MC Shaydee aka Capo is a name ubiquitous within the Drum and Bass scene as pure quality on the mic. A truly versatile MC, he bridges the gap between many forms of bass music. He is recognised throughout the scene as one of the best to ever grace the stage.
Shaydee was brought up amid a thriving soundsystem culture. Bitten by the bug from a very early age, he’s never missed an opportunity to write new lyrics and hone his natural, relaxed, clear vibe and flow. He crafted his style on several of the legendary pirate radio stations throughout the UK. This lead to bookings on many of the major large raves across the UK & Europe.
His lyrical skills quickly came to the attention of Shadow Demon Coalition. Shaydee wasted no time in becoming a core member of the group bringing his influential lyrical delivery.
With an ability to flex from grime-style to ragga to bona fide rap, he’s in regular collabs with some of the most forward-thinking influential producers in drum and bass. Notably with DJ Sly and DJ Pacso on the Higher Stakes label. Releases have included, Charles Bronson, Ackee & Saltfish and Black Jack EP.
Crucially aware of the powerful position an MC is in while never forgetting that his role on stage is primarily to entertain, Shaydee ensures the perfect balance of consciousness and delivery. Not just in his lyrical flow, but also in life. When he’s not in the studio or on stage he’s a consummate family man.
2019 has been a busy year for Shaydee having appeared all over the UK & Europe. Appearances include; Breakin Science, Jungle Mania, ReWired, Innovation, Summer Gathering Festival and Clash in the Capital.
