On my turntable: Deee-Lite - World Clique

There's a meme in the blogosphere today where folks are identifying "A song that you can dance to".

My own personal greatest booty shaker entered my life in 1990, and nothing has been the same since. The song was "Groove is in the Heart" by Super DJ Dmitri, Towa Tei, and the ever delicious Lady Miss Kier, collectively known as Deee-Lite. Back in the day, I was lucky to see Deee-Lite on their support tour for World Clique (1990) performing at Glam Slam, the relatively short-lived Minneapolis club partially owned by Prince.

Almost 20 years later Rhino records has re-issued World Clique on great sounding, house-shaking, booty-licious vinyl.  If you were like most music consumers who bought this album in the 90's you owned it on CD. My tip of the day is to find the LP and get ready to rediscover how awesomely timeless and unique the day-glo dance-tacular named Deee-Lite truly were.

Dig it, baby.
