Shy One

Shy One / Mali Larrington-Nelson (b. 1990) has been working with music since 2003, when a youth club DJ course with scratch wizard DJ Blakey introduced her to mixing, after which she started collecting early Grime White Labels by artists such as Wiley, Target, Danny Weed, DaVinChe, Musical Mobb and Dizzee Rascal – and to DJ as part of a crew.

A year later she began to play with Fruityloops, and searching for her own sound Mali disguised herself using the face of a cartoon character and the name Shy One as she shared her music online. Shy One's Decaffeinated Love EP was singed to Scratcha DVA's label, and with her recent Waterfalls EP Shy One has found her individual sound and confidence as a musician.
