When one thinks of what goes on in the Nashville music scene, rarely does the concept of vibey mid-tempo chillout music come to mind. But that is exactly what Ellen Tift and Kurt Goebel of Worldwide Groove Corporation are up to on their nights and weekends. Some might say they would be misplaced in the Music City, but this music production team have recently emerged as one of the few downtempo duos in town.
Worldwide Groove Corporationâ€™s first independent musical endeavor is taking the shape of a downtempo chillout project featuring ageless jazz standards completely reinvented into a collection of modern electrolounge styles. This project combines sultry drum grooves, ambient textures, and electronica flavors with a remix approach to the smooth vocal performances.
The track â€œTangerineâ€ showcases the wonderfully quirky voice of former Universal Records artist Fleming McWilliams of Fleming & John over a pseudo bossa rhythm and fun vintage organ samples. Other songs like â€œThe Man I Loveâ€ and â€œMy Funny Valentineâ€, and the title track "Fever" which includes a French rap verse, take on a more sexy mid-tempo groove, giving the listener the feeling that theyâ€™re either sipping a martini after hours in a vibey NY club, or are about to get lucky.
