The first House Music Awards took place last night at exclusive west London club Neighbourhood, with an array of house music stars music turning out to honour those at the forefront of the scene.

Taking away the most prizes on the night were UK house label Defected Records who walked away with a grand total of 6 awards including Label of the Year, Artist of the Year and Album of the Year, both from the man of the night, Junior Jack.

Roger Sanchez picked up the award for DJ of the Year graciously presented by member of Everything But The Girl and Buzzin Fly Records boss Ben Watt before playing a surprise hour set much to the delight of the industry folk and the few lucky fans who were present.

Music was the reason for the awards and the organisers put on a massive lineup of live acts and PA's from some of the best singers and producers in the business. Highlights of the night had to be Reel People who blew the crowd away with their groovy house vocals and their amazingly talented drummer.
