‘ With the evolution of dance music in Southern Africa being so massive, this platform got to honour the fan favourites’ says conceptualizer Ricardo da Costa. He also adds ‘ These accolades voted solely by the public lends a hand to its authenticity by applauding the people who create the music for them. With the launch of DMASA in 2017, we look forward to celebrating yet another year of great dance music with these awards.’
The DMASA also hopes to stimulate dialogue and create a forum for songwriters, performers and dance music musicians. Through this exchange the DMASA hopes to draw attention to the artists/DJs and ideas at work in the dance music industry and promote greater participation and recognition for South African dance music abroad.
The DMASA present an opportunity for music enthusiasts from around the country to celebrate their favourite DJs and artists by nominating or voting for them as a potential category winners.
