WMC's IDMA Awards, The Fuzz and a Weak Bladder

Share this post:
 

The IDMA Awards were held last night, or was that two nights ago? Where are we? Who is that drinking our water bottle in our room? Whose room is this? Why are you putting cuffs on me? Ha ha. Wait, no, really. Why are you dressed like a cop? Why are you arresting me? Does this go on my census return?

We’ll figure it out. In the meantime, among the winners, and the also-rans…(Full disclosure: These are only the winners we voted for. The rest, in our opinion, aren’t valid).

Best Electro Track winner Deadmau5, aka Joel Zimmerman, said: “I drank myself to oblivion last night, the hand hurts from too much high fiveing.

We hadn’t heard of a club in South Beach called Oblivion, but as long as there’s no beefy bouncer stationed there with an agenda for our jaw, we’d be into checking it out.

And Best Remixer and former DJ Times cover story Kaskade said: “Funny thing, I was taking a pee when they announced and I missed all of it. No lie.”

We’ll be announcing the Weak Bladder Award shortly, but we have a pretty good idea of which way it’s, uh, leaning.
