For Internet Week, SoundCtrl had its second annual FlashFWD Awards to honor the companies and people innovating the way technology and music come together. There were the obvious winners such as Creators Project, as well as SoundCloud, which has been building a following over the past four years. But there were also a couple of small start ups such as SoundTracking, an iPhone app which allows people to share the soundtrack of their lives, that came away with awards.
The post-show performers were Pusha T and Ryan Leslie. Unfortunately most people were too busy drinking from the open bar to notice Break Science, and after Kanye West didn’t show up for his rumored drop by performance with Pusha many people left. Too bad for them, they missed an amazing surprise visit during Ryan Leslie’s set by Mr Hudson.
