The nominations have been unveiled for DJ Mag's Best Of British award which celebrates a plethora of UK talent with categories including Best DJ, Best Live Act and Best Producer amongst a range of others.

The DJ mag staff piece together their top five contenders for each category before a public vote determines who wins overall.

Last year's star studded bash took place at Heaven in London where victors included Eats Everything (best DJ), Sub Club (Best Venue), Skepta (Best MC) and Bicep (Best Track). 

This year sees Egg London and Rainbow Venues compete against fabric and more for Best Large Club. Manchester's Hidden and Southampton's Junk deservedly earn nominations for Best Small Club after curating an immense range of top dance events over the last 12 months. 

It's no surprise to see The Warehouse Project nominated for Best Club Series with this season's programme proving that the Manchester electronic music mash up never ceases to bring the biggest acts to the city. Percolate are also nominated and bring Best Live Act nominees Crazy P and Best Album nominee Leon Vynehall to some of their forthcoming events. 

This year Daniel Avery, DJ EZ, DJ Harvey, Maya Jane Coles and Sasha compete for Best DJ while the likes of DJ Barely Legal, Solardo and more are up for Best Breakthrough DJ.

Underworld and Floating Points are both in the Best Live Act nominations and there's also a place for Junction 2, South West Four and The Social Festival in the Best Dance Festival category.

The nominees for Best Album include Dom & Roland with Last Refuge Of A Scoundrel, Gold Panda's Good Luck And Do Your Best and Pangaea's In Drum Play. Leon Vynehall is also up for Best Track for 'Blush' while Alan Fitzpatrick, Sir Spyro, Midland and Mr. G are hoping their biggest bangers scoop them the prize.
