The always incredible D.I.T.C. crew is at a great place right now both for themeselves and for their long-time supporters. Besides word on a brand new group album sometime this year, OC and Apollo Brown are releasing "Throphies"; Lord Finesse has signed a lucrative deal with Slice-Of-Spice which already brought us lots of exclusive vinyl releases and fat DJ mixes; Diamond D is working on a self-produced album as evident by his recent "Deflate 'Cha"; Showbiz & AG are preparing "Mugshot Music" for this summer with the street album "Preloaded" preeceding it on May 8th.
As if that wasn't enough, Showbiz has just released his all instrumental digital album called "Still Diggin' Vol. 1" which is now available @ iTunes. I listened to it earlier and it's a GREAT listen, real chunky beats in true D.I. fashion which I personally think is a lot better than the previous "Bar'Bury'N Beats Vol. 1". Included are some brand new productions, some recent Show & A instrumentals as well as a few from the "Godsville" LP with KRS. Make sure to check out the promotional music video for the single "The Cloth" up top, with cameos from just about everyone in the Diggin' in the Crates crew as well as Lil' Fame and DJ Premier. Check back tomorrow for a Show produced, D.I.T.C. related cut that may very well be news to you.
