The meaning of «shy fx»

Andre Williams, better known as Shy FX, is a British DJ and producer from London. He specialises in drum and bass and jungle music.

Shy FX's debut record was "Jungle Love", released in 1992 on the Permission to Dance label. Soon after, he signed to Sound of the Underground Records (often abbreviated as S.O.U.R.) and in 1994 released the breakthrough ragga jungle track "Original Nuttah" (featuring vocals from MC UK Apache) which helped to cement his position as a mainstay producer of the jungle/drum & bass scene.

Throughout his career, he has collaborated with T Power, both as Ebony Dubsters and Shy FX and T Power; their 2001 breakthrough track "Shake Ur Body" with vocalist Di (real name Dianne Joseph) was a number 7 hit in the UK Singles Chart. Released on EMI subsidiary Positiva, it gained widespread support from both club and commercial radio DJs and helped to further popularise drum & bass as a mainstream music genre.[1]

The success of "Shake Ur Body" was followed by the duo's album Set It Off, released in 2002 on Pete Tong's label FFRR. Several EPs and single releases followed; by 2005, Shy FX had made the decision to consolidate his releases onto his own label and founded Digital Soundboy Recordings. In collaboration with T Power, they subsequently released the album Diary of a Digital Sound Boy on 17 October 2005, featuring the songs "Feelings", "On The Run" and "Plastic Soul". Shy FX and T Power also released "Don't Wanna Know" featuring Di and MC Skibadee. The song was notably used on the UK television programme Soccer AM as part of the 'Skills Skool' feature.

Shy FX produced "Da Feelin" for Dizzee Rascal's 2007 album, Maths + English.[2] He also produced "Can't Tek No More" on Dizzee Rascal's 2009 album, Tongue N' Cheek. His remix of Naughty Boy, Wiley and Emeli Sandé's song "Never Be Your Woman" was released as the single rather than the original mix. Shy's remix charted at number eight on the UK Singles Chart. He remixed "She Said", a number 3 UK chart single by Plan B. His remix was released on both the "She Said" single and on the deluxe edition of Plan B's The Defamation of Strickland Banks.

More recently, he produced "Raver" featuring Kano, Donae'o and Roses Gabor, plus the UK artist Yasmin's first single, "On My Own". He announced that his album, Larger Than Life, was originally scheduled for a 2011 release but has since been renamed Cornerstone but did not have a fixed release date.

Williams also produced Yasmin's third single "Light Up (The World)", which features Ms. Dynamite. It peaked at No. 50 in the UK Singles Chart.[3]

DJ Fresh's single "Gold Dust" was re-released, with the Shy FX Re-Edit as a single, on 2 December 2012. The extended play includes multiple new remixes.

In 2013, he released a single called "Soon Come" featuring Liam Bailey, famous for his collaboration with Chase & Status on their track "Blind Faith". The song reached number 55 in the UK Singles Chart.[4] He also released the single "Cloud 9" in 2013, a collaboration with Ms. Dynamite.
