“O Dedo” goes big right out of the gate – a fusion of the bounce that makes Buraka sound so cool with more straightforward house and electro sensibilities. “O Dedo” means “The Finger” in Portuguese and this one is obviously designed to get hands in the air. “O Dedo” features a super catchy and energetic build that breaks out into (not annoying!) synth chorus that has crowds going nuts. The other original J-Wow track here, “The Rattle,” embodies pure feeling by blending the mood of vocal house with an eerie “wide open” soundscape. And just when you think you have it figured out, in come the hollow grinding synths and swinging drums. This one goes a little deeper then some of the tracks you’re used to, and trust us, it’ll be a welcome change. Bird Peterson’s “O Dedo” remix is a real heavy smasher. Mr. Peterson teases out the build up even more, then twists into a dirty methodical electro influenced piece of heaven. The fourth and final track, SBTRKT’s remix of “O Dedo” is a beautiful, moving piece that will appeal way past just the dubstep aficionados.
