Shy One - DJ Directory Mix #7

Shy One - DJ Directory Mix #7

Chart positions

This show was 2nd in the global beats chart, 3rd in the global uk garage chart and 3rd in the global house music chart.

Stepping up for mix #7 of our Directory series we have Mali Larrington-Nelson aka Shy One.

Shy is 26 years old, but already she’s been involved deeply in music for nearly a decade. It began for her in 2003, just as grime was emerging as a musical force and having its “wot u call it” moment. A youth club DJ course with scratch wizard DJ Blakey gave her the bug, she began to collect those early white labels – by Wiley, Target, Danny Weed, DaVinChe, Musical Mobb, Dizzee, Wookie and Scratcha – and to DJ as part of a crew. Now unconstrained by anyone’s demands, she has been able to hone a distinctive sound that keeps the lo-fi punch and quirky synths of grime but explores her funkier instincts through house rhythms and varied tempos.
