rhino's Urban Music Awards 2007 - Review

August 15th 2007 02:08
This year's second ever Urban Music Awards held at the Big Top, Luna Park in Sydney, Australia with major sponsor rhino's, has been improved on since last year in all aspects. However, international guests such as Naughty by Nature, Akon, The Game and the rest of the Roc Tha Block 2007 outfit weren't able to make an appearance due to visas being delayed till the end of the month.

Hopefully it brought more attention to the local acts, some of which were of an international standard - my favourites being pioneers of Australian Hip Hop Def Wish Cast, the highly energetic and funky King Farook and the grand finale soul of Doug Williams (who won the Urban Hero Award) featuring Australian R&B divas Paulini, Jade McRae and Neska.

The dancing? Sub-par, except for some of the opening act (what can I say, Darrio, Mel and my boys killed it). You'd expect the dancing at an exclusively industry event to be of the highest quality that you can find in Australia, but you'd have to travel down to Melbourne.

Congratulations to Shantan of Stolen Records, for winning the first award of the night for Best Radio Show, the only person I turn my radio on for on Wednesdays 6-8pm (only if you're in Sydney). You might remember I had posted about being biased towards Shanty- Wanty in one of my older posts.

To the rest of the winners, congratulations, and from the feedback I've had from everyone, they were all pretty much deserving and there weren't any talks of conspiracy or corruption, which is good to see.
