gsa-announcement

(AllHipHop News) This past Wednesday, The nominees and honorees for the 2nd annual Global Spin Awards were revealed in New York City by an esteemed panel of guests. The panel included DJ Drama, Executive Vice President at Def Jam Shawn “Pecas” Costner, DJ Scratch, the legendary Grandmaster Flash, Shawn Prez and the host of the upcoming awards, Sway Calloway.

Shawn Prez explained how a network of individuals knowledgeable of the DJ culture across the world comprise The Global Spin Awards’ Bureau which handles the nominations.

We took individuals all across the music industry and we asked them to submit an honest and fair vote. Just one vote per category, that’s all either of these people were able to do. We have individuals from Texas, individuals from overseas, individuals from the West Coast, the Midwest, the East. Once these votes were tallied, we went for the top 4 or 5 people who got nominations. There’s no buying your way into a nomination. There’s no befriending Sway or anyone on this panel because any one on this panel can only give you one vote.

The honorees at this year’s Global Spin Awards will be Kid Capri (Lifetime Achievement Award Honoree) and DJ Marley Marl (Legendary DJ Award Honoree). Grandmaster Flash spoke on his admiration of both legends at the press conference:

On Kid Capri

The first chance I got to see Kid Capri was at this place called Tavern on The Green which was located in Central Park. I was off that night and I made it a point to put on a suit jacket, because that was the only way you was getting into this place, and go see him. What made him so special was not only was his skills incredible but he was able to talk, or MC, or rap as it be, at the same time. There are those who DJ incredible. There are those who talk on the mic incredible. He’s one of those DJ’s who’s able to do both amazingly. My plan was to stay for an hour but I ended up staying the entire night and watched him throw on jam after jam  after jam and talk as he was going in and out of his cuts.

On Marley Marl

I’m recognized in taking the turntable and mixer and making a science out of it. Marley took this machine and picked this one sound that today is the basis of how Hip Hop tracks are created. I have to speak technical right now, because this is where I’m most comfortable. I found this unknown turntable company called Technics and Gemini. Marley found this unknown drum machine by a company called Roland. He found a way to manipulate this low frequency sound and tune it and called it 808. For those that DJ’s, for those that produce, you have to know what I’m talking about. That low end rumble that you hear in almost 99% of Hip Hop songs today. I give major, major, major respect for Marley for taking that sound and finding a way to technically to insert that into a Hip Hop track.

The 2013 Global Spin Awards will take place in New York City on November 18th.
