The Ibiza-based DJ Awards were given out late last week.
The 11th edition of the annual DJ Awards took over Pacha Ibiza late last week. There were some mixed up genrefications of names, with Luciano up against Steve Lawler, James Zabiela up for best electro house DJ, and Richie Hawtin and Adam Beyer could have swapped trophies, but overall the awards reflected artists that have increased their legions of fans with strong performances throughout the 2008 summer season.
RA was also in attendance and proudly accepted the award for the media category before the club turned into a F*** ME I'M FAMOUS party with house winner David Guetta. The full results of this years awards follows.
