DJs and DJ culture keep getting their much-deserved due.
The nominees were announced for the 2014 Global Spin Awards (GSA), an award show that honors and recognizes the world's most dynamic and talented DJs for their contribution to the culture of music and entertainment.
Categories include DJs and producers from all regions, spanning all genres. Highlights of this year's nominees are DJ Envy, Funkmaster Flex, DJ Vice and Diplo. For the producer category, DJ Khaled, Clinton Sparks and DJ Cassidy were a few of the notables. Swizz Beats, Solange, Idris Elba, Lil Jon and Jermaine Dupri were nominated for top celebrity DJs.
"Throughout my career I've formed long lasting relationships with the world's most talented DJs. I've never understood the lack of recognition given to DJs for their continued influence on national and international musical currents and culture. The GSAs were created to fill the void and finally honor the DJs exclusively for their achievements, amongst their peers. Simply put, DJs deserve their own version of the Grammy's," stated GSA founder Shawn Prez.
The official award show will be held on November 18 at the New World Stages in New York, where the nominees will join each other in celebrating their work and the growth of the industry. The awards have grown into a weekend-long event. Prez continued, "The awards have grown over the years, drawing top names and brands. With the overwhelming response and participation, this year we're pleased to announce a weekend long celebration complete with a DJ Clinics, panels and battles."
