The countdown is on to the 13th edition of the DJ Awards, one of the most important award ceremonies in the dance music calendar. This event is taking place at Ibiza’s most glamorous venue, Pacha on Tuesday September 28th.
Well known in the UK, DJ DES PAUL will be hosting for the third year this very special event, with a gathering of the world’s top DJ’s.
Hed Kandi’s DJ Des Paul is already well known to many people as the man behind Capital FM’s Dance Anthems radio shows in London. Aside from 15 years in Radio, his house music heritage goes way back to the days when you could actually dance on the terrace at Café Mambo Ibiza when the sun sets. He has been involved in the music industry for over 15 years mainly in broadcast and is an award winning presenter who works also for MTV Networks UK.
The DJ Awards ceremony will host two live performances, from 2 singers; Nalaya and Ida Corr.
Nalaya had an illustrious childhood being tutored by the same composer who also guided the career of Ricky Martin. In the summer of 2007, she signed a contract with the night club Amnesia Ibiza as a live singer and, from there, she undertook the World Tour with Matinée Group. Two years later, she was hired as the main vocalist of the Supermartxé party at Privilege Ibiza, where she continues to capture audiences of over 10´000.
Nalaya has already performed in places such as London, Amsterdam, Moscow, Cairo, Rome, Brazil… and, of course, all over Spain. She was nominated as BEST AP at Deejaymags Awards 2009.
Ida Corr is a Danish singer, songwriter and music producer.
Ida rose to fame in her native Denmark in 2005 with the release of her debut album Streetdiva and in 2006 with her follow up album Robosoul. After creating a special song with Dutch DJ Fedde le Grand as part of the Live Earth set of international music concerts, her popularity began to spread outside of her homeland.
In January 2009 Ida received an award for Best-Selling-Artist from Denmark selling music in Europe at the European Border Breakers Awards in Groningen.
A further development has been the collaboration between the DJ Awards and the Ibiza Music Cluster; which is a new music industry association recently instigated by the local government. This year the transitory integration of the Ibiza Music Awards will be presented for the awards of Outstanding Achievement, the Media award and Ibiza Resident DJ.
