    I’ve been watching this scene for a while now and these
    awards seem to get more incestuos each year.  Run by Abel Reynolds
    (Fingerlickin’ Management), Will Lardner (MD – Ghetto Funk), Ash Richardson
    (NSB) and Jimmy Brayks (NSB) you’d think they would keep their interests out of
    the running to avoid suspicion of a fixed voting system – yet here is the
    extent of their acts/artists/labels chosen for this years’ nominations (and
    guessing there are probably more):

    Abel Reynolds (co-runs Breakspoll and up for Outstanding Contribution Award)

    Abel Reynolds (Krafty Kutz under Abel’s management up for Best Album/Best DJ)

    Abel Reynolds (Elite Force under Abel’s management up for Best Producer/Best
    Remix/Best Track)

    Abel Reynolds (Deekline & Ed Solo both on Ableton’s management roster and
    up for Best Remix)

    Abel Reynolds (A Skillz under Abel’s management and up for Best Free track /
    Best DJ/Best Producer)

    Will “Streetwise” Lardner (Co-runs Breakspoll and his own label
    Ghetto Funk up for Best Album – the free and poor Icons Vol 2)/ Best label (!)
    AND Best Website) 

    Will “Streetwise” Lardner (Stickybudz is on Will’s roster for Ghetto
    Funk Agency and although he’s been DJing many years – is now up for Best New
    DJ)

    Will “Streetwise” Lardner (HongKongPingPong on Ghetto Funk’s Roster
    and up for best small event)

    Jimmy Brayks (Co-runs Breakspoll and his own NSB radio and nuskoolbreaks.co.uk
    up for Best Radio Station AND Best website – having ensured wins in past
    awards)

    I won’t harp on, but sure there are plenty more examples of”vested”
    interests once again in this and previous years’ Brokenpoll – including the
    fact that Annie Nightingale wins Best Radio Show year after year as a condition
    of her agreeing to present the awards and Breakspoll co-organiser Ash
    Richardson (Richie Balboa) winning an award for Best Breakthrough DJ in the
    past after bagging a plethora of gigs from his buddy – you guessed it – Jimmy
    Brayks.  So let me hereby call for someone to start their own unbiased,
    fair, true and trustworthy awards so that more real talent and the public’s
    choice can get recognition.
     There’s a whole host of artists
    and acts not getting the credit they deserve.

    I fully expect Jimmy Brayks or another of the organisers to delete or refute
    the above or claim that it’s just amazing coincidence or the stupendous talent
    of all their people over the rest of the scene chosen by the public, but most
    know the truth about what’s going on – they’re either too polite to
    confront the issue or don’t want to bite the hand that’s feeding them with gigs
    etc.  It’s time to stand up to this back patting nonsense and monopoly by
    refusing to support such a shambolic event.

    Vote for BrokenPoll…..

      This will be the last time that i vote !! I agree with you 100 percent Dan !! Its gettin quite shiesty !! a dubstep nomination in BREAKspoll ?? Thats just icing on the cake compared to the best radio station and website nominations !! NONE of those stations have even came close to the accomplishments of some other LIVE stations out there … NSB is bright pink and doesent even have a LIVE video feeed??? Is that the computer spinnin ??? Who would know ?? And Nubreaks has just gotten to the point where they have been standin still since last years nominations ! How are these top nominees even selected? Its easy to see whats happenin … No wonder the industry has gotten shady !!

    Skrillex ??? really ?? Since when is Dubstep breakbeats??

    • Jim

      Wow wow wow you have SEO? Wow wow. Shame you didn’t turn that SEO into votes… If only google made popularity polls…

  • We have a lot to say about this year! We are in the top 2.15  of all websites and we know for a fact that this was a set up job. We do not want to run in Breakspoll next year. We don’t need you. You need us! We have used all resources to make video a mandatory thing for all radio stations to use proving the mix. Other stations have used what TLA has brought in the year and 4 months we had opened! EVERYONE IS CHASING US! There is no question about that. Other stations are using OUR web page designs for the websites and now won the top 5 best websites? Have you actually been to these stations? Alls Im going to say is PINK????? ARE YOU SERIOUS?
      65% of the nominations were from last year or the year before that and they did not even take any of the real nominations that were submitted for this year? Natural Nate Did not want to Run in Breakspoll this year. He did not mind to have the nominations in label and E.P. but really wanted the other hardworking people to have the same chance he did. We had our our list of just as good or better DJ’s and Producers that should have made the list!

      For 2 years in a row, Nubreaks has turned in their Votes 2-3 weeks late. DJs have been burned by them because of this, and feelings are soon hurt. Some of these Djs are now with TLA. These poor DJs thinking they made a nomination posting out to soon find themselves stripped of the nomination because of the sudden change. How can someone make the top 5 Being 2-3 weeks late? Its B.S. Breakpoll
    puts in last years nominations because of slacking companies and that’s
    fair to change it up like that? We saw this 2 years in a row! No offense to Bruise Your Body Breaks but, That is NOT A DJ! That’s how sloppy this poll is! 2 years in a row. Some of our nominations from last year was submitted by Breakspoll without using all of the new talent that should have been there!  There was never a nomination submitted under BYBB by itself in Best in DJ. They did that last year also is point!
      TLA has some of the best DJ’s in the industry and is more than willing to prove it on the Tables vs a fake poll that nobody gets to see. {Numbers}  TLA will never be a kiss ass station to get to the top. We are already on the top and do not need to stoop that low. Its funny also that all the radio stations are from the U.K. { No offense. } How can someone win best new DJ 3 years in a row? Please can someone tell us that? EVERYONE KNOWS the truth. EVERYONE!
     We have watched EVERYONE’S stats from the backside and have taken tons of time and money to insure that we are the best of the best. Stats do not lie. We will take our stats against  ANYONE in the industry! We will take OUR REAL DJS against anyone in the industry. How can a controller DJ be a DJ for one? No offense. We have tried hard to keep this industry clean to find ourselves in a dirty voting poll! Roughtempo is an all genre station. People keep asking if we are all breaks? No we are not. But the simple fact is we have the best breaks DJ’s in the world. Whats the difference?
     We do want to say that we are proud of all the people that made the nominations. Take everything that you can get for self promotion. That’s what everyone is after and use it to the best of your abilities. Stay Humble. Hats off to the real DJs that made it in. Hats off to the producers working their tails off. It takes a lot of hard work and dedication to do a weekly show. This will never be a knock to any of you. Our DJ’s / Producers were very thankful and Honored at times for the nominations. Breakspoll should have kept it real!
     We have been asked ourselves to hold some type of awards for all genres and ALL SUB genres. We think there is a better way to have a fair Poll with EVERYONE INVOLVED. You guys really messed up. This only makes TLA want to rise further than everyone with fresh Ideas that everyone else claims to have already done. You guys have no Idea whats about to happen. Thank you for all of your lies. Please do not enter our last years nominations in again for next year or you can talk to our Lawyers!
