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.

Ministry of Sound’s “The Annual 2013 Tour”

COVER_MOS_ANNUAL_2013

Mixed by one of Australia’s most formidable duos The Only, and resident fresh-maker Tom Piper, each disc has been finely crafted, creating a phenomenally unique compilation bouncing full of rhythm and delivering what is arguably the best Annual to your stereo yet.

The Only thrash Disc one with a diverse mix of pop and club jams, summoning the arrival of summer with tracks and remixes from the likes of Aviici, Example, Rita Ora, Porter Robinson, Vandalism & iKid, Mobin Master & Ian Carey, Marina & The Diamonds and Florence & The Machine.

Tom Piper loads up the second disc with the best club and EDM hits of the year, featuring the latest from Knife Party, DJ Fresh, 360, The Bloody Beetroots, The Presets, Rudimental, The Aston Shuffle, Wolfgang Gartner, and will.i.am/Eva Simons.

With 45 tracks molded into two discs of dance music perfection, this is the one album which no dance music lover should live without!
