Scheduled for January 28th, the 60th Grammy Awards will be joining many well-known names of the music world in New York at the Madison Square Garden for another award presentation that distinguishes the best in several categories of different musical styles.

With Hip-Hop dominating in various categories with albums by Jay-Z and Kendrick Lamar, electronic music is also well represented on these Grammys, and will certainly be even better represented next year when these awards will also distinguish the “Best Techno Artist”.

Amongst many names, artists and producers such as Zedd compete in the category of “Best Duo/Pop Group” with his collaboration with Alessia Cara, alongside The Chainsmokers and Coldplay with “Something Just Like This”, Bonobo, Camelphat & Elderbrook, Gorillaz, LCD Soundsystem, and Odesza in the category of “Best Dance Recording”, Kraftwerk, Mura Masa, Odesza, and Sylvan Esso in “Best Dance/Electronic Album” and Calvin Harris to compete in the category of “Producer of the Year”.
