Deee-Lite and the best show ever.
Deee-Lite was a House and Club/Dance group formed in New York City. Their best known single is "Groove Is in the Heart" from their 1990 debut, World Clique. However, Deee-Lite acheived larger success on the U.S. Billboard Hot Dance Club Play chart. Deee-Lite scored six #1 hits on the chart.
The members of Deee-lite were:
"Super DJ Dmitri" (Dmitri Brill, born June 4, 1964 originally from Kiev, Ukraine)
"Lady Miss Kier" (Kieren M. Kirby, born August 15, 1963 in Youngstown, Ohio)
"Jungle DJ Towa Tei" (Dong-hwa Chung, born September 7, 1964 originally from Tokyo)
Brill and Kirby had an ongoing romantic relationship which ended prior to the release of their 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 On-E.
Deee-Lite disbanded shortly after the release of Dewdrops in the Garden. Tei has recorded several albums as a solo artist and Kier and Dmitri are successful club DJs.
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 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. Under California law, she is required to pay over $600,000 in legal fees to cover SEGA's expenses in defending their case.
