This week's Seven O Clock sample continues to explore the music of Deee-Lite!

This funky trio is responsible for some of the 1990s best dance tracks.  Their obvious world wide hit "Groove Is In The Heart", overshadowed some of their better works, like this track from their 1990 album World Clique...

Deee-Lite "Who Was That"

This funky little number's awesome beeps come from an interesting source...

Remember these?


Well the funky little clave rythym comes from an old Casio keyboard that was used in studio session by disco pioneer Jimmy Spicer on at track called " The Bubble Bunch"

Check it out!



That funky hook was re-worked years later by Busta Rhymes!
