THE GLOBAL SPIN AWARDS
In the changing climate of the music industry there has been one constant – the DJ, who has yet to be recognized exclusively for their contribution to both music and entertainment industries. The Global Spin Awards will be the Premier DJ Award & Ceremony.
In recognizing that DJ’s often go overlooked, Shawn Prez (Bad Boy Records Executive and founder of the 15 year old premier Urban Lifestyle Marketing firm Power Moves Inc,created the GSAs to award and honor the world’s most dynamic DJs who have impacted diverse audiences globally and across genres.
The GSAs will spotlight the ground breaking innovators that usher in the new and preserve our musical legacy. From the influential DJ pioneers and innovators, to the trendsetters and entrepreneurs; elite DJs across the globe will be recognized and honored, amongst their peers and other industry professionals for their contribution to the entertainment industry and the ever expanding DJ Culture.
PER THE FOUNDER – SHAWN PREZ
“Throughout my career I’ve formed long standing relationships with DJs, and have always noticed the lack of recognition given to them and the roles they play within the culture, music and entertainment. The GSAs were created to fill that void and finally honor the DJs exclusively for their achievements, especially amongst their peers. Simply put, DJs deserve their own version of the Grammy’s.”
The Global Spin Awards Show will take place on Monday November 19th 2012 in New York City at the New York Times Center in Manhattan. New York City is one of the most vibrant and industrious cities in the world, serving as a haven for music and pop culture. Above all, it is home to the founding fathers of the DJ’ing art form as we know it today. There is no question as to what better place to host an award show in the DJ’s Honor.
The GSAs will be hosted by SWAY of MTV & Sway In The Mornings – Sirius XM and will include special guest performances by some of today’s top artists.
This Industry – Invite Only Formal Event will draw an audience comprised of the biggest names in music and entertainment.
