Diggadee MC Has launched from the world of Drum n’ Bass and landed on planet Dubstep. Although Dnb will always be the main ingredient on Diggadee’s menu, the Dubstep movement brings a more expansive range of musical awareness. Performing with many of the biggest names in Drum n’ Bass from around the world, Diggadee has also managed to work with the biggest names in Dubstep as well i.e. Skream, Benga, Borgore, Datsik & 12th Planet; to name a few. As the two genre’s seem to intertwine, the ability to vibe and adapt is necessary in an ever changing music scene. MC Diggadee, Diggadee MC…the spaceship has landed.
