The only problem with such an awesome line-up of talent is that, being spread across 3 rooms, you are going to miss out on two thirds of all the action (I did that maths without even using a calculator!), but from what we did catch the stand-out performances had to be from The Freestylers, A.Skillz and Lady Waks, the lovely lady celebrating scooping three awards by walking next door and annihilating the main room dancefloor!

The main news from a selfish Funk and Filth point of view, was the glorious victory for REL1, who bagged the gong for Best Free Track for his Funk and Filth Re-Filth of Smack My Bitch Up, and we couldn't be prouder to be associated with one of the best DJs/Remixers in the game. When you see those three letters and a number, REL1, attached to any track or re-rub, you know that it is going to be top notch and that you're in for a treat. We're honoured that the man from Atlanta chose to release 4 of his free Re-Filths exclusively via Funk and Filth last year, and even more chuffed that you fine people voted one of them as your favourite free track of the year! Finding and sharing the best free bass music is what we are all about here, so to have our efforts given the thumbs up by you lovely lot makes it all worthwhile, big hugz! ;)
"I'm very honored and exhilarated at the same time to be nominated let alone win . . . . the other people in the category are and have been a huge inspiration. Big thanks to Funk and Filth for the creative writing and hard work in getting tunes out there. Big thanks to the fans - all the people that voted for me, it means the world to be appreciated - and most of all HUGE thanks to Prodigy and Noisia for writing an insanely sick tune to begin with!"
Stay tuned, we should have another brand new exclusive free Funk and Filth Re-Filth from the award-winning REL1 coming your way very soon!!!
