Over the years, there has been some tryouts yet to start a respected House awards ceremony in Belgium, in USA, and even in Ibiza. And there's many polls, for almost every magazine (OutSoon, Mixmag, DJ Magazine, Traxx, Kiosque, TheTicket). But here comes now what is already supposed to be the definitive 'House Music Awards'. It says clearly House, so we guess it's not Drum'n Bass or Techno, and you can vote for it.
The first step asks the public (you) to vote, and to say the names of those you love (there's no multiple-choice-list ... you can say your real choice on their website... before the 30 June!)
The second step is the selection of the potential award from that big list.
The third step will come in September in London with the 1st House Music Awards.
There has been already more than 17.000 votes! Better to vote for real big names to compete ... but you can push up your Belgian big House names too... such as Koenie, Stephanie, Glimmer Twins, Raoul, Prinz, Geoffroy, Smos & Baby B, Isabel, Cosy Mozzy or Olivier Gosseries.
(You can mention noctis.com as web source too, but there's so many websites ... or think to www.deephousepage.com and www.jahsonic.com).
Two innovative technologies are the famous Numark turntable (TTX1) and a weird way to mix sounds with light objects: the Audiopad (Audiopad) ... but these are just suggestions if you don't have any.
More info about these two technical tools on this Noctis page here.
Some of the Awards to vote: Best Single - Best Album - Best Label - Artist of the Year - Best Vocal - Best Live Performance - Best Remix - Most Innovative Music Producer - DJ of the Year - Breakthrough DJ - Best Venue - Best Club Night - ... - Best Magazine - Best Web Resource - Best Radio Station (FM or Internet) - Best Radio Show - Best Store - Most Innovative Technology - Contribution to House Music. There's also two Awards related to the WMC in Miami but we guess that most of you have not been there.
House Music Awards needs your votes! Help your beloved deejays to reach the attention they deserve.
Yes, there's a registering... but it's just a form without confirmation. Go on!
