Top Dance/Electronic Music Artist Nominees for Billboard Music Awards 2015

Posted at April 13th, 2015 | by Karan Acharya | in Indie

Billboard, an American music magazine honours musicians year after year by awarding the top artists of various genres with the prestigious Billboard Music Award. We have heard countless songs that have topped the music charts in the past year but sadly it’s only a few artists who get nominated and further still just one truly deserving artists who bags the top honour.
 
So with Billboard having announced their nominees for the TOP DANCE/ELECTRONIC ARTIST category, Grapevine looks back into just what made these artists stand apart from the rest.
 
1) Avicii
 

 
After an unfortunate sabbatical from the festival stage due to health concerns, Avicii was back with a bang some massive albums like True and The Days/Nights EP. He is also set to release his two promising projects “Stories” and “City Lights”, which is said to include a collaboration track with Coldplay’s Chris Martin. It is great to see Avicii back in action.
 
2) Clean Bandit
 

 
Clean Bandit is a British electronic group consisting of Jack Patterson, Luke Patterson, Grace Chatto, and Neil Amin-Smith. They are best known for their Grammy award winning single “Rather Be” which has a blend of classical music along with a dance music beat.
 
3) Disclosure

The men behind Disclosure, Guy and Howard Lawrence have risen to fame in the past year or so after producing some tracks that truly reflect their creativity. Their recent rework of “F For You” with Mary J. Blige got nominated at the Grammys as well as earned them a spot at the Billboard top 200 .  The Lawrence Brothers are quite definitely a promising duo and have fans craving for bigger and better things to come.

 

4) Calvin Harris
 
Calvin-Harris
 
He is the World’s Richest DJ for a reason. This multifaceted artist has been topping charts since 2009 and his music never seems to disappoint. Calvin Harris receives a nomination following the release of his newest album Motion late last year.
 
5) Lindsey Stirling
 

 
Lindsey Stirling is yet another artist brimming with talent. She is a violinist who performs a variety of music styles, from classical to pop and hip-hop to electronic dance music. She truly lived by her belief on how live instrumentation is going to be the next big thing in electronic music and went on to release her album “Shatter Me” that got her the 2nd spot in the Billboard 200.
