Latin Mixx Award 2013 Recap


The highlight and most anticipated event was the LMX DJ Choice Awards, on July 11, held at Stage48, New York City. The evening hosted some of the biggest tastemakers in the Latin music industry, along with honoring a Latin music legend as well as another who opened a path for Latinos in a new young genre of American music. The highlight of the awards show was the presentation of the two biggest honors of the night; LMX Icon Award recipient, Rubén Blades and LMX Trailblazer Award honoree Fat Joe. Rubén Blades said of the night, “Whenever someone considerably younger than me cites my music as an influence my feeling is one of gratefulness and of surprise. I appreciate and thank every one for their kind words and support.”  Entertainment for the night included master illusionist Elliot Zimet and an Icon tribute performance to Rubén Blades by La Reina Nueva. Lastly, 2 major announcements were also made, the selection of DJ Carlito as La Mega 97.9 FM’s Next in the Mixx; and a partnership between Latin Mixx and Universal Music Latin Entertainment, “presenting an opportunity for the future growth and a creative outlet for the Latino deejay,” said Kevin Montano, founder of the Latin Mixx Conference & DJ Choice Awards.
