Book Shy FX
Shy FX is a true innovator for dance music across the globe and unquestionably one of the original pioneers of the Jungle and Drum & Bass scenes. If you would like to hire Shy FX to provide entertainment for your private or corporate event, make Contraband International your preferred booking agent. His almost two decade career imprinted his name in both the underground and mainstream folk-law. Shy FX continues to maintain his legendary status, whilst staying true to his art form, and staying relevant and at the forefront of eclectic dance music, like a true stalwart.
After his countless classic releases over the years on various labels such as London Records, EMI, Warners and his previous label ‘Ebony’ including the massive 90’s anthems ‘Original Nuttah’ feat. UK Apache and ‘Bambaataa’, Shy FX has gone onto release over 350 releases including the chart smash ‘Shake Your Body’ (which reached No. 7 in the UK Charts), as well as ‘Don’t Wanna Know’, ‘Murderation’, ‘The Message’, ‘Everyday’ and ‘Feelings’, and his `Diary Of A Digital Soundboy’ album, to name but a few

The Digital Soundboy Recording Company is Shy FX’s newly launched label, for which his vision is simple: “I wanted to set up a new platform for good music, not necessarily genre specific. A good label doesn’t need to be about one artist or sound. For us its simply all about the music”.
Though a relatively young label, Digital Soundboy has found its niche already. Shy FX’s leadership and A&R skills combined with a tight-knit team of like-minded Soundboy soldiers, has ensured a quality over quantity philosophy, steeped in flawless production, dance floor anthems and some of the finest guest vocal features.
From Shy FX & T Power’s ‘Diary Of A Digital Soundboy’ album and the massive single ‘Feelings’, the label has, to date released a number of first class recordings spanning the worlds of d&b, dubstep, UK Funky and broken beat, from the likes of Breakage, Skream, Benga, Redlight, Benny Page, Skream, DJ Fresh, Caspa, Attacca Pesante, Ruskoand many more.
‘Larger Than Life’ would be Shy FX’s next album project title and promises to be his best yet, featuring a cast of amazing vocal talents and surprise guests.
