We gave it an A-

The second solo joint from Deee-Lite?s former DJ showcases the same bounce and song sense that made the group?s ?Groove Is in the Heart? irresistible. Jazzy hip-hop, fizzy house, even Indonesian gamelan inform the mix. But the well-deployed guests make it count. Among the best moments: primo raps by Biz Markie and Bahamadia, and a bossa-nova cover of Hall & Oates? ?Private Eyes? that coolly whups the original.
