On Thursday 4th November, the global house community came together to celebrate house music in London, at Neighbourhood venue. With an audience of the industry's finest plus clubbers and fans from all over the world, the inaugural House Music Awards showcased some of the finest talent that house music has to offer - past, present and future. The party was a real success and a great start for the House Music Awards, with guest sets from Roger Sanchez & Nic Fanciulli, an impromptu accapella performance of "All I Do", an exclusive live performance of the brand new vocal version of "Strings of Life", Junior Jack, Tom Neville, Frankie Knuckles, Robert Owens, Marshall Jefferson, Yousef, ATFC and Steve Mac all in the house.
