A celebration of independent music, the AIM Awards returned last night (September 2nd) to The Brewery venue in Camberwell.
It was an evening to remember, with long term Clash favourites such as Hyperdub's Kode9 (pictured) receiving prestigious awards.
Domino won Independent Label of The Year, while London Grammar picked up two awards: Independent Breakthrough of The Year and PPL Award For Most Played New Independent Act.
