South African House music has been gaining traction over the years both at home and on the global stage.
With the vast nature of House Music, it has proven difficult for award academies to offer accolades to House/Dance artists appropriately, according to their respective house styles and sub-genres. However, the DJ Awards in Ibiza have a different approach – they categorize people via their sub-genre within the house music soundscape.
The DJ Awards – Ibiza was founded by renowned Ibiza organiser Jose Pascual and well know DJ/Producer plus record label owner, Lenny Krarup. The annual celebration is aimed at shining a light on DJs and producer that influence that House scene worldwide.
