Worldwide Groove Corporation's New EDM Release Is Innovative and Diverse
With styles ranging from melodic dubstep to chillout to deep house, Worldwide Groove Corporation put out 5 completely different versions of their newest song "Make Me Free" on their new maxi-single.
“It can be challenging to reinvent something that you’ve become so familiar with in one form,” says Kurt Goebel, programmer and producer for Worldwide Groove Corporation. "But early on we felt this song could both exist as an upbeat electronic dance track, and also at half tempo in a slow chillout style, and from there we branched off into other interpretations."
Reinvention is something Worldwide Groove Corporation became known for with their reconstructions of well loved jazz standards on their debut downtempo electronic album “Chillodesiac Lounge, vol.1: Fever,” which topped the charts on the XM Chill channel after its release. They also showcased this skill in their imaginative chillout remixes of classic country songs like "Ring of Fire".
Worldwide Groove Corporation's own renditions of "Make Me Free" are the "Black Orchid Deep House Mix", "Hot Azalea Electro Mix", "Water Lily Chillout Mix", and contrastingly the "Sweet Jasmine Acoustic Mix" featuring a unique vocal performance over piano and solo cello. Rounding out the musical collection, up and coming EDM producer Portarius adds the "Portarius Melodic Dubstep Mix".
"The Year of the Groove has been a monumental challenge for us," says Ellen Tift. "We've been constantly busy, always preparing the next music release and promoting the last one on top of our regular music production work we do for clients, so I feel a tremendous sense of both accomplishment and relief to be at this point." As well they should. In all, Worldwide Groove Corporation put out 22 new tracks in the Year of the Groove, much to the delight of their growing fan base. "It's been a satisfyling labor of love," says Tift. "I'd do it all again in a heartbeat."
