Hosted by TRIXX, in addition to the award ceremonies a series of performances livened up the night, the highlight of which was a Dj Anchor-produced special tribute to the late Beastie Boy Adam Yauch by SUPERNATURALZ Crew. Kreesha Turner, A Game, Dru, The Airplane Boys, and Hall of Fame inductee Michie Mee also graced the stage on Monday evening.

Founded by Mike Zafiris, the Stylus Awards are designed to recognize homegrown DJs, hop hop artists, producers and Canadian club culture in general. Although mainstream artists do often take home awards — and why wouldn't they? — the event also highlights up and coming DJ talent in Canada. For a full list of winners, check out the Stylus website.
