allen, Maverick Sabre and Sinead Harnett (to name but a few) - Raggamuffin SoundTape flawlessly switches through Hip Hop, R ‘n’ B, Dancehall, Breakbeat and Jungle to form an eclectic soundscape that melds together seamlessly into a satisfying whole. Full tracklisting below.
Raggamuffin SoundTape , released 15 th March and available to pre-order now, is the first long player Shy FX has made that he feels truly represents him as an artist:
“Everything fits together – its tight, it feels like one piece. The 15-year-old me would be overly gassed by this record - I wouldn’t have been able to imagine making all these genres, all these styles… And now I’m able to put it under the same name and it makes sense to people.” – Shy FX
To celebrate the release of Raggamuffin Soundtape , Shy FX will be hosting a one off cul.ture night at Night Tales (London) on 15 th March. Tickets available to purchase here: https://

ABOUT SHY FX
A child of original UK reggae, a student of soundsystem culture, and a warrior of innovation on the frontline of jungle , DJ and producer Shy FX has played a leading role in shaping the landscape of British urban music and global dance music.
Grandson of pioneering Jamaican soundsystem operator and record label owner DJ Count Shelly , Shy FX made his name in the 90s as a trailblazer of ragga-jungle with the release of seminal anthem Original Nuttah (feat. UK Apachi) which became one of the first ever jungle tracks to enter the UK top 40 at a time when the UK charts were more a place for Brit Pop and Girl bands . He helped fashion a scene that thrived on technical innovation, taking risks, and breaking down boundaries.
In the years that followed Shy FX dropped a plethora of diverse top 40 club bangers, (including the samba-flavoured top 10 chart hit, Shake Ur Body with T Power); won Red Bull Culture Clash; played his own part in the roots reggae revival with Soon Come ; and founded his independently run Digital Soundboy record label, which, after the release of his second album with T-Power, ( Diary of a Digital Soundboy ), grew to encompass electro, U.K. funky house, Grime, D&B and dubstep, releasing tracks by dozens of artists including Skream, Benga, Breakage, and Redlight. All in addition to remixing the likes of London Grammar, Rag’n’Bone Man, Jorja Smith and Protoje.
A true stalwart, Shy continues to maintain his legendary status, whilst staying true to his art form and staying consistently relevant. He has worked with everyone from Dizzee Rascal , Wiley , Ms. Dynamite and Kano through to Emeli Sandé, Plan B and Idris Elba.
