There is no other vocalist that has made a mark on Drum & Bass the way Diane Charlemagne has. Probably most famous for her vocals on Goldie’s legendary Inner City Life track; she has lent her soul singing skills to a huge catalogue of music over her career in all genres of underground dance music.
Its with sadness that a generation of Jungle/D&B heads say good bye to the voice that has helped define the vocal aspect of our music.
Its pretty tough to find the classics on the internet video channels, but I did manage to find a pretty awesome live performance of “Inner City Life” featuring Diane Charlemagne and Goldie and the Metalheadz. Pardon the pun if I say this music is Timeless.
Thank You Diane!
