Chase & Status, Fred Again.. and Nia Archives score big at Dance Awards 2022
The winners of the annual Radio 1 Dance Awards 2022 have been revealed.
The awards honour the biggest moments of Dance this year, with Chase & Status, Fred Again.. and Nia Archives all picking up an accolade for their contribution to the genre.
The winners were chosen by a panel made up of Radio 1 Dance DJs and producers.
Danny Howard says:“2022 has been an amazing year for dance music in terms of releases, new artists breaking through and in the mainstream. More importantly, it’s the first full year we’ve had back in the clubs, Ibiza and festivals since the pandemic which has created so many great moments. The Radio 1 Dance Awards is the perfect reflection of what has been a monumental year for the scene so I’d like to big up everyone shortlisted and say congratulations to all the winners. Thank you for the music and memories!”
