Lee Mvtthews came in third for Best Newcomer, getting a shout out for the massive work they've done representing New Zealand on the world stage.

"This is the first time an act outside of Europe has done so well in this category.

Representing New Zealand, these guys are a huge deal down-under and their reputation is going global.


These guys represent a whole thriving homegrown scene out there which we were all so jealous of."

Three of the big awards went to Charlotte Haining took out Best Vocal over kiwi nominee Elipsa, A.M.C scored the title of Best DJ for another year and Camo & Krooked for Best Producer.
