2017 Electronic Music Awards Winners Are Here!

September 29, 2017

Nelly Varela | Staff Writer

With all the talent coming from the underground music scene which often isn’t nominated for awards like the EMA’s, we still cant help but get excited when we see DJs we’re fond of being awarded for being the creative genius’ they are. With that being said, I am more than satisfied with the winners to this years Electronic Music Awards, underground or not. 

Organized by Paul Oakenfold and the Hunt & Crest entertainment company in Los Angeles, the awards featured categories ranging from Remix of the Year to Best Club to Radio Show of the Year, with our very own 
Nicole Moudaber – In The Mood radio nominated in the category. 

Amongst all the nominees, we had wins from Illenium for Remix of the Year with his take on Flume’s “Say It,” and Eric Prydz taking home DJ of The Year.
