‘Tis the season in which bands, vocalists and producers get the ultimate form of recognition for their talent; we’re now officially in the homestretch approaching the GRAMMYs!
The 62nd installment of the GRAMMYs will take place at 5 P.M. Pacific Standard Time on Jan. 26, 2020, at Staples Center in Los Angeles. The show will be hosted by Alicia Keys, and aired on CBS.
The academy announced all nominations this week; and some of the EDM industry’s top artists rightfully made the cut. We aren’t fortune tellers with accurate outcome predictions over here, but we’ll tell you this: it’s going to be a close call for the Best Dance Recording and Best Dance/Electronic Album categories. Check out the candidates for yourself.
GRAMMYs 2020: Best Dance Recording
“Got to Keep On,” The Chemical Brothers
“Piece of Your Heart,” Meduza Featuring Goodboys
“Underwater,” Rufus Du Sol
“Midnight, Hour,” Skrillex & Boys Noize Featuring Ty Dolla $ign Boys Noize & Skrillex
GRAMMYs 2020: Best Dance/Electronic Album
No Geography, The Chemical Brothers
Hi This Is Flume (Mixtape), Flume
Solace, Rufus Du Sol
Flume and Skrillex have clearly came out on top in years’ past. The Chemical Brothers have several GRAMMYs under their belt as well; their first dating back to 1998. Nonetheless, we have to give a big ups to Rufus Du Sol as first-time nominees for earning a nod in two categories. It is the first time Meduza and Apparat have found their work Academy-recognized as well. Tycho received a nomination back in 2017, but didn’t end up earning a trophy of his own. Bonobo’s track is a well-deserved addition to the list, as his soundscapes have captured hearts for decades with a past non-winning 2016 nomination.
