Deee-Lite’s reputation may rest on only one hit single, but what a hit. “Groove Is in the Heart” defined the summer of 1990 on radio and MTV with its delicious combination of funk, modern dance sheen, and Lady Miss Kier’s smart, sharp diva ways. Add in guest vocals and bass from Bootsy Collins, brass from the original Horny Horns duo of Fred Wesley and Maceo Parker, and a smooth mid-song rap from A Tribe Called Quest’s Q-Tip, and the results sounded as sparkling now as they did then.
