Description: ” Sunchyme ” is by Dario G, the British dance music trio. The song was written by Paul Spencer, Scott Rosser, Stephen Spencer, Nick Laird-Clowes and Gilbert Gabriel.
The song was released as a single by the record label Warner in 1997 and taken as the lead sing from their first Album ” Sunmachine “.
” Sunchyme ” heavily samples the The Dream Academy’s 1985 number 7 Billboard Hot 100 hit single ” Life in a Northern Town “.
Unusually for musicians of this type, Dario G actually asked the original owners of the work if they could use the sample, the members of The Dream Academy agreed verbally.
Clearance for use of the sample was granted as the record label Warner had both artists on their books.
Out of the three copies that they originally pressed, two were sent on to The Dream Academy and the third sent to the British radio station KISS 102 located in Manchester England.
Once KISS 102 had given ” Sunchyme ” airplay, national UK broadcaster the BBC wanted it for their own playlist, soon the song was being played on national radio in the United Kingdom.
The song became a commercial success for Dario G, in the United States the song entered the Billboard Hot Dance Club songs Chart and climbed to reach number 1, the song spent a total of 13 weeks in the chart.
Outside of the United States the song found its way into the charts of Australia and New Zealand, in Australia the song reached number 22 and stayed on the country’s chart for 20 weeks, New Zealand the song peaked at number 4 and stayed on the chart for 12 weeks.
Also ” Sunchyme ” was a hit across Europe making the top ten in Germany, Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Ireland and Switzerland.
In the United Kingdom the song entered the chart and climbed to number 2, there the song spent 7 weeks in the top ten and a total of 18 weeks on the chart.
While ” Sunchyme ” is credited to Dario G as a trio, later they went their separate ways. Now original member Paul Spencer goes by the name Dario G as a solo artist.
