WAX returned to Southampton a couple of weeks ago. Now, continuing on the same kinda theme, they’re back with Shy FX.
Shy FX is, without question, one of the original pioneers of the Jungle and Drum & Bass scenes; a true innovator for dance music across the globe. Shy’s career has spanned almost twenty years, cementing his name in both the underground and mainstream folk-law. A true stalwart, Shy continues to maintain his legendary status, whilst staying true to his art form, and staying relevant and at the forefront of eclectic dance music.

An innovator during the glory days of jungle, Shy FX was there when tempos increased and sub-low frequencies took over. Pushing ahead during the drum and bass years, the producer has continually looked ahead to the new thing, the latest style. Now, though, Shy FX has pretty much come full circle … Drawing clear parallels between two generations of bass culture, the jungle pioneer has turned his attention to approach reggae on his new album “Cornerstone”. Released this summer, it found the Digital Soundboy mainstay exploring a new direction.
Here’s one of the singles from said album “Soon Come” that features guest vocals from Liam Bailey:
Shy will be accompanied by his good friend and collaborator Stamina MC. Support on the night will come from Gerra & Stone and Photon b2b Whitey.
