O Dedo/ The Rattle/ O Dedo (Remixes)
12" Vinyl Single Record
As the main producer of the genre-defying Portuguese group BURAKA SOM SISTEMA for the past 4 years, J-WOW has helped bring a hybrid sound of Angolan Kuduro to the world. The group has developed the respect and support of the biggest dance producers and DJs as well as a massive following-with 60K+ records sold worldwide and an amazing live show that has left stages torn down from Coachaella to Glastonbury, Buraka is well established. Now J-Wow is branching off in a solo effort, and the results are haaaard. "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" features a super catchy and energetic build that breaks out into a 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. BIRD PETERSON's "O Dedo" remix is a real heavy smasher. SBTRKT's remix of "O Dedo" is a beautiful, moving piece that will appeal way past just the dubstep aficionados. Vinyl is limited to 500 pieces with full color picture sleeve & some nice details (spot varnish). All vinyl comes with download cards for FREE 320 MP3s.
