2010 Stylus Awards – Thank You!

Last weekend (May 28 – June 01), The Stylus Group held the 5th Annual Stylus Spinfest & DJ Awards. The weekend’s events & Monday’s award show brought together & celebrated the deejays, artists, producers, labels, and individuals who help shape and develop Canada’s urban music scene.

Last year I won ‘Canadian Club DJ of the Year’ and thanks to your support, I was nominated for 3 awards this year (Club DJ of the Year, Toronto DJ of the Year & Mixtape of the Year) & ended up taking home 2 – Toronto DJ of the Year & Mixtape of the Year! I suck terribly at acceptance speeches and never remember to say what I want or thank the people I want to, so here goes..

Toronto DJ of The Year
Big thank you first and foremost to my parents, for being supportive of me quitting the corporate 9-5 grind to focus on DJ’ing back when it was not looking so promising.. The fact that they let me to pursue my passion at such a young age says a lot and meant a lot to me, and I’m always thankful for that. Thanks to my girl, for being so understanding and supportive as well, and of course, my entire team.. My emcee, Sir Lancelot (we consistently shut parties down together), Mediaphase, all the promoters & corporate clients whom I’ve worked with, everyone at FLOW 93.5 FM, my sponsors (IdeaLL, Orisue, Ransom, Ortofon), Stylus Group, Marc Ecko Watches and finally everyone who comes out to the parties, downloads the mixtapes/podcasts & continues to show love and support in general.. Much thanks!
