The Global Spin Awards were created by Shawn Prez in 2012, with the goal of celebrating the accomplishments of DJs and producers worldwide. For the last six years, the show has continued to grow into a pillar of the music industry, celebrated by such “A-list” celebrities and musicians, including nominees, DJ Khaled, DJ Envy, Marshmello, and The Chainsmokers.
His experience as an industry executive, with both Atlantic Records and Bad Boy Entertainment, helped Prez attain some of the connections necessary to create the first and only award show to give industry recognition just for DJs.
This year, the Global Spin Awards will take place in Los Angeles, for the first time ever on February 15th, and will include presentations of the “Lifetime Achievement Award” to Timbaland, and the “Breaking Barriers Award,” to Jermaine Dupri.
