Well this news is very exciting for me because I am a major supporter of the DJ...I mean think about it, there is no party without a DJ, there is no need for music without a person to play it so in my eyes the DJ is someone who is VERY important in entertainment. So its about time that they get the recognition necessary. So ladies and gentlemen I present to you the Global Spin Awards!

"After a long overdue wait, the oldest pillar of the music industry will get its proper recognition. Next month, the Big Apple will host the first annual Global Spin DJ Awards dedicated to the men and women behind the wheels of steel.

At a press conference earlier this week hosted by Sway Calloway with panelists Clinton Sparks, Marley Marl, Funkmaster Flex, and Kid Capri, the awards organizer Shawn Prez made the monumental announcement of the highly anticipated ceremony. "The global presence of the DJ. The motivation is simple; it's a need", says Prez. "The actors have the Oscars, even the writers and producers have the BMI awards. If you're a DJ and you're doing your thing no matter what genre of music, you will be recognized by the Global Spin Awards." With categories ranging from Regional DJ of the Year to International DJ of the year, this trailblazing ceremony is guaranteed to garner support from turntablists around the globe."


Not only am I excited about that awards but I am most excited that one of my featured Go Getta DJ's from The Go Getta Mix, DJ Blazita has been nominated for Female DJ of the Year!
