DJ Diamond
“It’s Not Rite”

DJ Diamond, whose Flight Muzik LP on Planet Mu last year made it to #5 on our year-end list, has just dropped a new track called “It’s Not Rite.” The song appears to be some sort of nod/reference to TMT favorite DJ Rashad, who released a track last year called “Itz Not Rite.” Even more convincingly: both tracks footwork the shit out of Vicki Sue Robinson’s 1979 song “Hope Your Feelings Are Like Mine” (which has also received the hip-hop treatment a number of times). Here, for yourself:

Diamond’s version is coming out soon on an eight-song EP titled Deeper Than Trax via new Amsterdam label Liquorish Dubz. And expect Flight Muzik Vol. 2 sometime this year, too.
