The 5th Annual 2017 Global Spin Awards (GSA) was nothing short of amazing. It was created by Director Shawn Prez to highlight and celebrate the industry’s pioneer DJs for all their hard work, and dedication to their craft. More importantly, this awards ceremony is dedicated to drawing attention to what DJs and their line of work does for the culture.”It feels great to honor people that don’t normally get recognized or honored, so to put on an event that recognizes DJs exclusively, it feels good,” said Prez.
Many people do not realize that the role of a DJ has become very dynamic. DJs are making records, creating albums, opening businesses, helping people’s careers, but most importantly, they bring all the fun and entertainment. Hot 97’s DJ Camilo said, “I like the hustle of being a DJ, its a 24 hour job.” Camilo adds, “From radio, to night clubs, and apps there so much we do, but my favorite part of what we do is entertaining the people.”
