Shortlist Revealed for The Return of the Illicit Groove Annual Poll & Awards. Read how you can get involved.

Thanks to our guest panel of DJs, music promoters, journalists, radio producers and broadcasters we can now publish their selections for the Shortlist for this year’s annual awards.  The poll is now open.

VOTE HERE

As usual you can vote for your choice of winner in each of the four categories; Favourite Track, Favourite Album, Favourite Re-Issue and Favourite Compilation released between November 2017 and November 2018.

The Longlist itself, published last month confirmed the quality of releases this past 12 months and proved to be a difficult task in narrowing down to this year’s Shortlist.  All definitely Grooves For The Global Leftfield #g4gl

The Illicit Grooves Radio Shows broadcast on the 14th and 21st of December will be Shortlist specials with tracks from two of the four categories featured in each show.  You can listen to both shows live on Starpoint Radio at 11pm (GMT) and the podcasts will be available the next day at 1pm (GMT) on our Soundcloud page.  Please follow us on Soundcloud.
