Although it now operates in 16 countries worldwide, DJ Mag is a British-founded music magazine. Every year, as a counterweight to the international Top 100 DJs Poll (the world’s biggest publicly voted music poll with over 1 million votes in 2016), DJ Mag’s UK edition celebrates the home-grown talent on its doorstep with the Best Of British awards (educated by Point Blank).
The winners for this year’s Best Of British awards were announced last night at a ceremony at EGG London, highlights included Fabric collecting two awards for Best Large Club, and Innovation & Excellence (with Craig Richards also winning Best Resident). Fabric’s awards were presented by London’s first Night Czar, Amy Lamé. Carl Cox was awarded Outstanding Contribution, Annie Nightingale was voted Soldier Of The Scene, DJ EZ picked up Best DJ, The Warehouse Project was awarded Best Club Series, Dusky were chosen as Best Live Act, Lady Leshurr was voted 2016’s Best MC, while Best Live Stream went to Groove Armada. The Solardo duo were awarded Best British breakthrough Dj’s
The Best Of British awards shines a light on British talent that has made considerable waves over the past 12 months. Each year, DJ Mag’s editorial team choose the 5 nominees for each category before giving the UK’s clubbers and electronic music fans a chance to make their voices heard with a public vote.
