Christopher Lawrence has won "Best American DJ" at the International Dance Music Awards held at the Winter Music Conference in Miami in March 2005. His award was presented by Macy Gray in front of an audience of thousands of dance music professionals, who attended this year's event.

The International Dance Music Awards is considered one of the premiere awards show for the dance music industry. Being the first of its kind, it has set the precedent for all subsequent dance music awards shows. Over 10,000 ballots are cast to vote for the most innovative and elite artists, producers, promoters, remixers, and record labels in the industry.

Industry professionals gathered to pay tribute to those who achieved exceptional acclaim throughout the course of the previous year. With many live performances and celebrity presenters, the IDMA's is a must see event for anyone involved in the dance music industry.

Lawrence's "Best American DJ" win at the IDMA's follows his ranking as the #7 DJ in the world in DJ Magazine's 'Top 100' poll for 2004, and a recent "Best DJ" win at Dancestar USA.

Once an outsider in a world dominated by European and UK DJs, Lawrence has risen to the top of the global dance music heap. He is now considered one of the key global players and one America's leading dance music exports, playing main stage at the world's biggest festivals and superclubs. Dubbed a "Superstar DJ" by URB Magazine, and "One of the biggest names in the international dance scene" by CNN, Christopher commands similar respect from the international press, with M8 describing him as an "international jetsetting superstar", while DJ Magazine calls him "One of the most popular DJs on the global circuit".
