Back in the days when eurodance was one of the most popular genres of dance music, Dutch big room and electro house duo W&W were still teenagers. Yet, Willem van Hanegem and Ward van der Harst obviously loved the sound of their beloved youth enough to revive it by dropping their latest release ‘God Is A Girl’, which is your typical eurodance track from the year 2002 by German act Groove Coverage. W&W‘s version of the track is likely to become an absolutely festival banger this Spring, due to its catchy, melodic vocals and the hint of nostalgia that it will undoubtedly bring back to party crowds all across the globe.
The eurodance genre originated mainly in Germany and really started to grow big throughout the rest of Europe too in the early to mid 1990’s. Think of acts like Haddaway, Culture Beat, Jam & Spoon and La Bouche. Their eurodance sound remained popular even into the new millennium, but where many of the once popular acts have disappeared from the music business by now, German act Groove Coverage is still very active today. The dance band, which consists of Axel Konrad, DJ Novus, lead singer Melanie Munch (“Mell”) and stage performer Verena Rehm released a total of 4 albums and sold over 13 million records worldwide, making them one of the most successful acts in German dance music history.
W&W first dropped their reworked version of ‘God Is A Girl’ for the first time already in December of last year, when they played it at Hardwell‘s World’s Biggest Guestlist event in Mumbai, in light of his United We Are foundation. It was pretty well-received by the crowd, so the popular Dutch duo decided to release their electro house version of the classic eurodance anthem.
