Date published: 25th Sep 2015
Some artists and broadcasters go above and beyond. Not only do they play gigs around the world and represent massive tunes, they create a legacy through their passion towards the music scene. That's where the 'Outstanding Contribution' category comes into the Bass Music Awards.
It's one of the most prestigious categories, that will see the likes of Congo Natty, DJ EZ, Diplo and Mary Anne Hobbs all go head to head. Looking at the list alone is enough to clarify what this award is all about - a continuous and spectacular musical contribution to the bass music scene throughout their careers. Circus Records nabbed the award last year (watch in action below)
Whether it's through the radio raves, in the studio or behind the decks, these nominees have flown the flag for the genre in a way that deserves recognition. But it's up to you who takes the award on Thursday 19th November at the ceremony. The full list of nominations is below. You can vote on the BMA website.
