DJ Awards 2009: Winners Announced

The annual end of season shindig that is the DJ Awards took place last week and we’re pleased to announce this year’s winners. As usual, there were some well deserved winners, some more obvious victors and then some that no doubt had ever

David Guetta unsurprisingly took Best House and Best Ibiza Night for his FMIF squeezeathon, but is a worthy winner. Sven Vath took Best Techno, despite being the biggest sufferer of 'Terrace syndrome' this year (that rather nice disease of everyone wanting to have it off on the Terrace) and Armin Van Buuren, the other big Terrace syndrome victim – courtesy of Roger Sanchez –, was winner of both Best Trance and International DJ.

As the awards delved into genretastic major massive mash-up potential, Sasha Best Prog and Guy Gerber Best Minimal, reflecting their Thursday night performances at Cream and Be respectively. There were more than a few raised eyebrows when well-established trance DJs Sander Van Doorn and Marco V were winners of Electro House and Tech House respectively. Elsewhere, Joris Voorn, on the back of some scintillating shows at Cocoon and We Love, deservedly won Breakthrough Act and the Cocoon After/Inaugural Cadenza bash at Ushuaia that starred Sven Vath for 12 hours, and Luciano (b2b) for roughly the last 6 hours, won Best Ibiza Set.

The other noteworthy, expected and undisputed, winner for Best Ibiza Track was La Mezcla by Michel Cleis. Here it is just in case you’ve been on sat outside dc10 all summer.
