The return of critical key OGs has kept our roots firmly in check as the old guys make new sounds and the new guys pay homage to the old sounds – creating a healthy boundary-free fusion between sub-genres.It’s been one helluva year and we have plenty to celebrate… And commiserate.2016 has also seen more iconic venues across the world being threatened than ever before. Club culture is experiencing its most momentous kicking in years, and as a whole is in serious jeopardy of being suppressed and homogenised. There has never been a more crucial time for the music community to unite and protect the foundations this scene was built on.This is your opportunity to big up the entire scene, and our opportunity to get the d&b community under one loved-up roof on our favourite day of the year.As always the results are 100% up to YOU.We really can’t stress this point enough… 2015 saw our biggest voting turnout to date: Over 15K votes poured in from over 145 countries.
