Classic of the week: Paul Oakenfold - Southern Sun

August 19, 2012
In 2002, one particular sentence ruled the dance floors: “You write the rules, I play along.” Coming from a track that has withstand the test of time, it still brings up great memories a decade later. We’re talking about ‘U Write the Rules’, from Young Parisians.

"Piece by piece... I release..." The legendary words to one of the biggest classics in EDM history. An all-time favourite to many, and a timeless track that just gets you, again and again. Of course, we’re talking about Paul Oakenfold’s ‘Southern Sun’.

It’s been a decade since it rushed into our systems, conquered the hearts of millions and was brilliantly remixed by Tiësto. The mesmerizing vocals, hitting in with each word, belong to New Zealand singer/songwriter Carla Werner, and give the track an unrivalled power. ‘Southern Sun’ was part of Oakenfold’s 2002 ‘Bunkka’ album, released around the same time that Paul made his move to the US.

Last year, featured on the ‘We Are Planet Perfecto Vol.1’ compilation, a new and pumping remix of this classic was released, by Paul Webster. If you prefer the Tiësto remix, head back in EDM history and relive those memories in the Trance Top 1000 Spotify playlist!
