Worldwide Awards 2005 // Looking Back

January 17, 2012

Looking ahead to Saturday night at Koko – Worldwide Awards 2012 – we thought we’d look back at the legacy… 2005 we were at Koko with Fat Freddy’s Drop and Soil & PIMP Sessions performing live plus The Worldwide All-Star Selectors – Jazzanova, Bugz In The Attic, Mad Mats, Henrik Schwarz, Benji B, Toshio Matsuura, Quantic, Domu, Patrick Forge, and Norman Jay – rolling through on a DJ tip… Wasn’t this the year when there was one turntable on the stage and all the DJs played one record each, whilst standing about looking slightly awkward? Ha! Not sure whose idea that was – weird one! Oh yeah and Chris Ofili designed the awards!! Balla.
