Every once in a while Jason Bentley plays a song that prompts multiple calls to the station with people desperately seeking it out. That song this week is the RAC remix of Zee Avi’s “Concrete Wall”.

On this track, the Malaysian singer really stepped out of her comfort zone of softly sung songs accompanied by a gentle instrument like the ukulele. Instead, it’s more like a hip hop track, with a catchy hook and Zee dramatically banging a drum.

The RAC remix makes it even groovier and a bit funky. Check out the original performed live on KCRW below and download it here. (Check out the full performance in the archives.)

In person, Zee is tiny, lovely and gives off an incredibly peaceful vibe, but she is not to be underestimated. You can feel her toughness in this song and I dare anyone to cross her!

Be on the look out for 3 more remixes, from Mario C & David Hurwitz, Mansions on The Moon, and Robert Carranza. All four will be released as a digital maxi single next week.
