A highlight 12" from the Total Refreshment Centre x International Anthem event at Rye Wax as part of the EFG London Jazz Festival, 15-24 November 2019.


One of the hands-down head-bangers of Makaya McCraven’s 2018 release "Where We Come From (CHICAGOxLONDON Mixtape)" was bubbling London-based producer/composer Emma-Jean Thackray’s contributed track, “Too Shy.” Slotted into the B-side of the DJ-style suite, Makaya’s finishing touch on the mixtape format of the collection meant that we would miss the full extension of Thackray’s work – which was intended, as she originally made it, to run a minute longer than it does on "Where We Come From," and also include a half-time bonus beat outro.


Being the banger that it is, it seemed appropriate to give Thackray’s original “Too Shy” its own focused format, and hence we (International Anthem) have partnered (once again) with our good friends at Total Refreshment Centre to present this 12” version on limited edition wax.


The B-Side of this 12” is a smoking re-work of another cut from the original CHICAGOxLONDON Mixtape, “Run ‘Dem,” courtesy of the one and only Gilles Peterson!
