artist / song
Ozark Henry "Rescue".
After his jazz-like excursion in the project Sunzoo Manley, Piet Goddaer is returning to his main band Ozark Henry. The prelude to his 3rd full CD "Birth Marks" was the single "Rescue", going strong.
Zornik "It's so unreal".
After the success of the debut single "Love Affair", Koen Buysse & co released this new song, which is doing equally well in the Afrekening etc.
Hooverphonic "Jackie Cane"
Hooverphonic finally released the most catchy song from the "Magnificent Tree" album as a single. All the previous ones got to the top of this list, will this one also?

Mauro "Finish it all off (with love)" Mauro keeps on releasing songs from his debut album "Songs from a Bad hat" at a great rate. There's already a new one (see the suggestions below)
Zita Swoon "The Banana Queen" :
"Hey My Life is OK" is the new chant. The most funky track of the album "Life= A Sexy Sanctuary" is gliding off, but there's now a new single (see suggestions below)
Eden "Push Up"
Eden seem to be reasonably unaffected by the departure of Roos van Acker, as they have found a very resembling replacement girl in Nathalie. See the MP3-section for a free version of this song.
Monza "De Ogen Van Jenny"
With the long-awaited debut album "Van god Los" in stores now, this is the third single of the new group of ex-Noordkaap Stijn Meuris.
Yum "Day One"
Day One takes the bation in the relay of Yum-singles (already the 4th one of their debut album "Monokid"). The single version is a remix done by Ronald Prent (Scorpions, Faith No More, Iron Maiden, Def Leppard, Rammstein, Guano Apes ...)
Dear Liza "Let Me Know"
Dear Liza is the band of female singer Els Artois, who, although they were still participating in Stubru's demo poll earlier this year, are now already counted among the "revelations" of this year. "Let me know" is the 2nd single on Ars.



Camden "Black Paper - Black Ink"
Camden is a new band/project put together by Axl Peleman (Ashbury Faith, Angelico, Paranoiacs, Automatic Buffalo ...). "Black Paper - Black Ink" is the debut single, the album is called "Miscellaneous".



Chitlin' Fooks "Not Enough Tears"
Pascal Deweze (of Metal Molly) and Carol Van Dijk (of the dutch Bettie Serveert) gathered up some friends to play mellow country songs, and do so splendidly on the debut album "Chitlin' Fooks".
New songs you could pick to enter the top:
  • Raymond van het Groenewoud "Keineig (verliefd op haar)"
    "Een jongen uit Schaarbeek" is the name of the 18th (or so) CD of Raymond van het Groenewoud, and "Keineig" (translated that would be "oh I'm so totally in love with her") could be about the producer of the album, Christine Verschorren, who happens to be the curren Mss. van het Groenewoud.
  • Zita Swoon "My heart belongs to someone else (I wish it was mine)"
    After the exuberant "Banana Queen" single, Zita Swoon are shifting their gears down with this more subdued and beautiful song, and a CD that was recorded live in the Jet Studio's for TMF.
  • Starflam "Amnésie Internationale"
    The album "Survivant" has just gone to "gold" status her in Belgium (+15,000 copies), quite unprecedented for a Belgian rap crew. And now there's a second single with a dope video-clip, Zap Mama singing, and some hard-hitting lyrics.
  • Mauro "Everybody's Friend"
    The rate at which PIAS keeps releasing singles of the album "Songs from a Bad hat" is dizzying, but they are absolutely right: if it takes that to convince everybody it's a truly great album, than it's worth every effort. Co-singing on this track is Carol Van Dijk of the Dutch band Bettie Serveert, who you can also hear on the Chitlin' Fooks song currently in the list.
  • Laïs "Le Grand Vent"
    Laïs have just returned from a small trip to China (in the footsteps of Eddy Double You), and now the ladies are releasing a new single. It's an a-capella coöperation with Gabriel Yacoub (Malicorne, the author of the song) and a possible forebode of an acoustic/live album.
  • Mint "Half-Lit Cigarette"
    Currently touring with Monza, Mint is a relatively new band from Limburg who finally are grabbing some attention (read: airplay on Studio Brussel) with this self-released single.
  • Clouseau "Ik Geef me Over"
    The brothers Wauters are not throwing the towel, but they are surrendering on their new single, the forerunner of a new Clouseau album that can be expected later on this month.
  • Praga Khan & Axelle Red "Falling"
    Maurice Engelen and Fabienne Demal have coöperated on the soundtrack of a new Belgian Film, and "Falling" is both the title of the film and of their titletrack. This month they will be performing live on stage in de Vooruit in Ghent, with lots of other special guest joining in.
  • The Semitones "One Shot"
    They are getting rave reviews all over Europe, but still remain largely unknown in Flanders, the Brussels band Semitones. "One Shot" is the single from their newest album "Glitch".
  • Venus in Flames "Safe Haven"
    Jan de Campenaere is releasing a 2nd single, a track that was already featured on the first Venus in Flames EP "Cynthia's Gone". Nice: it's available for free via his website (see the MP3-section of this site)
  • Danaë "All Over You"
    Danaë Van Oeteren is one of the new female singers who are getting response from record companies and audience. After the up-beat single "Little Girl in Me" (see suggestions May 2001) and the release of her debut CD "Rain", "All over You" is her 2nd single.
  • ABN "Breekpunt"
    In between fighting off legal battles with the authorities or people who don't like to be sampled, ABN are releasing a 2nd single from the "Nachtschade" album. This "Breekpunt" (point break) reminisces of their "ex-Liefdadigheid" song.
