Unless you live under a rock, you probably knew that the Grammys were last night. Dance music got its due before the telecast, which had too many sleepy ballads and some excellent performances by Kendrick Lamar, Kesha, Pink and Childish Gambino, among others. Bruno Mars swept the major three categories. For the major dance music categories, Kraftwerk, LCD Soundsystem and Latroit took home the honors.
Kraftwerk’s 3-D The Catalogue was awarded best dance/electronic album over Bonobo’s Migration, Mura Masa’s self-titled debut, Odesza A Moment Apart and Sylvan Esso What Now. It is Kraftwerk’s first ever win, coming 12 years after their only other nomination for Minimum-Maximum.
LCD Soundsystem won the best dance/electronic recording with their song Tonite. They beat out Bonobo & Innov Gnawa "Bambro Koyo Ganda,” Odesza’s “Line Of Sight,” Gorillaz & D.R.A.M. “Andromeda” and Camelphat & Elderbrook “Cola.”
Latroit won the best remixed recording with his remix of Depeche Mode “You Move.” See the full list of winners here.
