Mixcloud announces 2018 winners of Online Radio Awards

katbrownsugar, Mixcloud Online Radio Awards

This year, Mixcloud hosted the fifth edition of its Online Radio Awards.

With submissions opening in April, the winners have now been chosen and announced. Featuring 29 categories, each segment is judged by a publication or partner. Crack Magazine were on board to host the Rising Star category this year, and we’re pleased to announce that katbrownsugar is this year’s winner.

With her summery blend of R&B, afrobeats, soul and hip-hop, katbrownsugar’s idiosyncratic mixture of sounds reflects the music we champion at Crack Magazine. As we’re stepping into warmer climes, her sonics contain the versatile ability to soundtrack those moments winding down or dancing.

The awards show celebrates independent radio and provides emerging artists and broadcasters with a platform. Featuring 29 categories, Mixcloud introduced the Listeners’ Choice Award category for the first time this year. DJs, radio presenters, podcasters and stations were able to nominate themselves for the award, and fans were encouraged to nominate their favourite artists or personalities for the shortlists.
