LCD Soundsystem, Kraftwerk top CamelPhat & Gorillaz at Grammy awards
For the first time since 2003, the famed Grammy Awards took place outside of Los Angeles. Held at the prestigious Madison Square Garden in New York City, the music industry’s A-listers put on a show. From Bruno Mars to Sylvan Esso, the 60th annual Grammy Awards had it all, including some of the best electronic music from 2017. While Camelphat and Elderbrook‘s ‘Cola‘ made unprecedented waves in the House music scene, it didn’t make enough to beat out LCD Soundsystem‘s ‘Tonite‘, for Best Dance Recording.
With artists such as Odesza, Gorillaz, Camelphat, Mura Masa and Bonobo all nominated for various awards, the electronic music category was well represented. Bonobo‘s ‘Bambra‘, Camelphat and Elderbrook’s ‘Cola‘, Gorillaz’s ‘Andromeda‘, ODESZA’s ‘Line Of Sight‘ and LCD Soundsystem’s ‘Tonite‘ were all nominated for Best Dance Recording.
While the nominees for Best Dance Recording were impressive, so too were the nominees for Best Dance/Electronic Album. Bonobo, ODESZA, Mura Masa, Sylvan Esso and Kraftwerk were all in the running to take home the prestigious award. Despite excellent campaigns from Bonobo and 21-year-old Mura Masa, it was Kraftwerk’s ‘3-D The Catalogue‘ which won Best Dance/Electronic Album. In addition to this, American record producer Latroit, a.k.a Static Revenger won Best Remixed Recording for his remix of Depeche Mode‘s ‘You Move‘.
