El Ten Eleven – Point Breeze (Shallou Remix)

Shallou is a smaller artist on the scene who’s caught my eye with both his remixes and originals. The producer’s taste factors are apparent with his excellent song choice for a remix. It’s a take on El Ten Eleven’s original “Point Breeze” and Shallou does it justice.

PJ Harvey – The Wheel is rock song to emerge from her long-awaited ninth LP might illuminate the intention. In “The Wheel,” some 28,000 children have disappeared, and all we do is watch. We see them play and die violent deaths, witness their public memorial, and “watch them fade out,” as Harvey sings over 20 times at the end. The figure has no attribution: a crass search of “28,000 children disappear” brings up figures pertaining to gun crime, child street labor in Kabul, or the number of NATO troops initially sent to Kosovo in the late 1990s. The wheel turns and one tragedy swiftly replaces another, seizing air-time and attention.
