Overview

Ben Watt, half of both dance-pop outfit Everything But the Girl and DJ duo Lazy Dog, launches his next incarnation with the Buzzin' Fly series, which draws on the flavor and spirit of his indie dance label of the same name and his West London club Neighbourhood. Highlights of the 11-track Buzzin' Fly Volume One include "A Stronger Man," featuring Sananda Maitreya (previously known as Terence Trent D'Arby), Charles Webster's new remix of Justin Martin's 2003 club hit "The Sad Piano," and Martin Solveig's dub mix of the Soldiers of Twilight track "Believe."

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - David Jeffries
It's easy to see the connection between Ben Watt's work in Everything But the Girl, his love of bossa nova, and the kind of house music he favors. All are warm, tasteful, and seductive. His inclination extends to his new house music label Buzzin' Fly Records. Watt presents a mix of selections form the label on Buzzin' Fly, Vol. 1. Reaching outside of the label's catalog here and there, Watt changes things from sunny and sparkling to cool and deep with his slowly evolving mix. His own track, "A Stronger Man," with vocals by Terence Trent d'Arby under his alternative name Sananda Maitreya, is the mix's highlight. Just like everything around it, the track is hypnotic and slick, but d'Arby's lyrics give the listener that something extra to latch onto. Same goes for Watt's remix of Low's "Tonight" -- and Justin Martin's slowly melting "Sad Piano" takes third -- but the rest of the disc is too subdued to separate. That's hardly a bad thing when you take into account how well the disc works as a whole, but newcomers to the less ambitious side of house might not be swayed on just one listen. For the house fan, Buzzin' Fly, Vol. 1, is like your favorite pair of jeans. Nobody ever comments on them, but they make you feel comfortable and better than usual.
