Grammy Wins for Danger Mouse, Afrojack, Guetta…
Not too many surprises last night at the Grammy Awards, not for us, anyway. We suspected David Guetta and Afrojack were the betting man’s pick for Best Remixed Recording, for their work on Madonna’s “Revolver.” Still, we were glad that EDM was prominently in the mix.
Tweeted Guetta: “I can’t believe I won a Grammy. 2 years in a row I’m even more happy and proud for @djafrojack”
La Roux took home “Best Electronic/Dance” album; besting a field that included BT, The Chemical Brothers, Goldfrapp, and Groove Armada.
Tweeted BT: “My life long dream of Grammy nomination is accomplished. There is no win greater than this dream realized. The finish line is crossed.”
And the perks of a Grammy nomination were not lost on BT.
“Went to @TheGRAMMYs gifting Suite and they gave me a Epiphone John Lennon edition guitar. Unreal. I nearly cried. Thank you, I’m stunned.”
Also, “Producer of the Year, Non-Classical,” went to Danger Mouse—for “Broken Bells” (Broken Bells); “Dark Night Of The Soul (Danger Mouse And Sparklehorse); and “Tighten Up” (The Black Keys)–a former DJ Times cover subject.
