Posted at January 15th, 2016 | by Sidhantha Jain | in

The 58th Annual Grammy Awards ceremony is scheduled for February 15, 2016 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California. The paramount function will be handing out gold to artists for their extraordinary contribution towards the music industry from October 1, 2014 to September 30, 2015.

For the 2016 edition of the Grammy’s, Above & Beyond, The Chemical Brothers, Flying Lotus, Galantis, Jack U, Caribou, Disclosure along with Jamie xx are representing the dance music roster across multiple categories. Before this year’s show is aired, let’s take a look at all those EDM artists who have previously taken home “the” Gramophone!

Georgio Moroder

Credited as the master of synth disco and electronic music, Giorgio was the first ever recipient of the Best Dance Recording award in 1998 for his track ‘Carry On’ featuring Donna Summer. In 1984 ‘Flashdance’ earned him the award for Best Album of Original Score Written for a Motion Picture or Television Special, Best Instrumental Composition for the track ‘Love Theme from Flashdance’ and 2014’s Grammys saw him share the stage with Daft Punk for Album of the Year.

David Guetta

Arguably one of the most important souls in the dance music circuit, David Guetta has taken home two Grammy awards up until now.
In 2010 he got the Best Remixed Recording, Non-Classical for ‘When Love Takes Over’ featuring Kelly Rowland and the same award in 2011 for the remix of Madonna’s ‘Revolver’ with Afrojack.

Stuart Price

Also known as Jacque Lu Cont, the British record producer has collected a Grammy for Best Remixed Recording, Non-Classical twice! The initial one in 2005 for the remix of ‘It’s My Life’ by No Doubt and the other in 2007 for his remix of Coldplay’s ‘Talk.’

Basement Jaxx

Felix Buxton and Simon Ratcliffe have been producing electronic music under the common alias of Basement Jaxx since 1990s and have won the inaugural Grammy for Best Dance/Electronica Album at the 47th edition of Grammys for their extremely successful album ‘Kish Kash!’

Frankie Knuckles

The Grammy Award for Best Remixed Recording, Non-Classical was first presented at the 40th Grammy Awards in 1998 to Frankie Knuckles who is officially called “The Godfather of House Music.”

Deep Dish

In 2002, Deep Dish’s remix for Dido’s super hit track ‘Thank You’ reaped a Grammy for Best Remixed Recording, Non-Classical category.

Benny Benassi

Best known for ‘Satisfaction,’ Benny Benassi earned his way to the Grammy nominations for the Best Remixed Recording at the 50th Grammy Awards and ended up winning it with his remix of Public Enemy’s ‘Bring the Noise.’

Roger Sanchez

The four time DJ Awards’ “Best House DJ,” Roger Sanchez also claimed his Grammy under the classification of Best Remixed Recording, Non-Classical in 2003 for his remix of ‘Hella Good’ by No Doubt!

The remix of MGMT’s song ‘Electric Feel’ harvested them the Grammy for Best Remixed Recording, Non-Classical in 2009.

Former Trio consisting of Steve Smith, Paul Harris and Ben Harris, Dirty Vegas; gained a Grammy in 2003 under Best Dance Recording for ‘Days Go By,’ which featured in a Mitsubishi Eclipse television commercial and later in Grand Theft Auto V!

Tiesto

After being nominated in 2008 for Best Electronic/Dance Album at Grammy Awards for ‘Elements of Life,’ Tiesto finally won the Grammy Award for Best Remixed Recording, Non-Classical for his birthday treatment remix version of John Legend’s hit ‘All Of Me‘ at the 57th Annual Grammy Awards in 2014!

Cedric Gervais

French DJ and Producer, Cedric Gervais, rose to fame when he remixed Lana Del Ray’s colossal track ‘Summertime Sadness’ for which he won a Grammy in 2014 under the category of Best Remixed Recording, Non-Classical!

Zedd

Anton Zaslavski aka Zedd is best recognized for hits like ‘Spectrum’, ‘Stay the Night’, ‘I Want You to Know’ but ‘Clarity’ featuring Foxes is his biggest track ever, which apparently brought him a Grammy Award in 2014 for Best Dance Recording!

Aphex Twin

Richard David James familiar to the world by his stage name Aphex Twin won the Grammy Award for Best Dance/Electronic Album for his album ‘Syro.’ It was also nominated for IMPALA’s European Independent Album of the Year Award as well as the Mercury Prize!

Clean Bandit

In January 2014, Clean Bandit reached on the top of UK Singles Chart with ‘Rather Be’ featuring Jess Glynne, and secured the Best Dance Recording in 2015 for the same at the 57th anniversary of Grammy’s.

The Chemical Brothers

Tom Rowlands and Ed Simons collectively known as The Chemical Brothers have gained three Grammy Awards, out which in 2006 they scored two accolades for:
• Best Dance/Electronica Album – Push the Button
• Best Dance Recording – Galvanize featuring Q-Tip
In 2008, they returned to win the Best Dance/Electronica Album with ‘We Are The Night.’
This time they’re aiming for the Best Dance Recording with ‘Go’ and Best Dance/Electronic Album with ‘Born in the Echoes!’

Daft Punk

The robotic musicians have also acquired three Grammy Awards for their exceptional service all these years. In 2009, they scored two for:
• Best Dance/Electronica Album – Alive 2007
• Best Dance Recording – Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger
And in 2014 they gained the title of Best Dance/Electronica Album for ‘Random Access Memories.’

Skrillex

Probably this was the first time when the dubstep-god actually broke the shackles of underground music scene and reached out to the masses! Sonny till now has won six Grammy Awards.
In 2012 he received his first three trophies for:
• Best Dance Recording – Scary Monsters & Nice Sprites
• Best Dance/Electronica Album – Scary Monsters & Nice Sprites
• Best Remixed Recording, Non-Classical – Benny Benassi – Cinema (Skrillex Remix)
In 2013, Skrill repeated the history when he scored three more Grammies for:
• Best Dance Recording ¬- Bangarang
• Best Dance/Electronica Album – Bangarang
• Best Remixed Recording, Non-Classical – Nero ‘Promises’ (Skrillex And Nero Remix)
Even though he’s not nominated this year for any solo productions but we hope ‘Where Are Ü Now’ wins the award for Best Dance Recording and ‘Skrillex and Diplo Present Jack Ü’ for Best Dance/Electronic Album!
