Various Artists Buzzin‘ Fly Vol. 2
- Words: Luciana Lopez
- Label: Astralwerks
Ben Watt is so consistently good reviewing him feels too easy-and this house disc is no exception. Here Watt finds that rare balance between awareness and abandon. The ultra-smooth segue of the intro-which melds parts of the Watt-penned "Williamsburg or Harlem" into the deep house-meets-Jamaican vocals of Jerk House Connection‘s "New York Style"-sets the tone for the disc, which showcases Watt‘s considerable DJ skills. He nails both the mixing and programming, with tracks like DJ T.‘s electro "Time Out" and Nookie‘s lusher "Better Love" culminating in a return to the comp‘s opening track.
