A visit from an MP, an impromptu accapella performance of “All I Do”, an exclusive live performance of the brand new vocal version of “Strings of Life”, Junior Jack, Tom Neville, Frankie Knuckles, Robert Owens and Marshall Jefferson all in the house, as were the New York Times and a film crew from Reuters – backstage catching all the stars and all the action.
The DTPM & Toolroom Records hosted Official After-Party @ AKA was almost as glamorous as the event itself with spontaneous spins from David Morales, Martijn ten Velden & Mutiny amongst others, and some spontaneous limbo-dancing from MYNC’s Mark Brown and Defected’s Kieran Mansfield.
House Music Awards congratulate everyone involved in House. There’s an awful lot to celebrate.
