Product Description

Product Description

Warner Music. 1998.

Amazon.ca

Sunmachine is an interesting mix; interesting because it's about equal parts appealing and forgettable. "Sunchyme," which opens and closes the CD, sounds rather like something you'd hear in a dance club, only more cheerful, and "Carnaval de Paris" contains some odd juxtapositions (did I hear bagpipes in there?). The oddly titled "Be My Friend" has some vaguely Middle Eastern touches, and "Malaway" is based around something that may or may not be a didjeridu. However, if one of your criteria for music is that you remember it after the CD's stopped playing, you'll probably want to give Sunmachine a miss. While a pleasant listen, not much of it is memorable. --Genevieve Williams

Dario G is a British Dj that got some attention in 98, with especially "Synchyme" and Carneval de Paris" the song for the football world cup, a very good song with a nice melody and a mix of diffrent instuments, drums, and a changing tempo. It was a perfect choise for the world cup with so many countries in, the song could be identified with many nations. Many of those songs have been used before "Sunchyme" was based on "Life in a Northern Town' from the Dream Academy's and "Carneval de Paris" the song from world cup 1998 was also using samples from another song i think. The title track "Sunmachine" was a decent, dancable club song too, but there the fun ends. Most of the other songs are forgettable and not that good either. "peaches" sounds like a typical club song. "Malaway" is slightly better with a voice saying something i don't get. I haven't heard much of Dario G since but i still hear "Carneval de Paris" in diffrent occasions.

Genevieve Williams is offbase April 1 2002
By Matthew Neil - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Whoever Genevieve Williams is, she is totally offbase in her editorial review of Sunmachine. This cd is a brilliant compilation of many styles of music. It is a fabulous adventure for the listener. "Carnival" is currently one of my favorite songs. Having studied instrumentation, style, and composition, I would have never imagined a mix of Spanish trumpets, bagpipe/drumcore, and electronic music being combined into a spectacular dance number. And as for Genevieve's remark that little music is memorable from this cd, after only one hearing, I was drawn to listen repeatedly because melodies, rhythms, and unique instrumentations were stuck in my head. I HIGHLY recommend this cd to anyone.

Effortlessly enjoyable Sept. 2 2001
By J. Lyda - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I didn't own this CD a week ago, and now I can't get it out of my head. On first listening I realized I have heard much of this before, on TV and some commercials. And the opener, Sunchyme, is a beautiful remake of 'Life in a Northern Town' from the Dream Academy's 1985 album, honest to the original, but even more joyous and totally uplifting. I've struggled through all types of music in my life, always looking for those nuggets of good feeling and emotion, and sometimes trying to like music that wasn't touching my heart and soul. I don't think I've ever stumbled on a release which so fully expresses what fun music can sound like. Not hard at all. Just turn it on and it will turn you on.

Dario G's Sunmachine is brilliant!!! Nov. 4 2001
By jeff diehl - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I first heard the opening track from this CD(Sunchyme)on the radio. I called the radio station to get the name of the artist and I went and bought the cd. I truly love this cd and I find it to be a great cd for the music lover no matter what music you like. It has wonderful beats and you can hear the passion of the artists through their creations on this album. It's one of my favorites and I recommend it to anyone. Go out and buy this cd, sit, and enjoy!!

amazing Dec 27 2004
By Ivo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I had this cd a long, long time. It is still in my collection of top cds. This cd introduced me to edm very early, I later moved on to the trance genre, but these songs are unforgetable. If you enjoy listening to uplifting tracks and dont mind a bit of a mix up in your track selection, then this cd is for you. Speaks for itself when one song was a massive signle, another the theme to the fifa world cup, and another the theme song for a movie, all this on one cd. Despite what some people say, the other tracks on the cd are very enjoyable and offer something different without the constant repetition you will find today. Josephll "Josephll", all i have to say is that you are quite wrong with your facts, and before you review this learn about the producers so you dont mislead people, yes there is an s there, seeing as there is more then one producer. As a matter of fact, Dario G is not a DJ either, then again its more then one person - Dario G are actually three young men from the north of England and Wales. Paul Spencer, Scott Rosser, and Stephen Spencer. No harm intended, just wanted to get it clear. Overall Amazing cd, 5 from 5, incredible songs, none of which sound the same as the other (with the exception of the last track which blends them all together in a nice downtempo mix). 5/5, and I highly recomend people go buy this whether you like trance or classical or whatever, im sure you will grow to love this cd.

Not your typical Dance Album Sept. 28 2006
By Jonathan White - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Dario G, a production team from North England, craft highly amusing Dance pop that is at times trite due to repetativeness. Though there are some definate good moments on this album.

Sunchyme- A track that certainly lives up to its name while setting the pace for the entire album. A bright house gem built around a sample from The Dream Academy's "Life in A Northern Town"

Carnival De Paris- Quite perhaps the most unusual House song ever produced. Whoever heard of using bagpipes in a dance song? An uplifting charmer one might use to cover an international competition (oh wait it was).

Sunmachine- This song takes a stab at making David Bowie's "Memory of a Free Festival" from Space Oddity a bit more..um memorable and succeeds. Bowie liked the song so much he gave the band the original demo of the song to sample. Add to that a piano, organ and a flute(played by Bowie's producer no less) and you have a track that's not only memoorable but 50 times better than the original Bowie record.

Voices- Possibly the only redeeming quality about the Leonardo DiCaprio film The Beach. A beautiful voice over an even more beautiful melody.

Be My Friend- Filler but beautiful vocals.

Peaches- Enigma-esque downtempo melody combined with a tech-house rythem.

Malaway- Tech house with a tribal chant. Amusing but not memorable.

Revolution- A protest House song. Hmmm

Voices- A stipped down version of the track.

End of the Beginning- The album comes to a close with an early version of Sunmachine. The David Bowie album version of the sample being played over an ambient Sunchyme. A bit long but a nice way to end things.

Overall, this album proves that the boys of Dario G are have an eve for producing, but not every song is memorable.
