Deee-Lite – “Groove Is In The Heart (Altered Tapes Rework)”

Altered Tapes

Early ’90s dance music is pretty sacred to me.  Probably because I grew up in that era and so many of those tunes soundtracked parties and whatnot for a very impressionable time in my life.  Maybe that’s why I generally turn up my nose to any remixes or rewerks of these classic tunes, some of which we’ve already collected for you in an effort to educate.  Sometimes though, I’m willing to let down my guard a bit and give something a chance.  This Altered Tapes rework of Dee-Lite’s classic “Groove Is In The Heart” makes me extremely glad a did.  This rework adds a Latin funk flavor that I’m sure b-boys everywhere are going to eat up.  I would hope DJs will, too, as this original always cracks off in my DJ sets.  This is definitely going to get some serious burn from me in the cut.  This flip is FUN.
