The 2013 Best Dance/Electronica Album Grammy Nominees

deadmau5 grammy carpet The 2013 Best Dance/Electronica Album Grammy Nominees

We've already taken a look at the previous Grammy winners in the Best Dance/Electronica Album category, so it is only fitting that we look at the nominees for this year's award.

2013's group features artists that actually make waves within the scene, with Skrillex, Deadmau5, Steve Aoki, Kaskade, and the Chemical Brothers all vying for the top prize. Forget the fact that Skrillex hasn't released his debut album yet, or that Deadmau5's project was seen as an "OK" release. The Grammys are looking to recognize EDM properly, just like Billboard has and damn near the rest of the American music scene are as well.

One thing that is awesomely awful? We have to wait until 2014 to see Zedd's Clarity and Calvin Harris' 18 Months go head-to-head. Let's look back at the albums that the Grammys considered to be the best representation of the EDM scene this year.

    the fact that skrillex won over THE CHEMICAL BROTHERS shows that this country has no idea what actual good electronic music is.

      the actions of a singular voting committee reflects the thoughts of an entire nation?

        obviously most of it if he won over a huge international act that has been around for a long long time

          i don’t think that’s how it works. plus, it’s not like they had done an album of new material. plus they were the only ones to have won the best album nom twice. your logic is off.
