It was time to dust off our glad-rags this week as we headed to the extremely glam Q awards.  Taking place at London’s Grosvenor House Hotel, the prestigious awards celebrated new and emerging music, whilst also paying homage to those fantastic artists who have changed and influenced music forever. This year, we were delighted to present Gary Numan, English singer, songwriter, musician and record producer, with the ‘Innovation of Sound Award’. Speaking out before the awards, Gary said:

“Sound is the most important aspect of making music to me, it’s why electronic music has been such an obsession. It allows you the opportunity to constantly create new and exciting sounds. I’m very grateful to Q for the award, and very proud.”
Other award winners included Noel Gallagher, Ed Sheeran, James Bay and Duran Duran.

Congratulations everyone and thanks for having us!

Opting for a wetsuit instead, Sony’s Action Cam took an exhilarating dive this week, swimming amongst the sharks. In this nail biting video, you can see avid scuba diver and part time shark whisperer, Hugo Reiner getting up close and personal with some of nature’s finest creatures. Check the video out for yourself:
