January 22, 2015
Worldwide Awards 2015 went down on Saturday January 17th at Koko London, with live performances from Adrian Younge and Bilal, Dorian Concept Trio, Taylor McFerrin, Melanie De Biasio, The Heliocentrics with Sunra members Marshall Allen and Noel Scott, Fatima and The Eglo Band, and Anushka! And that’s just the live bands! On the DJ tip, we had Lil Silva, Lone, Seven Davis Jr, Alex Patchwork, Skinny Macho, Clap! Clap!, Atjazz and more holding it down on the decks throughout the night.
Of course, there were the Awards themselves, with Flying Lotus, Fatima, Melanie De Biasio, Strut Recordings, Marshall Allen, Bilal and Malcolm Catto winning their categories! A full run down of the Awards lists is here!
On the night, Gilles thought he’d record a homage to one of his favourite films of recent times, Birdman!
And here is the unorthodox acceptance speech for Footpatrol Track of the Year winner, Flying Lotus.
And if that’s not enough, here are all the photos from the event!
