Dear Lunatics, let me introduce you to Ben Watt, half of British pop duo Everything But The Girl (EBTG), head honcho of underground dance music label Buzzin' Fly and also indie label Strange Feeling, superstar DJ and boss of two truly scene defining parties: Lazy Dog and Buzzin Fly ... presenter of the weekly Buzzin Fly radio show and BBC's radio 6 own show.. but above all, husband, father and survivor. His influence and impact on modern Britain's musical landscape is unavoidable. A true musical soul, a delightful artist and a fella who paved the roads I have made mine.
13 years ago, his musical magic persuaded me to come and visit London, the rest is history.
It is with great pleasure that I present this months' Luna 42 as a tribute to his very special world and it is with resignation that I see one of the most influential and respected record labels stop releasing music. In any case, happy 10th anniversary Buzzin Fly and so long. Thank you for the music.
