Scribe Stands Out at bNets

14th September 2004

Named Best Vocalist/MC in 2003, Scribe has proven his popularity and skill with the overwhelming success of debut album The Crusader, named Best Hiphop Release at the 2004 bNet NZ Music Awards. 

Scribe was also awarded Best NZ Remix for "Not Many", and the newly introduced Outstanding Achievement Award, the only category to be decided by panel.

The awards, which were held at the Bruce Mason Centre in Auckland, were started as an alternative to other industry awards ceremonies, and to reinforce the ongoing commitment of bNet stations to breaking and developing new talent by recognising those artists not yet acknowledged in the mainstream.

Another act to have proven their potential for longevity are The Mint Chicks, who follow on from last year’s nomination to secure Best Rock Release for their Octagon Octagon Octagon EP, and Best Song for single number two: "Post No Bills".

Newcomers The Checks were voted this year’s Most Promising New Act, Open Souls took home Best Unreleased Song for "In Our Hands", and Fat Freddy’s Drop won the vote for Best Live Act. Shapeshifter’s "Been Missin" was the most played track across the bNet airwaves, while Concord Dawn took a much deserved bow in reception of awards for Best Electronic Release, and the much coveted Best Album.
