The Recording Academy has announced the nominees for the Grammy Awards 2024, which includes nominations for the new electronic music category, Best Pop Dance Recording. So, who’s in the running for the new category and other music production-focused categories, Producer of the Year, Best Dance/Electronic Recording and Best Dance/Electronic Music Album?
Fred Again.. and Skrillex’s Grammy nominations
Having made himself a household name in 2023, British producer Fred Gibson AKA Fred Again.. is leading the charge with a total of four nominations in three categories. Gibson’s prolific collaborator and fellow superstar producer Skrillex makes a return to the Grammy’s this year with nominations for his album Quest For Fire, and for his collaboration with Gibson and UK grime act Flowdan on Rumble, which has been nominated for Best Dance/Electronic Recording.
Gibson is up for Best Dance/Electronic Recording twice, with Rumble and also for his track Strong, made in collaboration with The XX’s Romy. His album, Actual Life 3 (January 1 – September 9 2022), is pitted against Skrillex’s Quest For Fire in the Best Dance/Electronic Music Album.
Elsewhere, Gibson is listed alongside the likes of Ice Spice and Victoria Monét in the Best New Artist category. This will be Gibson’s second time as a contender at the Grammy’s, having been nominated in 2022 for his work on Ed Sheeran’s Bad Habits. Skrillex, meanwhile, may be picking up his ninth and tenth Grammy Awards, following 15 nominations and eight wins since 2011.
Aphex Twin’s Grammy nomination
Electronic music pioneer Aphex Twin won a Grammy in 2015 with his sixth studio album, Syro. Since then, the British producer – real name Richard D. James – has released a handful of EPs under various monikers but it’s this year’s single, Blackbox Life Recorder 21f, that’s been nominated for a Grammy. Placed in the Best Dance/Electronic Recording category, Aphex Twin will be going up against fellow UK artists Disclosure, James Blake, Romy and Fred Again. Only one non-Brit is up for Best Dance/Electronic Recording: Skrillex.
