Ben Watt looks to Lisbon for Buzzin' Fly's latest deep house missive, and the home studio of little-known producer Vahagn. "Relapse" is in many ways typical of both contemporary deep house from the region and Watt's long-running label. On one hand it's slinky, evocative and emotion-rich, on the other hypnotic and more than a touch melancholic. It's gorgeous, no doubt, but pleasingly understated, too. Nu-disco/deep house stalwart Nick Chacona provides the standout remix, combining the original's most melodic and bittersweet elements on a shuffling, near Balearic rub that should get more a few punters squinting into the sunshine on the White Isle this summer. Essential.
