The 2018 Global Spin Award nominees have been announced, as well as the recipients for the “Lifetime Achievement Award” and “Breaking Barriers Award.”

Now in its sixth year, the Global Spin Awards have become a pillar of the music industry, and is celebrated by top-talent, including nominees, DJ Khaled, DJ Envy, Marshmello, The Chain Smokers and Funk Flex. Each year, the nominees are chosen from submissions across 30 categories, showcasing some of the most talented creators and breakthrough DJs. The most reputable DJs in the industry, celebrities and top music executives, will gather to celebrate their work and the growth of the DJ industry.

“DJs are innovators, continuously changing the industry through their creative sounds and love for music. The Global Spin Awards [were] created to spotlight the industry and honor these artists,” said Shawn Prez, founder of the Global Spin Awards. “We are recognizing the top DJs for their achievements and contributions to the music industry and our culture.”

The Global Spin Awards also announced the 2018 honoree recipients: Grammy Award-winning songwriter/producer Timbaland will receive the “Lifetime Achievement Award” and CEO of So So Def and Grammy Award-winning songwriter-producer Jermaine Dupri will receive the “Breaking Barriers Award.” Each year GSA recognizes two respected visionaries that have contributed to the continuous growth and success of the industry. This year, both recipients share a timeless legacy and influence on music, and beyond.

Last year’s show was hosted by rap legend Tip “T.I.” Harris and attended by some of the industry’s biggest entertainers including Dave Chappelle, DJ Khaled, Joey Badass, No Limit and more. The 2017 winners of the Global Spin Awards included: DJ Khaled (Hip Hop DJ of the Year, DJ Album of the Year, DJ of the Year); Steve Aoki (EDM DJ of the Year), DJ Clark Kent (Lifetime Achievement Honoree) and Spinderella (Breaking Barriers Honoree).
