Her vocals were the sound of Urban Cookie Collective and were also well recognised from drum & bass classics such as Goldie’s Inner City Life and Kemistry. Charlemagne also toured with Moby’s live band.
The release of her next single – It’s In Your Eyes – will go ahead as planned on 20 November, with proceeds going to her family.
The track is a Mancunian tour de force featuring Andy Rourke, Simon Wolstencroft, Pete Booker, Mike Bennett and Jote Osahn. A drum & bass remix has also been done by Youth.
Following the announcement of her death Goldie tweeted his respects: “So she went into the early morning… God rest her soul #diane what a gifted voice.”
