Manu Chao: Politik Kills (Because Music, 2008)
I've never had much time for Manu Chao, which, I'm sure, has upset him no end. But his next single features a huge stack of remixes (Dennis Bovell, Prince Fatty, David B and others) and they are all good. Like, every single one. I like this Barriobeat one by El Rude a lot as it's, basically, a racket with shouting on top and if that isn't a description of great pop music, then I don't know what is (*doesn't-know-what-is face*).
