With a psychedelic video that was a success worldwide, the song also featured appearances by Q-Tip (from A Tribe Called Quest) and Bootsy Collins. Kier and Dmitry were committed to live performances and toured worldwide with several P-funk luminaries such as Bootsy Collins, Bernie Worrell, Fred Wessely, Gary "Mudbone" Cooper, Mike "kid funkadelic" Hampton and others. Tei appeared in only a handful of live shows. The original members of Deee-lite were: * Supa DJ Dmitry (Dmitri Brill, born 4 June 1964, originally from Kiev, Ukraine) * Lady Miss Kier (Kierin Magenta Kirby, born 15 August 1963, Youngstown, Ohio) * Towa Tei (Dong-hwa Chung, born 7 September 1964, originally from Tokyo, Japan) 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 went in a different musical direction embracing bossa nova as opposed to break beats (appearing only on the remix for "Call Me") while a new member was brought in, DJ On-E.
Deee-Lite disbanded in 1994, just before the release of Dewdrops in the Garden. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
