When one makes mention of Deee-Lite, the 90's house-funk trio of
Lady Miss Kier, and DJs Dmitry and Towa Tei, invariably their
Billboard smash single "Groove Is In The Heart" (Off their 1990
studio debut World Clique) will come up, and for good reason. With
its Herbie Hancock-sampling bassline, some classic rhymes from
Q-Tip, and guest vocals by Parliament-Funkadelic legend Bootsy
Collins, the song became an indelible classic of 90s music, a
massive commercial hit for Deee-lite, (Reaching #4 on the Billboard
Hot 100) and is widely considered one of the greatest dance songs
of all time. Although a massive success for the group, "Groove Is In
The Heart" led to some pigeonholing from critics and reviewers,
who had specific expectations for future records.
Rather than deliver more of the same free-wheeling, breezy dance
music of World Clique, Deee-lite took a more politically-minded
approach with their second album, spurred largely by front-woman
Lady Miss Kier, who had a lengthy history of political activism prior
to forming the group. 1992's Infinity Within rendered several
Dance-chart hit singles, but was not as commercially or critically
lauded as its forebear.
Deee-lite were undaunted by their change in commercial fortune,
regrouping with the addition of junglist DJ Ani, replacing the absent
Towa Tei to record their third record. 1994's Dewdrops In The
Garden was the result of their efforts, which struck a remarkable
balance between the celebratory grooves of World Clique, and the
social justice-driven Infinity Within. Lady Miss Kier had done a lot of
world-traveling in the time between albums, and the material in
Dewdrops was a reflection of her experiences, applying a spirit of
global togetherness to their house-funk grooves.
Regrettably, Dewdrops In The Garden was not a commercial
success, yet it still managed to render its share of #1 Dance Chart
singles; the atmospheric techno bounciness of "Bring Me Your
Love", and the spacious funk-house track "Call Me." Though
Deee-lite would disband soon after Dewdrops In The Garden's
release, the record remains an unheralded favorite among dance
music devotees for its coupling infectiously bright, and soulful
melodies, with banging dance-floor grooves, and unshakably
optimistic vibes.
