The 54th Annual Grammy awards are this Sunday and I can’t wait. This year, Skrillex, one of my favorite EDM artists is nominated not once, but five times. Not surprisingly, he’s nominated in the Best Dance Recording category, but more impressive is he’s going up against Nicki Minaj, the Band Perry, Bon Iver, and J. Cole for the Best New Artist category.
As someone who listens to EDM almost constantly, this is an awesome thing to hear and will be even better if he wins. Although this kind of music has been around a long time, it has recently been brought into the spotlight and become more widely accepted. Skrillex being nominated five times is a huge demonstration of the growing popularity and public love of dance music.
