Dario G are a dance music group formed in Crewe, England, UK in 1996.
In 1997, they hit #2 on the UK Singles Chart with "Sunchyme", a song built around a sample of "Life In A Northern Town", a Top 10 hit for The Dream Academy in 1985, and hit #5 with the follow-up "Carnaval de Paris", relating to the 1998 football World Cup in France. "Sunchyme" also hit #1 on the American Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart in that year. A less successful version of "Carnaval de Paris" was released in 2002, for the World Cup in South Korea and Japan.
In March 2000 their song "Voices" featuring vocals from Vanessa Quiñones, produced by Peter Oxendale, was used for the film "The Beach". The track was taken from their album "Sunmachine", and was released as 4 different CD singles after the movie became a success.
Dario G's music, the song "Voices" in particular, is frequently used as background music on British TV shows.
Dario G is currently working on his upcoming third album which is set for release in 2012.
