Our special guest selector for this edition of SUNDAY SESSIONS is DJ and producer SHY ONE.
Mali Larrington-Nelson is only 26 years old but has already been doing music for nearly a decade. It began, for her in 2003, as the story goes, 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 and 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.
Since the release of her “Bedknobs and Boomkicks” from DVA music we see the emergence of a fully-fledged talent, schooled through years of creative hard work and hard knocks and completely confident in who she is musically.
As usual, support from Kengo, Eddieboi and djsoulprovyder holding down the 4 to the floor sound.
