Formed 1986. Disbanded 1996
Deee-Lite was an American house and club/dance music group, formed in New York City. The group's best-known single was "Groove Is in the Heart", which was released from their 1990 debut album, World Clique, and was a Top 40 hit in multiple countries. That song notably featured funk musician Bootsy Collins, a fan of the group. Deee-Lite scored six number-one hits on the U.S. Billboard Hot Dance Club Play chart over their history. Upon their break-up, the individual members have worked independently as DJs, with Lady Miss Kier regarded as a style icon by publications such as Vogue.
