The Diggin' in the Crates Crew, commonly
abbreviated as D.I.T.C., is a hip hop collective from
New York City. It was founded by Diamond D and
Showbiz and its name is from the art of digging for
records to sample for production. The members have
achieved substantial and consistent recognition in
the music industry and Hip Hop circles. They have
collaborated with underground and commercial
artists from around the world. All of the members are
from the Bronx, with the exception of the late Big L
from Harlem, and O.C. from Brooklyn.
D.I.T.C., "The Official" Version is an alternative
version of D.I.T.C.'s self-titled album D.I.T.C. which
was not officially available on vinyl upon its initial
release via Tommy Boy when it became apparent
that group maintained vinyl rights of the album.
The Official Version has a different track listing with
many of the songs being totally different versions
than the ones appearing on the first album and also 2
tracks that weren't on D.I.T.C. at all - "All Love" and
"We Known For That" (which is actually a remix of the
12" single "Internationally Known"). The album is
executively produced by Show and re-released on
D.I.T.C. Records with distribution by Fat Beats
Distribution -20 years after its initial limited pressing.
Many of the songs appear in remixed forms that had
yet to be released, some remixes and some original
versions. Highlights include "Where Ya At"; the Big
Pun/Milano collaboration but here, instead set over a
slamming DJ Premier remix. Likewise, the "Way Of
Life" features a totally different Buckwild beat, that is
actually the original version of the track, that stands
in stark contrast to the B-Boy anthem heard on the
Tommy Boy album.
