Kreesha Turner, A Game, Dru, The Airplane Boys, and Hall of Fame inductee Michie Mee also graced the stage on Monday evening.

Although mainstream artists do often take home awards — and why wouldn't they? — the event also highlights up and coming DJ talent in Canada.

Calling someone a troll is a troll move in and of itself.

I dont think deadau5 would call himself an 'electro dj' or even like that term. Producer/Performer maybe... but 'electro dj' just doesn't seem to fit. Then again, these awards seem to have house music tacked on as an afterthough.
