Album Review

Deee-Lite is often seen as a one-hit wonder, albeit a brilliant one hit; the phenomenal "Groove Is in the Heart" is one of those great, giddy pleasures that defined a time and transcended it. The thing is, that wasn't the end of the Deee-Lite story, even if it was undeniably their chart pinnacle, because their dizzy, ironically hippified second-summer-of-love dance music was overflowing with delights: sonic thrills from DJ Towa Tei and DJ Dmitry and clever sexiness from Lady Miss Kier. This was most evident on their mini-classic debut, World Clique, but their next two albums had their merits, and all of them are featured on Rhino's fine 20-track collection, The Very Best of Dee-Lite. This understandably relies very heavily on the debut, with seven selections, grazing over Infinity Within with four cuts before settling in for no less than nine songs from the underrated 1994 swan song, Dewdrops in the Garden. This doesn't have the sustained thrills of World Clique, but it does make a convincing case that the group was consistently entertaining and inventive, thereby winding up as a first-class summary of thrilling band.

Customer Reviews

Great songs but not all of the good ones.

I'll pick and choose off of this one but am hoping that they get "World Clique" on here in the near future. We want World Clique!

Just Wondering Why itunes does not carry the "World Clique" album

This is a great collection of songs highlighting the eclectic music Deee-Lite made during their brief career 1986 -1994. Even though Kier still tours and Dj's, as do Towa /Dimitry. The magic that came together when they performed as Deee-Lite will be one for the history books of ground-breaking pop/dance/house/jazz/disco/electro/trance/funk/hip-hop/r&b. Ahead of the game is an understatement. There will never be another band like Deee-Lite. Itunes should put the entire " World Clique" album here and include all the great singles, mixes, and remixes of all the classic Deee-Lite Songs. THERE IS A SPECIAL PLACE IN MY HEART FOR DEEE-LITE!

Good Beat

I first heard Deee-light a few months ago when our jazz class chose "Good Beat" out of several songs to dance to. I soon feel in love with the sound and looked it up on the internet via the lyrics. Now I have 2 cds and play them a lot on my ipod, they're great!
