Of course a warning is in place here : if you didn't like the original track
"My Bond with You and Your Planet : Disco!"(and
maybe it is even "chique" to say such a thing, now that the song has
climbed up in the Belgian commercial charts !!), you probably will find this CD
7 times nothing. If however you were touched by the regular single or the CD-version,
this remix-CD will offer you 7 new and amusing viewpoints on the song.
The remixes vary from complete cut-ups of the original (the Dewaele
Bro's only keep some of the yells and dance the electric boogie on a chemical
beat) to faithfull reproductions of the original (the "Heaven Hotel"-remix
by Stuyven & Trouvé is nothing
but the album version sent through a few echo chambers and with a bit of feedback).
The meeting between Zita Swoon and Starflam
doesn't bring any particular chemistry : the rapcrew limits their contribution
to a slightly changed beat, a number of "ah ha's" and a little rap ("Mais
du fond de la forme, La Sonora transforme, Zita Swoon sort énorme, informe
- conforme, de Liège à Anvers un front, La sonora pour le remix,
Voici, c'est bon"). Still, this is the version of the song that - on
its own - would stand the biggest chance of survival.
Stef Kamil's homebrew versie is very funky, but until the clever discovery of
the old-witch voice there are too many off-tune organs wandering about in the
The home-remix by Tom Pintens is spacey and
rather funny, that by mixmaster Mac Bart puts the emphasis on beats and basses
and delivers the trance-effect it is aiming for ("up down turn around
hit the ground come about").
The "Live version" is quite fast, but it is a dissapointment to find
out that it is not one of the famous "disco medley's" they have been
playing (at the Werchter-festival for instance they almost made a tent explode
with a series of old disco-tunes). I guess we'll have to wait for a live-album
to get that ??
And your opinion?
Did I get it all wrong, or was I spot-on ? Do you want to share your opinion about

This album in the press:
I haven't read any cd-reviews of this. Could be due to the fact it is no CD.
The lowest price is in yellow, the highest in red. This price comparison doesn't
take things into account like deduction of shipping expenses when ordering more
than 1 cd, bonus points, differences in guarantees ... Shipping prices are those
for customers in Belgium.
Have you seen this record elsewhere on the net, do you own an online-CD-shop
with Belgian products in it, or if there's something wrong with my calculations
: let me know.
