Let’s get to know the works that are nominated for Best Electronic Music Song and Album categories with the difference of Now You Tech.
Jayda G – Both Of Us
Canadian-born, London-based female artist Jayda G made a name for herself at international festivals such as the Dekmantel and Melt festival with her melodic house-style sets. The artist, who signed his first album in 2018, has managed to become one of the names in the industry, although he is new. The song Both Of Us, released on July 3, 2020, under the Ninja Tune label, transports us back to a hot summer sunset with its groovy melody and rhythms.
KAYTRANADA – 10% ft. Kali Uchis
Kaytranada, who skillfully blends RB and House rhythms with his unique style, is one of the nominees for the Best Electronic Music Song with the 10% track he produced with Kali Uchis. The music clip for the track is inspired by the fashion of House music events in Chicago and Detroit in the 1980s. The piece, which is seen as the favourite of the category by many, will make you wiggle.
Flume feat. Toro y Moi – The Difference
Flume won the Best Electronic Music Grammy Award for “Skin” in 2017, and this year, she is nominated for Best Electronic Music Song for her song The Difference with American Chillwave / Indie Band Toro Y Moi. It is a very enjoyable song to listen to with its psychedelic clip and assertive rhythms.
Disclosure, Aminé, slowthai – My High
Disclosure, which has been nominated for 5 times Grammy before but never received an award, this year was nominated for both the best track and the best album with My High. Do you think Disclosure will win the Grammy award this year and get rid of the Grammy curse that has been haunting it since 2015?
Diplo & SIDEPIECE – On My Mind
Diplo, one of the leading names of the Progressive House world, won the Best Electronic Music Song award for “Electricity” in 2019. Diplo, who has 6 Grammy nominations since 2009, is one of the ambitious names of this year. The song On My Mind will entertain you with its colourful and creative clip.
In the Best Electronic Music Album Category, in addition to the above artists, American DJ Baauer is one of the nominees to win the award with his album, Venezuelan-born producer Arca Kick i, and French DJ Madeon with his album Good Faith.
The fact that the Grammy Awards are American-based and giving priority to popular names in the market caused many artists to boycott this year. Grammy, as every year, instead of the European electronic music giants that determine the pulse of the world techno world in 2021, includes mostly “mainstream” types of songs and titles played on American radios. Grammys mean the same for the world of music what the Oscar Awards are for the world of cinema; For this reason, we should not forget that these types of awards care more about popularity than quality, we should sit back and enjoy the show.
