The cynic within me shudders at the use of 'groove' anywhere in modern music terminology, so it was with some anxiety that I approached this production by Kurt Goebel for 'Worldwide Groove Corporation'.  Many excellent worship songs are present, albeit in remixed form, and this is indeed to greater or worse effect.  Some receive a basic, house beat treatment, whil others have more subtlety to the production, with nice acoustic samples and touches mixed in with the clumsier addition of beats. I can't help but feel a little let down by the quality of the production, as songs that could quite easily have lent themselves to funkier or more 'uplifting' club versions have been clumsily or even cheesily remixed. I look forward to more discerning challengers!

Absolutely shocking. Awful music. I am from the dance scene and this makes me cringe. Secular listeners' ears would fall ill.

Please can someone make some real dance music? The closest I heard was Ben Cantelon's Dance remix soul survivor CD.
