Diddy (dance act)

Diddy (dance act)

Diddy is the stage name of London DJ Richard Dearlove, responsible for the dance hit Feverpitch/Positiva release "Give Me Love" and also for a number of Blondie single remixes for the Chrysalis Records label. His remix of Blondie's "Atomic" reached #1 on the American Billboard Hot Dance Club Play chart.

In 2006, Dearlove successfully filed suit against hip hop star Sean Combs, who had been tempted to change his own stage name from "P. Diddy" to simply "Diddy". The terms of the settlement ordered Combs to pay Dearlove "significant damages" and barred him from releasing music under the name "Diddy" in the UK.
