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: 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 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!

Hubie x
