With all the excitement surrounding Electrical Storm, we’d almost forget to mention that Paul Oakenfold has once again forcefed a a U2 song to the E’d out generation. At the Creamfield’s festival in England in August, he spinned a new remix of Staring at the Sun. The set was broadcast live on BBC radio 1. On the BBC website, the song is labelled: ‘ U2 – staring at the sun – (
white label)’ .
Here’s evidence of Mr Perfecto’s “craft”, in real audio. It sounds perfectly mid-Nineties to these ears. Note the vocal, it’s a live track, most likely Popmart Rotterdam.
