Drum & Bass is an underground scene by and large. Over the years there’s been the odd track here and there that has drifted into mainstream consciousness, but very few artists have been habitual chart botherers. One artist who has managed to successfully marry underground brilliance with mainstream sensibilities is Shy FX. From the early days of d&b, and his definitive ragga-jungle anthem ‘Original Nuttah’ through to the pan-genre smash ‘Bambaata’ in the late 90s, to appearances on Top of the Pops and a major label album in the early 00s, he has consistently poked his head over the parapet of the underground without ever losing the respect of his peers and the drum & bass purists. In recent years he has set up Digital Soundboy, a new label with his production partner T Power, which has seen them release their second joint album, ‘Diary of a Digital Soundboy’ which included the club smashers ‘Everyday’ and ‘Feelings’, and music from some fantastic artists including the likes of Breakage, Benny Page, Visionary and the mighty Calibre. Shy FX remains an integral part of the d&b scene as well as an in-demand producer and DJ.
