THE GLOBAL SPIN AWARDS
THE GLOBAL SPIN AWARDS
In the changing climate of the music industry there has been one constant – the DJ, who had yet to be recognized exclusively for their contribution to both music and entertainment industries. The Global Spin Awards has become the Premier DJ Award & Ceremony. From its commencement, November 19th, 2012, The GSAs have been classified as the Quality Standard of DJ Recognition by music industry executives and tastemakers.
The Global Spin Awards (GSAs) were created to award and honor the world’s most dynamic and talented DJs for their contribution to the culture of music and entertainment: past, present and future. From the influential DJ pioneers and innovators, to the trendsetters and entrepreneurs; elite DJs across the globe will be recognized and honored, amongst their peers and other industry professionals for their contribution to the entertainment industry and the ever expanding DJ Culture.
Shawn Prez (Bad Boy Records Executive and founder of the 15 year old premier Urban Lifestyle Marketing firm Power Moves Inc,) created the GSAs to award and honor DJs who have impacted diverse audiences globally and across genres.
PER THE FOUNDER – SHAWN PREZ
“Throughout my career I’ve formed long standing relationships with DJs, and have always noticed the lack of recognition given to them and the roles they play within the culture, music and entertainment. The GSAs were created to fill that void and finally honor the DJs exclusively for their achievements, especially amongst their peers. Simply put, DJs deserve their own
The Award Show
