“it's the lesser-known shy guy who stands out above the rest. his ‘that body’ struts with all the easy gliding bombast of a just blaze track” - pitchfork


shy guy (sometimes credited as shy beats) is an up-and-coming producer and engineer from dallas, tx, currently based out of nyc. his productions often utilize ghostly vocal loops and ambient textures, blending numerous regional influences, ranging from dusty break-driven boom-bap to southern crunk and trap. past production work has been featured on spin, pitchfork, thefader, vice, complex, xxl, hypebeast, the source, stereogum, and billboard. he was named a 2014 ‘producer to watch’ by fact mag, an influential online electronic music magazine based in the uk.

artists he’s worked with include le1f, black dave, junglepussy, ian isiah, bodega bamz, fat tony, tink, smoke dza, grande marshall, haleek maul, maxo kream, meechy darko (of flatbush zombies), and stalley.

shy guy has also composed for film, syncing music to casey neistat’s online ad campaign for mercedes, as well as promo videos for converse and stussy.

as an engineer, shy guy mixed and mastered joey bada$$’ breakout mixtape 1999.

he has dj’ed at numerous events for stussy, puma, undefeated, herschel, and new balance, in addition to contributing mixes for ssense and mishka. he was a featured participant at platinum-producer illmind's b.l.a.p. beat showcase. during his freshman year at nyu, he was a 3-time consecutive champion at the monthly beat battle at nuyorican poet’s cafe in the l.e.s.


“the track’s beat by shy guy sounds like it was recorded in a dank torture chamber.” - thefader

“a shit-talking fest backed by monolithic production from shy beats” - complex

“typically shadowy, trap-addled, and new age-assisted beat provided by shy guy” - spin

“a trunk-rattling beat that sounds like it was crafted twenty thousand leagues under the sea.” - fact
