Word on the street is that Shy FX has signed the South London tripartite collective, Attacca Pesante, to his illustrious Digital Soundboy label. The question on your lips, no doubt, is why?

Well, Make It Funky For Me, feat. Shae Soul (think sexy, soulful vocals over deliciously, dirty beats) is one of those delectably “funky” tracks with an infectious groove and echoes of R&B, soul, jungle, house and garage. Which, of course, means it is just crying out for a remix, and Shy FX & Benny Page, Rusko, and Roqwell & I Sancho oblige, with some smashing re-licks, bringing out the fresh-faced jungle and dubstep-infused flavours, with a pumping rave-tastic house version too.

It’s already received widespread support from Mistajam, Annie Mac and the 1xtra DJs, and will no doubt be a hit with any discerning dance music fan too.
