Lady Waks Dominates at Breakspoll 2013 Awards

Lady Waks

The annual Breakspoll awards were presented last night at Cable in London. Rising star Lady Waks (pictured) took top honors for best track for “Round the Globe,” best producer and best radio show. After the ceremony an elated Lady Waks tweeted: “Big thanks for voting for me. It’s a big honor to get this awards!!! .. I haven’t expect to get 3!”

Krafty KutsLets Ride was awarded best album and Scour Records won for best new label. On a touching note, London-based music publicist Sonia Akow, who has worked with countless artists on the underground bass scene and was diagnosed with Leukaemia last November and now urgently needs a bone marrow transplant to save her life, was awarded for her outstanding contribution to the breaks scene.
