UA.com choice awards


The first of its kind and designed to celebrate the soul of dance music, the Undaground Archives.com CHOICE Awards represent the people’s selections of the top places, projects and artists in world-wide underground dance music. Through open nominations and global voting, our electronic community determined who earned a place among the industry’s elite each year by deciding the winners, then helping celebrate them at our annual presentation events. Featured during the Billboard Dance Music Summit, the CHOICE Awards quickly became a much anticipated part of New York’s then thriving multi-culti club scene. From our first presentation event at Lower East Side venue, Opaline (now Drom) to our 5th Annual Girl Power Gala Edition at Cielo, the CHOICE Awards offered an unparalleled chance to honor, network and connect with your favorite legends and meet emerging talent at our ecstatic, one-night only events.
