Yes, we here at Crossfade are degenerate gamblers. And 12 days ago, we proved it by laying down a few bets on the outcome of the Beatport Music Awards.
Well, the winners have been announced and we totally fucking cleaned up! The Beatport industry self-congratulations session went down last night at the Gansevoort Miami Beach Hotel. And just as we predicted, Deadmau5 scored a headphone-shaped statuette for Community Choice Artist of the Year while Swedish House Mafia's big-room bastard "One" kicked ass in the Community Choice Track of the Year category.
Now ... Where's our money, bitches? We'll take either PayPal or cash by mail C/O Miami New Times, 4500 Biscayne Blvd., #205.
See the cut for a full list of Beatport Music Awards 2011 winners.
