The Grammy Awards have revealed their nominations for 2018’s show, including a slew of established electronic acts for the Best Dance Recording and Best Dance Album categories.
Bonobo, Kraftwerk, Mura Masa, Odeza and Sylvan Esso will go head-to-head for Best Dance/Electronic Album early nest year, with Flume taking out the gong for the coveted award in 2017.
