Deee-Lite

With the massive popularity of their hit single "Groove Is in the Heart," Deee-Lite brought the colorful sights and sounds of New York's club culture into the mainstream. Formed in 1986, the trio was led by vocalist Lady Miss Kier (born Kieren Kirby in Youngstown, OH) and fleshed out by a pair of DJs, Super DJ Dmitry (a classically trained guitarist and Russian emigre born Dmitry Brill) and Jungle DJ Towa Towa (born Doug Wa-Chung in Tokyo, Japan).

Fusing house, techno, rap, ambient, and funk music with an outrageous visual flair largely influenced by the drag queen community (Kier's fondness for Fluevog platform shoes helped the '70s fashion revival gather steam), Deee-Lite became hugely popular among New York club denizens, and the trio's own unique cultural make-up earned them a following which ignored racial and sexual boundaries. In 1990, they debuted with the album World Clique, a crossover smash thanks to hits like the loping classic "Groove Is in the Heart" (featuring the fluid bass of Bootsy Collins and the saxophone of Maceo Parker) and "Power of Love."

With their 1992 follow-up, Infinity Within, Deee-Lite's music turned overtly political as songs touched base with hot topics like the environment, safe sex, and democracy. Towa Towa left the group soon after; rechristened Towa Tei, he released his solo debut, Future Listening, in 1995. Kier and Dmitry, meanwhile, enlisted DJ Ani for 1994's Dewdrops in the Garden, a sensual outing influenced by the growing rave culture. After the release of 1996's remix album Sampladelic Relics and Dancefloor Oddities, Deee-Lite disbanded. ~ Jason Ankeny

I remember listening to Dew Drops on a road trip in 1999 with my then gf , it was one of the best albums I remember . I cant believe it didnt get more recognition, those songs were way better than Groove is in the Heart

This is the only song that combines two loves of punk and rave culture. The awesome Clash sample in this along with Deee-Lite's tasty apples makes nice music.

I remember visiting a good friend in NYC and we all went out to a club called The Red Zone and my friend brought this really cute chick with him, She was funny and kind of quiet. But every time she said somethng it was funny, smart or clever. The band started and my friends girl friend excused herself and jumped up on the stage. It was Lady Miss Kier! They were so new then, but they sounded great and she was an eye magnet! Great night.

I consider myself lucky to have attended 3 Deee-Lite concerts, my favorite being the World Clique show in 1990. Lady Miss Kier was resplendent in her Pucci cat-suited, Fluvog platformed glory; pure musical and fashion magic.

dew drops in the garden is one of the best albums ever

Deee-Lite was just a bit too late on the music scene which contributed to their short live popularity. But I think their lack of true talent and originality is what really killed them as a group with possible potentiality .

All of my teen age year memories circle around these two albums. If I had a dollar for all the s**t I have done with this music playing in the back ground (or in my car) I would be a millionaire (or have multiple DUI's).. A & L..you were there too!

Yes, Lady Kier/Deee-li t e still has it goin on. They need to remind these new groups who taught them. Come back & show them who had original style. Where are you Lady Kier? Miss u.
