Ben Watt has a couple good reasons to celebrate this month. His Buzzin' Fly imprint is not only celebrating its five-year anniversary, but there's also a triple-disc compilation set for release on June 23 that showcases both the label's history and future, from Watt's infamous "Lone Cat" track to dark techno bangers from John Tejada.
Just before the sampler drops, Watt and Co will head down to The End and AKA clubs in London for a proper birthday party. Watt will be joined by deep-house maestro Charles Webster–who has a couple releases on Buzzin' Fly–in the main room, while in the club's lounge, Paris-based Mademoiselle Caro will spin a DJ set of her trademark electro, rock, and techno. Find tech-disco DJ Luke Solomon holding the party down upstairs, at AKA.
Londoners should head down on Saturday, June 21 beginning at 11 p.m. Cost of admission is £16–not a bad deal, since the shindig goes until 7 a.m.
