If you think of Deee-Lite as funky with a twist of somethin' eighties- THINK AGAIN!!! This album is INCREDIBLE! Everyone I play it for wants to know who it is and how to get it. It's mostly DRUM & BASS remixes of good melodies with GREAT BEATS and excellent vocal samples from the orginals. If you like ANY techno and don't know what to buy or where to start- here's the place! I have listened to this CD so much I have had to replace it twice. Take me up on it- and if you don't like it you can replace my scratched copy! LOL.

It's your basic remix album, just good. I'm gonna guess casual fans can pass on this, and go for the hits disc. However, true fans of Deee-lite, or fans of electronica/dance music, may expierience a "Mind Melt" upon listening. None of the originals are really improved on, they're just much different. Some are nearly unrecognizable, some are slowed down or sped up quite a bit. This is surely full of good beats though, good samples, and it's a good 69 minutes long. If you're forever waiting on that Lady Miss Kier solo album, you know you need to pick this up.

Since there are 19 tracks, I'm just gonna go down the list and give a little opinion about each to save time:
Frenchapella - an edit of Lady Kier's french accent speech in "What Is Love" very cool and flows right into...
How Do You Say...Love - which is a fierce club mix of "What Is Love" but with a totally different feel and beat. It never brings you down.
Music Selector Is The Soul Reflector - A fabulous remix that could possibly even be better than the album version...possibly.
D.M.T. - A fun mix not unlike the original version, but it is a little different. It's fun, though, and that's what Deee-Lite is all about.
Mind Melt - original version. And yes, you too can "Move, groove...you can mind melt!"
Call Me - my least favorite track on here. It's incredibly monotonous and boring, and although six-and-a-half minutes isn't really a long time for a remix, this one just seems to never end.
Ozone Layer - a funky whacked out remix. Much better than the album version, imo, and there's a fun jungle beat halfway through.
Goodbeatapella - Very cool acapella of a verse of "Good Beat"
Good Beat - Not a very original mix, kind of - "blah"
Say Ahh... - a very trippy and fun mix, this one was definitely intended for the minds of ravers, it's mind-blowing (in a good way)
I Won't Give Up - a very cool remix of a cool song. Doesn't surpass the original, but gives it a fun new flavor.
Won't You Listen...- The intro to the song "E.S.P" - faboo!
Groove Is In The Heart - a nice interpetation of the original, breathes *some* new life into an old song.
Heart Be Still - another exciting remix, one of the stand-out tracks on the CD.

I usually hate remix albums- this was a sweet surprize. Very contemporary, & if you notice it was in made 1996, a time when drum & bass, jungle was barely gaining in massive (unfortunately for all ex-ravers) popularity. Most of the songs sound better than even the original! Well, except the songs from World Clique, both versions are yummy. Very hippy & trippy. *_*

This was the first CD of Deee-lite I ever bought and liked it right away. It's a techno, beat-driven remix album, but it still maintains the funky grooviness deee-lite is known for, in fact it's better than their "real" albums. Sampladelic Relics & Dancefloor Oddities carries a more ubdated techno sound, but manages to capture the fun soul of Deee-lite very well. The songs flow into eachother nicely and are occasionally preceded by short tracks, for example the slam poetry of Kier on the track "Mind Melt". Some of the mixes are styled in lyrical song fashion, including "Groove is in the Heart", "I Had a Dream I Was Falling Thru a Hole in the Ozone Layer", and the VERY well done "I Won't Give Up". If you're looking for a fun album with psychedelic soul, this is a good one to choose.

If you are a Deee-lite fan waiting for another release, then "Sampladelic" will definitely tide you over until that day arrives. As the title suggests, it is samples of the band's previous recordings pleasingly strung together in a continuous roller coaster of beats, rhythms and trippy psychedlic sounds accompanied by the sultry voice Lady Kier, whose mere utterance compels one to surrender to the beat and completely go wild. Be warned however, that you should not listen to this CD first and then attempt to listen to the earlier works, because you are bound to be disappointed. Many of the tracks on "Sampladelic" sound better than the originals, so don't spoil your fun by listening to the band in reverse. Experience "World Clique", "Infinity Within" and "Dewdrops in the Garden" before turning your mind and body over to "Sampladelic"

Deee-Lite made 3 or 4 CDs and not a lot of remixes... it wasn't until Sampladelic Relics & Dancefloor Oddities that I was made aware of them. `Groove Is In the Heart' is still my favorite... with a lyric or two that I didn't hear before. Love it.
