The nominees for the 64th annual GRAMMY Awards were announced today. They include some of dance music's biggest stars, many with first-time nominations. It's further confirmation that dance music no longer sits at the fringes of the music industry and is a bonafide art form. 

Marshmello, Illenium, Black Coffee, Major Lazer, and Chicago house duo Ten City received their first GRAMMY noms. It's a diverse and robust showing for the best dance/electronic album. The only GRAMMY vet on this list is Sylvan Esso, who was previously nominated in 2017.   

The best dance/electronic recording category is stacked with well-known names who have already made a list as either award winners or nominees, including Rüfüs Du Sol, Caribou, James Blake, Tiësto, David Guetta, and Afrojack. 

The dance/electronic categories are typically sparse on female nominees, and this year is no waiver. The three women nominated in the three dance/electronic categories are Amelia Meath of Sylvian Esso, Griff featured on the 3scape Drm Remix of Zedd's "Inside Out," and 2017 GRAMMY winner Tracy Young for the Fashionably Late remix of KD Langs "Constant Craving."

The awards ceremony will take place on January 31, 2022. View a complete list of the 2022 GRAMMY nominations on their website.
