BBC Review

Aptly subtitled "replenishing music for the modern soul", Ben Watt's latest labour of love finally demonstrates that the producer-come-DJ-come-label-mogul indeed does have the Midas touch.

In a career that's included international chart success as one half of Everything But The Girl, running the award winning Lazy Dog Sunday afternoon jam in trendy Notting Hill, and most recently the creation of Buzzin' Fly records and owner of west London's coolest club, Neighbourhood. Without wishing to sound sycophantic, the multi-faceted man wears many caps with much finesse and style.

With eager anticipation the first instalment of Buzzing' Fly is exactly what we've come to expect. Edgy deep house grooves with the odd hint afro-beat, oozing elegance and panache with basslines reminiscent of workouts from the likes of Mood II Swing and Sandy Rivera. A selection made with pool parties and cocktails on the terrace in mind rather than a pint of larger and a packet of crisps at the Nags Head.

Emphasis is on beautifully deep flowing arrangements that fall into Naked Music territory. Rodamaal's Latin-kissed opener "Musica Feliz" setting a tempo that rarely fluctuates until the Passion Dance Orchestra's rich keyboard flourishes and firmly muscular bassline on "Worlds".

In between, it's the exclusives that draw the most attention - Manoo's gently caressing, kaleidoscopic, sonic textures on "6 In The Morning", Watt's own sparkling, terrace style gem"A Stronger Man" with Sananda Maitreya (the man once known as Terence Trent D'Arby)on vocalsand the sublime Charles Webster beat mix of last year's acclaimed Justin Martin release, "Sad Piano".

Watt's mixing is uncomplicated yet still slick, allowing the music to speak greater volumes than the DJ's skills. A true quicksilver talent he's created a mixture of pizzazz and pathos that swings to a soulfully sophisticated pendulum. --Jack Smith

okay. This album is very soulful,hence the name. If you are into the darker/dirtier sounds you may not like it. If your into general house, its a great buy.
The beat matching/mixing is second to none, not any of that usual computer mixing crap.
Every song is good, with a few really ace ones like the Passion Dance Orchestra.
It sounds sophisticated and jazzy with quite a few piano riffs.
Although Ben Watt is associated with deep house, this album is a mix of deep and soulful house.
If you want banging deep house look else where.
Packaging is very nice, but a little bit flimsy. Take care or else their will be tears.
In summary: A laidback, jazzy, sexy, deep/vocal house album that wont disappoint.
Well done to Amazon for great service and speedy delivery!

This man can do no wrong! Another perfect album – I have around 5 albums from Nude Dimension, Lazy Dog and now Buzzin Fly. A little more relaxed than some of the previous albums, this doesn’t take a few listens to really appreciate it. At this price it’s not worth thinking about! I have yet to buy a Benn Watt CD I don’t like – and one that doesn’t get played again and again. Perfect for the summer.

Ben Watt's Buzzin Fly Volume 1 is an absolute must for all deep house fans. Following the success of the Lazy Dog (which at times, however, could be slightly monotonous), Watt has created an album to accompany your life. Blisteringly beautiful euphoric house that sends shivers through your soul (especially 'A stronger man' - Watt's remix of the amazing Terrence Trent D'Arby's 'As Yet Unnamed'). Very rarely is music created that will be with you from the lounge to the dancefloor, from the cradle to the grave. Benn Watt manages it with panache. Simply phenomenal.

What you would expect from lazy dog, with the vocal attunement of everything but the girl. It's a class act and has a timeless feel that says you won't get tired of listing to it. A clever composition which blends together so well, you may be forgiven for thinking it was all one track. Not just one for house fans, but it has something more which is likely to appeal to a much wider audience without any sign of being commercial.
