The Grammys Announce 2013 Nominees

Grammy-Awards-600x401

Dance music’s presence in last year’s Grammy Awards was undeniable, marking the first time a DJ had been nominated for the ‘Best New Artist‘ category. The DJs and producers who were big in our world had finally crossed over into mainstream relevance by way of Skrillex’s five nominations and three wins. This year, Skrillex received three nominations, each in the categories he won last year. Diplo’s nomination for ‘Best Producer‘ is also an accolade that is long overdue. Only three highly-recognizable dance music artists were nominated in 2012, but this time around there’s a much healthier selection.

Check below to find out who made the cut and in which categories.

Before you get up in arms about the fact that “Levels,” Fire & Ice, and Bangarang were released in 2011, it is important to note that the Grammys only consider releases from October 1st of 2011 to September 30th of 2012 — hence the reason Zedd’s Clarityhas not made the cut, having been released on October 2nd. While we won’t get into the politics of who we think should or should not be on the list of nominees (save that for later), we will say that you can expect a full rundown on who the hell Al Walser is and why his name is on this list.

Calvin Harris & More at Marquee Sydney!!

Hot on the heels of the news that Dirty South is coming home to bring in the New Year at Marquee Sydney, the club has announced more big-name acts. This time, it’s all happening around Stereosonic, with four of the festival’s headliners given a night each. Kicking things off is dance hitmaker Calvin Harris, who’ll be filling the main room on Friday 23 November, the night before he hits the Stereo mainstage. The DJ-producer has been keeping busy in recent months, and new album “18 Months” comes with guest appearances from Example, Kelis, Dillon Francis and Florence Welch.

After Stereosonic has wound up, fast-rising U.S. star Porter Robinson will be making his way to Marquee for an official afterparty. You can expect a livewire set from him. As he told inthemix, “I think a year ago I would’ve played the tracks that guaranteed me the best response possible. But I think now it’s more important to present something that’s unusual than perfect. I think it’s easy to provide a fairly-perfect DJ set, you know?”

From there, it’s the turn of Dutch big-room pro Sander van Doorn to headline a mid-week session on Wednesday 28 November. The Dutchman told Vibe at ADE that his recent career has been a whirlwind. “I just did a collaboration together with Mark Knight, and another with a dance group I can’t say too much about yet. My schedule is absolutely ridiculous right now.” Capping it all off is another Dutch big name, Chuckie, who has plenty of experience playing rooms like Marquee. That’s quite a run.

Marquee Stereosonic sideshows:

Friday 23 November – Calvin Harris [$50 on the door]
Saturday 24 November – Porter Robinson [$30 on the door or free with Stereosonic ticket stub]
Wednesday 28 November – Sander van Doorn [$30 on the door]
Friday 30 November – Chuckie [$30 on the door]
