This Friday the one and only Shy FX is taking over Motion. A book could be written, about his contribution to the world of music. This is why he is probably the best person to end the Black History Month.

Even though we are years away from the "golden age of  jungle", the man himself still prove us that he is fresh and kicking

Two years ago, Shy FX, Chase & Status, Rage and David Rodigan won 2014’s Red Bull Culture Clash as Rebel Sound (picture to the right). 


Shy Fx's remix of Proteje’s first official single from #1 Reggae album, Ancient Future, became 2016’s summer anthem. (Some people are hoping for a forthcoming album after Legent released his latest single „Honey” (clip))

Featuring this Friday are headliners of the new UK Bass generation - TQD (ROYAL T, DJ Q, FLAVA D) and Holy Goof, whose new singles are featured on UKF.

A taste of Grime will be added at The Blast by the Newham Generals who are renown for their live performances. The Newham Generals recently released a single called „Locked in”, which is promising a banging night. Joining the crew this Friday is Chimpo with a Special Halloween Dubplate (stay tuned;-). 

The Blast Halloween Carnival of the Dead is promising to be an interesting mixture of blood („festival of the dead”), sweat, old school and be cool ("new underground").

The question of the night will be: Can people appriciate the reputation and pedigree of Shy Fx or will he become the next victim of the new wave? In the latter case the night might be ending with:
