The DJ Mag Top 100 may dominate the headlines throughout the year, but a number of other award bodies for electronic music exist to reward exemplary producing and DJing. One of those awards organizations, the Ibiza-based DJ Awards, celebrated its 18th anniversary this year, and the winners for its 2015 edition represent the very best in electronic music today.

The awards are split in various categories, notably between DJ awards and special awards (such as technical awards and event awards). Hardwell came out on top with two awards, winning for the Electro/Progressive House and International DJ categories. Other big awards were given to Disclosure for the Electronica category, Armin van Buuren for the trance category, and Carl Cox for the techno category. In the miscellaneous awards, South Africa interestingly won the “Dance Nation of the Year” award (where “Breakthrough” winner Black Coffee hails) and free DJ software Rekordbox won the “Cutting Edge” award.
