TAMPA, FLORIDA USA -- October 10, 2006:
The C.P.S. Industry Pioneer Award is to recognize important achievements of individuals who have made significant and identifiable contributions to any field in the community of computer DJing. The individual needs to be a recognized leader who revolutionized and/or forced a change in the disc jockey industry.
When individuals distinguish themselves in such a way that they stand out clearly as leaders in the birth of a nation, movement or industry they are recognized as pioneers.
The music and disc jockey industry is replete with such individuals whose lives have left a mark in time. Whether through their vision, their drive, their business acumen, their ability to search, to innovate or lead the way, these individuals form the character of our industry and become its heritage. They are the industry pioneers.
The 2006 C.P.S. Pioneer Award has been presented to K. Rogers a.k.a. Dr. Drax owner of Draxworks Technologies LLC and current President of the American Disc Jockey Association (ADJA) as a long time computer DJ activist, advocate, and educator.
Armed with strong opinions and often described as outspoken with an undisputed passion for technology and the disc jockey industry, Drax, in the 80s, worked in the engineering field involved in laser development utilized in military and medical fields.
