[ Song of the Week ] Deee-Lite – “Call Me (Method-One Remix)”

From the album Sampladelic Relics & Dancefloor Oddities (1996)
Original version from Dewdrops in the Garden (1994)

Many wrote off Deee-Lite as a one-hit wonder of the 1990s. But go deeper into their catalog and you’ll find many great ’90s dance tracks. “Groove is in the Heart”, while a good song, isn’t even my favorite of theirs. They had three albums, each one different than the last. After Deee-Lite’s disbandment, a collection of remixes was released, which included this one of a song from their final album.

The sound of this one brings me right back to that time with its unmistakeable 1990s jungle sound (or drum & bass, if you prefer). Synth pads and percussion give me the impression of driving late at night in a brightly lit city.
