Drum&BassArena Awards 2013: The Winners!

Drum&BassArena Awards 2013: The Winners!

so much winWow…. What a night!

This evening the drum & bass scene’s great and good united to celebrate another hugely successful year. From the artists and to the shadowy behind the scenes movers and shakers, Electric Brixton lived up to its name as it buzzed with D&B’s most successful creative and business minds. Joined by hundreds of enthusiastic music lovers who’d used the complementary free ticket they’d received for voting, everyone in the building was there to hear Charlie T and Dynamite MC definitively answer this question…

Who smashed it?

The question was answered in great detail throughout the night. Ably complemented by stunning performances by Katie’s Ambition and Guildford Bucket Drummers and Drum&BassArena’s own in-house DJs, the ceremony has been a fitting finale to our best awards campaign to date.

Before we reveal the answers we’d like take this opportunity to thank every single one of you who took part and voted. Members of the Drum&BassArena community are regarded as the most knowledgeable, dedicated D&B fans possible. As a result, these votes are respected as THE benchmark for quality.

We’d also like to congratulate everyone who reached the nomination stage. While there can only be one winner, all nominees should be applauded for such a high level of recognition, too.

Without further ado, these are the winners. What do you think? There’s a comment box below with your name on it!
