Francophone rap phenomenon Roméo Elvis and pop sensation Bazart divided the most important prizes at this year's Red Bull Elektropedia Awards. Roméo Elvis took home Best Album (Morale) and Best Live Act, while also receiving the Chase Award for best Belgian urban act. Bazart officially became Artist Of The Year, and took gold in Best Song.
Other remarkable winners are Charlotte de Witte (Best Producer), SX (Best Video), Pomrad (Best Remix), TLP (Best MC), LeFtO (Best Radio) and Amelie Lens (Breakthrough Artist). AUDRI, WWWater and Farrago were tipped as most promising artists.
For the second year in a row, Dour won Best Festival. And the surprise of the evening: after a reign of six years, Antwerp's Ampère dethroned the legendary Fuse as Best Club. Finally, 2ManyDj's passed the torch as Best Belgian DJ.
