Here in Ibiza we’re emerging from what can only be described as one outrageously epic weekend (Music On closing, Ushuaïa closing, Space closing, ‘nuff said), and the action continued apace on Monday night as the prestigious DJ Awards were held at Pacha, during which the industry’s top players were rewarded for their services to the scene.
DJs descended in their droves on the Ibiza Town venue to find out if they’d been crowned the winner of their category and had been given the go ahead to take home one of the distinctive green kryptonite awards. Sixteen of them in total were up for grabs, 12 of which were voted for by you, the discerning public, and it turns out you all used your vote wisely.
The biggest cheer of the night perhaps inevitably, went to Carl Cox, who was crowned King (yet again) as the best Techno and International DJ. Black Coffee went home with the Deep House crown, Armin van Buuren was named best Trance DJ, Jamie XX won the Electronicaaward and the Martinez Brothers stomped to victory in the Tech House category. WooMoon went home with the best new Ibiza Night title.
This year, there was also the new introduction of the Iconic Club Award, which rightfully was presented to the one and only Space. The club’s owner, Pepe Roselló was there to pick up his trophy, doling out some characteristic pearls of kindhearted wisdom and words of thanks in the process. What a way to see out the season.
