Legend, soundman, DJ and all-round UK pioneer Shy FX has released new track “Bad After We” featuring Ghetts and Kojey Radical.
The new single is a work of genius, unsurprisingly from a seasoned veteran in the game. Dark, brooding and twisted, it is the perfect playground for the two rappers and their distinctive styles. Kojey demonstrates his animated dexterity in terms of word play and near-villainous tone. Ghetts follows on with his swift and sharp delivery, dabbling in double-time territory. The swagger is ridiculous.
“Bad After We” follows the release of “Rudeboy Lovesong” with Sweetie Irie & Cara Delevingne. Both are lifted from Shy’s forthcoming long player project, Raggamuffin SoundTape dropping March 15. We expect this to be a game-changer.
Shy FX, on the record, shared: “Everything fits together – its tight, it feels like one piece. The 15-year-old me would be overly gassed by this record – I wouldn’t have been able to imagine making all these genres, all these styles… And now I’m able to put it under the same name and it makes sense to people.”
