Last night the toast of the UK dance music scene converged on London's Ministry of Sound for our annual Best of British Awards. The biggest BOB event we have ever run saw you represent in your thousands to see sets from Andy C, James Zabiela, Paul Woolford, Dusky, Gorgon City, Ben Pearce and Leftwing & Kody.

It's official — dance is dominant again. Not just EDM cheese but credible, interesting, exciting music bubbling up from the underground. The latter fed the pop charts in a way not seen since the early 90s in 2013, and there were plenty of other exciting developments from the subterranean experimental labs of house, techno and breakbeat too...
Dusky have been added to Best Of British Awards at Ministry Of Sound on Wednesday 18th December.

You’ve cast your votes on some of the hottest equipment in town now lets see who will win the haloed crown…
