Lifetime Achievement Award

PIAS (Play It Again, Sam)

[PIAS] started out as two guys in the basement of Kenny’s parents in Brussels, but over the years it has grown into a 250-strong independent music company supporting the cream of international independent music. The Belgian label has played a key part in the success of acts such as Agnes Obel, Depeche Mode, Editors, Front 242, Laurent Garnier, Moby, The Prodigy, Soulwax / 2manydjs and many more. And although their professional career now spans more than thirty-three year in which they experienced ups-and-downs, their prime goal is still the same: boost brilliant artists.

Yves Deruyter

Deruyter started his career as a DJ in 1985, playing legendary clubs such as Globe, Cherry Moon, Extreme and La Rocca. But it’s especially as a producer that he started to make waves. Through the Bonzai Records powerhouse he released tracks such as Animals, Rave City and The Rebel, which all became classic dance anthems in just a matter of time. But also as Cherry Moon Trax, the musical outlet of the Cherry Moon, he succeeded in creating iconic singles. As Deruyter’s influence is not to be underestimated, we gladly hand him this award.
