Kuala Lumpur, November 30 – The VIMA 2010 nominee list was revealed last night after 3 months of hype, and once again, produced a big bag of surprises.

The 2nd annual Malaysian Independent music awards brought together a strange flock of bedroom DJ’s, college acts, indie superstars, genre bending collaborations and even independent acts of different nationalities.

Last year’s big winner, hip-hopper Altimet, and rising R&B act James Baum both bagged 6 nominations each. But even they were outshined by the rockers, Deja Voodoo Spells, who led the field with 9 nominations including their role as part of the indie supergroup, The M.A.D project, featuring Melissa Indot on vocals and Altimet providing the rap bits.

“VIMA is like the alternate universe for music awards. It’s a platform where rules are often bent and broken, and where the spirit of creativity and true talent is fleshed out. Its an award show like no other, with eccentric awards title (Best Song to Play At a Campfire and To Do Away With Monday Morning Blues/ Most Mindboggling Genre Bender), an informal awards event where anything goesand it doesnt matter what race, nationality or language package the independent acts come in. It’s a place where formal criteria is booted out and everyone is united by one common passion -Music! That’s why VIMA 2010 has garnered so much global interest” said Siva Chandran, Managing Editor, Voize.my and the founder of VIMA and AVIMA.
