MUZIK MAKES THE PEOPLE COME TOGETHER

Fatboy Slim's much-acclaimed 'Weapon Of Choice' video wins Best Video...

FATBOY SLIM and NEW ORDER were the big winners at last night’s (October 11) MUZIK MAGAZINE DANCE AWARDS.

The ceremony, which was held at The Arches venue in central London, saw Slim pick up the accolade of Best Video for ‘Weapon Of Choice’. The video features actor Christopher Walken dancing in time to the track, and has already won six MTV Video Awards.

Other big winners included Sasha, who was awarded Best DJ, Basement Jaxx who won Best Group, and seminal dance group New Order, who were acclaimed for Outstanding Achievement in Dance Music.

New Order were unable to pick up their award in person as they were performing the second of a three-night residency at the London Brixton Academy, but did film a special ‘thank you’ video, as well as making it to the aftershow party.

Speaking about his award, vocalist Bernard Sumner said: “I think we’ve only ever won three awards in our career so far and this is the third, thanks Muzik!”
