9 August, 2010

Hey everyone!

To celebrate 10 years of being rather bloody good (if we do say so ourselves), the loveable huggable bosses at NSB Radio have decided to throw the inaugural NSB Radio Awards where you can vote for, amongst the various categories, your favourite radio show!

I’m am very proud to announce that I Hubie, and my show Hubie Sounds, have been nominated for a handful of awards and I would be over the moon if you could vote for me!

Here are the categories that I am nominated for:

  • Best Guest Mix: Curl & Dean on Hubie Sounds 25/05/10
  • Best Guest Mix: Peo De Pitte on Hubie Sounds 05/02/10
  • Best Radio Show: Hubie
  • Best UK / Europe DJ: Hubie

To vote, simply click on the following link: http://www.nsbradio.co.uk/vote/

You don’t have to vote in all the categories if you don’t want to, but make sure you check your email to confirm your votes afterwards! Voting closes at midnight on Wednesday 18th August, so get voting!

The winners will be announced live at the NuSkoolBreaks.co.uk 10th Birthday Party in London on Saturday 21st August, where I will be DJing along with a huge selection of NSB Radio legends! If you want to come down, make sure you are early – we kick off at 5pm, and with limited capacity, it’s gonna be a mad one!

Thanks everyone, I really appreciate your support!

breakspoll 2010 – voting is now open!

21 January, 2010

Hey kids!

It’s that time of year again where the breakbeat community dusts off its best breakbeat tuxedo and prepares itself for a civilised evening of backslapping and japery at the annual Breakspoll International Breakbeat Awards. And I’m sure you all know what that means… it’s time for you to flex your voting muscles and vote for your favourite DJs, producers and so on!

Now I’m fairly sure you’ve already been inundated with spam from numerous hopefuls attempting to secure your votes, so we here at Hubie Sounds have decided to take the softly softly approach this year. So please treat this post as a gentle reminder to support your favourite artists, because the more of you who vote, the more fair and equal the voting will be.

I’m sure you already know who you want to vote for, but if you need any help with your votes, please read on and give your support to these friends of Hubie Sounds…

  • BEST ALBUM: General Midi – Operation Overdrive
  • BEST COMPILATION / MIX: NuSkoolBreaks.co.uk Presents Uncovered mixed by Ben & Lex
  • BEST TRACK: General Midi ft. Whiskey Pete – Get It Down
  • BEST REMIX: The Amplifetes – It’s My Life (General Midi Remix)
  • BEST LABEL: Distinctive Records
  • BEST PRODUCER: General Midi
  • BEST RADIO STATION: NSB Radio
  • BEST RADIO SHOW: vote for Hubie Sounds if you like, and a big thank you if you do! But may I suggest you vote for Ben & Lex’s Beats n Bobs show, which is also on NSB Radio. It’s a great show and it stands a brilliant chance of knocking Annie Nightingale off her best radio show perch this year!

>>>> Click HERE to vote! <<<<

Make sure you get your votes in as soon as poss, cos voting closes in a couple of weeks’ time!

Thanks for taking the time to vote and extra special thanks for your support, we really appreciate it!
