diggin' in the crates Unreleased Production 1994 (CD, £11.95)
Back in 1994, the Diggin’ In The Crates crew went into NYC’s Chung King Studio to make an album. Using their established brand and trademark sound, they decided to shine some light on up and comers 40 oz, Armageddon, Terror Tongue, Amed, Silky Black, Page, Silky Black and Ghetto Dwellers, and backed them with the production of Show, Diamond D, Buck Wild and Lord Finesse. Unfortunately, due to the usual industry red tape, the album was shelved... until now. Show himself has gone deep into the D.I.T.C. vaults and unearthed the 11 original tracks, along with a remix of ‘Big Apple Gone Rotten’ featuring Fat Joe. ‘Unreleased Production 1994’ is vintage D.I.T.C., namely dusty, dark loops with neck snapping drums and deep booming bass, yet at the same time defiantly forward-thinking for 1994 with a strong emphasis on the Quincy Jones-style soundtrack sound in favour of the prevailing early 90s uptempo, familiar break beat vibe. With ‘Unreleased Production 1994’ finally being released to the masses in 2008, be ready for more coming from the D.I.T.C. family including a new studio album and a Show & AG project.
