Best New Dance Act:

Major Lazer

Best Dance Artist:

David Guetta

He might not be the most talented producer and he may have got into the mainstream by accident but no other dance artist has done more for the dance scene this year then this man. With all the collaborations on his album One Love his mainstream style has put dance back into the charts which hasn't been done in awhile. You gotta hand it to him..

Boys Noize

Quality dance floor track. Kills it every time I drop it.

French house music at it's best!

This is just a cracker of a tune. It's an anthem.

Best Live Act:

Fatboy Slim at Marley Park

The set had everything!

Other Mentions:

Basement Jaxx @ Olympia Theatre

Wolfe Tones @ DKIT College Bar

Group of 2009:

Florence & The Machine

These guys are fresh, original and a reminder that real artist are still out there. Florence Welch has a voice that would put any of them X-factor contestants/winners to shame and fuck me she can party and still belt out a tune! The only thing better then this group this year is the remixes done of them. Without a doubt group of the year no one comes close..

Track Of 2009:

La Roux - In For The Kill (Skream's Let's Get Ravey Remix)

If you've never heard this before you won't get it. It was only when I heard Fatboy Slim drop it at Marley Park I realised what a quality track it was.. It was up between this and Florence & the Machine's "Cosmic Love" for my track of the year. This took it....... Dubstep will take over.. Be warned!

Top 5 Of The Noughties:

Tiesto - Adagio For Strings

Arctic Monkeys – I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor

Rihanna – Umbrella

Snow Patrol – Chasing Cars

Eminem - Stan
