The biggest awards in dance music took place at Dolce last night.

The International Dance Music Awards' producers seemed to have their short-attention-spanned audience in mind when they designed the event, keeping the awards-presentation time to a minimum, and focusing instead on the performances and afterparty.

Still, 56 awards were announced. Some at a breakneck pace. But Crossfade was able to jot down many of them.
