the music videos : deee-lite
Wednesday, November 18th, 2009
Pay attention, if you want to see a dance floor fill up in the blink of an eye, simply play this track. I am still working on a mathematical theorem that will prove Deee-lite may have been the single most fun band to come out of the 90s. Formed by a trio of New York DJs and club personalities, it was this song, which includes cameos from funk legend Bootsy Collins, and a Tribe Called Quest’s Q-Tip, that catapulted Deee-Lite into the international party stratosphere. Notable for its innovative, stylish video and memorable band members that were well ahead of their time. (If you don’t think Lady Gaga read a few chapters from Lady Miss Kier’s playbook you are fooling yourself.) Groove is in the Heart became a club and party track of legendary status. Though the members of Deee-lite eventually went their separate ways they left a lasting impact on music, dance, style, and aesthetics that are still rippling outwards and felt today. And because I still have overwhelming crush on Lady Miss Kier left over from my adolescence, here are a few bonus videos.
