Deee-Lite was a house and club/dance group formed in New York Citymarker, USAmarker. Its best-known single is "Groove Is in the Heart", from its 1990 debut album, World Clique. However, Deee-Lite achieved longer lasting success on the U.S. Billboard Hot Dance Club Play chart, where it scored six number-one hits.

Career

Brill and Kirby had an ongoing romantic relationship which ended prior to the release of the group's third album, Dewdrops in the Garden. Also prior to that release, Tei left the band (appearing only on the track "Call Me") and was replaced with DJ Ani. Even with a roster change, minimal record label support and growing tension between separated couple Brill and Kirby, Deee-Lite still managed to tour for a year after the release of "Dewdrops in the Garden". Consequently, "Dewdrops in the Garden" sold more records than Deee-Lite's second release, "Infinity Within".

The tune "Groove is In the Heart" featured lyrics from Q-Tip of A Tribe Called Quest, and bass guitar and vocals by Bootsy Collins.

Since his exit from the group, Tei has recorded several albums as a solo artist and since Deee-Lite's disbanding Kier, Dmitri and Ani have maintained successful club DJ careers.

In early 2003, Lady Miss Kier initiated a lawsuit against Sega corporation for allegedly stealing her former persona and using it as the basis of a character named Ulala in the video game Space Channel 5, after they had originally asked her to participate in the development of the product and she declined. In 2006 the court ruled against Lady Miss Kier's claim. In 2008, her single "Groove is in The Heart" was licensed for use a Sega video game Samba de Amigo for the Wii console, ironically appearing in a stage featuring Ulala.
