Entirely produced by Thomas Bangalter (Daft Punk), "Gym Tonic" bacame, over the years, a kind of mythical record. According to the rumours, Bangalter didn't want the track to be released commercially. But it gained such a success as a promo that Sinclar decided to put it on his first album "Paradise", crediting himself as the main author and Bangalter as the remixer. This event leaded to several legal problems: Jane Fonda took legal actions for the uncredited use of her voice, and it finally cost around 75 000$ to clear the sample. Many opportunist, commercial dance acts stealed the main idea of the record: the most popular one, Spacedust, released "Gym And Tonic" (which even reproduce Stardust's "Music Sounds Better With You" melody). Finally, Bangalter decided to "ban" Sinclar's remix of "Music Sounds Better With You" by ordering new versions of the song to Dimitri From Paris and DJ Sneak. It is unlikely that these two DJ's will ever work together again. Choose your camp.
