It’s finally that time of year again. Time for the Superbowl of Music, one of the highest honors that a musician can receive. The 61st Annual Grammy’s are set to take place Feb. 10th 2019, and the nominations have arrived.
The competition this year seems mighty fierce in all 84 categories, but we wanted to take the time to shine the spotlight on the categories that include our favorite electronic artists. Few EDM artists throughout history have won a Grammy, considering that producer’s and DJs weren’t always spotlighted until electronic music started to become more and more popular.
Some artists that have won in the past consists of Skrillex, Daft Punk, Zedd to name a few. With that being said, I think we are all excited to see who will be walking away with the Grammy this year. So let’s go ahead and dig into these nominations.
