Clean Bandit and Aphex Twin Take Home GRAMMYs
The Dance/Electronic portion of the GRAMMYs have concluded. Shortly after Tiesto was announced as the winner of the Best Remixed Recording category for his "Birthday Treament Remix" of John Legend's "All Of Me," Clean Bandit and Aphex Twin have been awarded the GRAMMYs for Best Dance Recording and Best Dance/Electronic Album, respectively.
The U.K. group Clean Bandit has won the award for Best Dance Recording with their hit single, "Rather Be," which bested Basement Jaxx's "Never Say Never," Disclosure's collaboration with Mary J. Blige, "F For U," Duke Dumont's anthem with Jax Jones "I Got U," and ZHU's "Faded." The Clean Bandit single was released on January 17, 2014 via Warner Music U.K.. The music video for the single currently has over 225 million views on YouTube, while the single has clocked in over 32 million plays on Soundcloud. You can purchase the track on iTunes.
For the Best Dance/Electronic Album category, Aphex Twin's Syro wins the GRAMMY over Deadmau5's While (1<2), Little Dragon's Nabuma Rubberband, Rôyksopp & Robyn's Do It Again and Mat Zo's Damage Control. The twelve-track winning album marked Aphex Twin's first album in twelve years. Syro was released on September 22, 2014 on Warp Records. You can download the album on iTunes.
The only thing that remains is to see if DJ Snake and Lil Jon's music video for "Turn Down For What" will take the GRAMMY for Best Music Video. Anyone that has seen the music video knows that this should be an easy win for DJ Snake and Lil Jon.
