Artist Biography

Shy FX, aka Andre Williams, is a jungle/drum and bass DJ from the U.K. who brought the genre to the mainstream in the 1990s. He is the grandson of Jamaican sound system DJ Count Shelly. Shy FX debuted in 1993 with his single “Jungle Love” which got him signed to SOUR where he had worked as a tape operator. Soon after he released his breakout single “Original Nuttah” in 1994. This single became an anthem for the jungle genre and broke into the U.K.’s Top 40. In 1995, he released his debut album Just an Example. The same year Shy FX founded Ebony Recordings under which he released singles that fused jungle with old-school hip-hop. In the early 2000s, Shy FX started working with T-Power on more drum and bass oriented tracks, with the first one “Shake Ur Body” becoming a U.K. Top Ten hit. The pair released the full-length album Set It Off in 2002 under the moniker Ebony Dubsters. Shy FX continued releasing music throughout the next two decades with his most recent releases being singles that came out in 2023.
