    The vocalist behind drum & bass classics like "Inner City Life" and "Kemistry" has died.

    Songwriter and vocalist Diane Charlemagne has died.

    Charlemagne first rose to fame as the voice of British outfit Urban Cookie Collective. Her soulful vocals appeared on a string of drum & bass hits, including Goldie tunes like "Inner City Life" and "Kemistry." She worked outside D&B too, collaborating with the likes of Japanese house artist Satoshi Tomiie and UK producer Joey Negro. She also spent time touring with Moby's live band.

    In recent times Charlemagne battled cancer and regularly kept her fans updated on Twitter. On October 28th she lost that battle. Goldie confirmed the news on Twitter, saying: "So she went into the early morning... God rest her soul #diane what a gifted voice." Our thoughts are with her family and her friends.

    Even though Inner City Life is one of the more important d&b tunes ever, i think i enjoyed her later work with Calibre & SPY more.
