Home late, 10.15, as is my usual time Monday to Friday and feeling I wanted some grooves to relax to I mixed this, and it ends with 2 outstanding remixes one from Gigamesh and Fingerman but before that some classics, albums tracks and lesser known singles.

Deee-Lite was an American house and club/dance group, formed in Williamsburg Brooklyn, New York, United States. The group's best-known single was "Groove Is in the Heart", from their 1990 debut album, World Clique. However, Deee-Lite achieved longer lasting success on the U.S. Billboard Hot Dance Club Play chart, where they scored six number-one hits. 
Formed in 1986, the trio was led by vocalist Lady Miss Kier (born Kier Kirby in Youngstown, Ohio) 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 Lower East Side's drag-queen community (Kier's fondness for Fluevog platform shoes helped the 1970s 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 looping classic "Groove Is in the Heart" (featuring the fluid bass guitar  sampled from a  herbie hancock song and vocals by Bootsy Collins and a rap by Q-Tip of A Tribe Called Quest) and "Power of Love." ( #35 in the top 40 billboard ) Although it didn't win any awards, the band was nominated for 5 MTV awards. With Bootsy Collins as musical Director on the road, the band toured without Towa for 2 sell-out world tours in 1991 opening for Grace Jones , Prince, Kid Creole and the Coconuts, and P-funk. 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 *** and democracy.  Lady Miss Kier won the Environmental Media award by the WWF in 1992 and spoke at Princeton University and Cooper Union in 1993. Kier and Dmitry enlisted DJ Ani for 1994's Dewdrops in the Garden, a sensual outing influenced by the growing rave culture.  After recording the album, the band did one final world tour . With minimal record label support and lack of creative inspiration from Towa, Deee-Lite still managed to have a sell-out world tour.  Consequently, ''Dewdrops in the Garden'' sold more records than Deee-Lite's second release, ''Infinity Within''.  1996 was the release of remixes entitled, Sampladelic Relics & Dancefloor Oddities.
