Buzzin' Fly Still Celebrating Fifth Birthday
It's a mere five years old, but Ben Watt's Buzzin' Fly imprint has enough releases stocked in its back catalog to outdo a lot of labels that have been around for a decade. Buzzin' Fly - 5 Golden Years in the Wilderness is a testament to this, as the triple-disc release is two parts retrospective, one part future-facing, and a whole lot of house and techno tunes that have been embraced by DJs and music fans around the world.
The disc set may have been released last week, but Watt and Co are not finished with their 5-year celebrations. Thus, the Buzzin Fly - 5 Golden Years in the Wilderness EP2, which highlights three tracks from the compilation. The EP contains two brand new cuts, one from Hamburg-based deep-house producer Sebastian Doering and another from St. Petersburg's BarBQ,as well as the classic "I Love You" from Unity and a bonus, unreleased track not on the original anniversary release.
No word as to whether or not an EP3 or some derivative of that will be forthcoming, but don't be surprised if you hear word of such a thing in the near future. Wilderness EP2 is out in digital and vinyl formats on July 21.
