    The 4th Annual Stylus DJ Awards were held last night (June 1st) at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre in Toronto. Over 1300 people – many industry peers and fans filled the auditorium to watch their favorite DJs get recognized and performances from some of the hottest artists in Toronto.

    The show opened with the founders of the Stylus Group –  David “Click” Cox, Mike Zafaris and Nigel Ong as they said a few words welcoming everyone to the awards.  Jahvon, opened the show with DJ Starting From Scratch to perform “Class In Session” and my favorite “Hypebeast” getting everyone amped about the awards show. Before the first award was given, Trixx & RG (who hosted the previous Stylus DJ Awards) decided to give out an award of their own as they felt Stylus DJ Awards forgot a category –  most “teefing” promoter. Trixx sent a public message to all the promoters to make sure the DJS are paid!

    This year’s awards was hosted by Matte Babel from MuchMusic & CityTV and Arisa Cox from E! News. IllKidz tried something new with the awards as they did a mix collaboration with The KidFamous, Luu Breeze and Page who all showed Toronto why we are the Best. Each artist tore down the house with their high energy performances. Andreena Mill and Saukratees performed the Canadian R&B single of the year “You, Me and Tomorrow”. In closing, Danny Fernandes gave a full stage show performing “Fantasy”.

    Jester led the DJs winners circle with two awards (College Radio Show of the Year along with Chief and Soca DJ of the Year). There’s a reason why he calls himself the most versatile DJ. (Take Notes). Kardinal Offishall also won two awards for both Canadian and International Hip Hop Single of the Year for his single “Dangerous” featuring Akon.

    The YF&N Highlights from the night – Kid Kut laughing at Trixx’s joke about KLC. For those who missed the awards, Stylus Group and TOFLO.com/stylus did a live interview session with the nominees and award winners. I got a chance to check out the live feed, and it looked amazing. Last but not least, special thanks to the Stylus Group and sponsors who made this event possible.
