the new Das Pop single (with as B-side a users mix). The radio mix of this song from "I Love" was done by Wim Tops & Peter Revalk of the recently "deceased" Wizards of Ooze.

New songs you could pick to enter the top:

- Zornik "It's so unreal" . After the success of the debut single "Love Affair" (now at number 4 in this list), Zornik released this new song, which is doing equally well in the Afrekening etc.
- Automatic Buffalo "All men are equal" . Gorki has been kicked out by Sony, but this isn't letting Luc de Vos's spirits down. He has even started a brand new side-project with the entire Ashbury Faith, and a first EP is out in the open. The project is also touring, in conjuction with Axl Pelemans' project "Camden".
- B. "Waiting" : B. = Boy, the sound-technician of the scene in Ghent (Derek & Vis, Tony, Das Pop ...), who has now released a first EP "Wait & See" of his own, made with Yves Meersschaert (the Vis from Derek & Vis).
- Zita Swoon "Banana Queen" : the most funky track of the album "Life= A Sexy Sanctuary" has now been released a single. There's also a maxi-CD out, with a number of remixes (Tom Tom Club, CJ Bolland, Praga Khan ...)
- Filip Kowlier "Welgemeende" : "welgemeende" means "heartfelt" or so, but in fact the lines go "een welgemeende fuck you, een welgemeende kust mijn kloten" (a heartfelt fuck you, a heartfelt kiss my nuts). The song is out on single (with the previous promo-only "kwestie van organisatie" as the b-side), taken from the forthcoming album "ocharme ik", this rapper-turned-singer/songwriter from 't Hof van Commerce is preparing.
- Nathalie Chabas "Oh La La La" : This might well become a collector's item (who's going to buy it?): one of the last Big Brother inhabitants has thrown herself onto the music market as well, joining Kloot Per W on a version of the TC Matic classic.
- The Dill Brothers "Bloody Mary" : This ska-reggae-afro outfit that is currently spicing up many a summer-festival in Flanders, has released a second single from their 2nd and versatile album "Remedy".
- El Fish & Roland "I've seen that face before (libertango)" . El Fish are currently touring with "musical adventurer in heart & soul" Roland and have the album "Waterbottle" out in the shops. This is the surprise cover of the song you know from the Grace Jones version.
- Ghinzu "R2D3" , a new single from the album "Electronic Jacuzzi", but quite different from the version that is on the album: the single is a remix done by Das Pop.
- Reverend Pimp "Heroes in Slippers" . In fact, I don't know jack-ass about Reverend Pimp, but can we ever have enough Beck-like slacker pop? You can get the free full-length MP3 of it on the site of Kinky Star.
- Sue Daniels "Constant (raving)" . This was already included in the suggestions of last month, but since no-one bothered to vote for it, might as well retry. Sue Daniels definitely a young talent, backed on his debut-CD "Paris" by Mauro, Cinérex, Rudy Trouvé and such.
