The N Awards 2013 - The Results


I have to say I'm genuinely flattered (and a little bit flabbergasted) by the reception that these N Awards have received by the lovely folk of Northampton - especially considering that they mean, well, absolutely nothing whatsoever. Aren't I selling this well?
 
Anyhow 2013 has been an absolutely incredible year for Northamptonshire music (the best of the past three years I've been doing these awards if you ask me) and all the following bands and artists that both yourselves and I have found worthy of receiving the prestigious honour of an OBE (Order of Bedge's Excellence) truly are the best of the best of the best.

You'll just have to imagine the red carpet and over-indulgent speeches.

Label In The Limelight: MTA Records


"Dedicated to releasing exceptional music across all genres" brag UK-based independent MTA Records, a statement that would make the label appear to be owned by the world's most conceited egotists if it wasn't so unarguably true.

Founded in 2009 by electronic producers Status and Chase (better known, believe it or not, as Chase & Status), MTA have spent the past four years uncovering and championing some of the most exciting, creative and original artists from across the musical spectrum.

Their assortment of excellence ranges from the bold, brazen beasts of British electronica - such as Nero, Redlight and Ben Pearce, not forgetting the CEOs themselves - to soulful gemstones like Moko or Louis M^ttrs. Joining these are the fresh, unprecedented future stars of UK hip hop, some seriously addictive deep house DJs and much more besides.

The Hell's 'Stay Another Day' Cover Is Either Completely Atrocious Or Utter Genius - Maybe Even Both


An absolutely absurd hardcore(ish) version of the East 17 karaoke classic. I love these guys.
