Great news for all – 2014 will see more dance music artists at the 56th Annual Grammy Awards.

In 2013, dance music at the 55th Grammys had only two categories – Best Dance Recording and Best Dance/Electronica Album and dubstep maestro Skrillex bagged both the awards! Other nominees included Avicii, Kaskade, Steve Aoki and Deadmau5 among others.

This time, we have some of the most adored electronic artists like Daft Punk, Disclosure, Armin van Buuren and Pretty Lights. Daft Punk has undoubtedly stood out this year with their new album ‘Random Access Memories’ and have been nominated under ‘Album of the Year’ and ‘Record of the Year’ among other categories.
