Electronic Music Awards & Foundation Nominees: Calvin Harris, Diplo, Kygo Announced
The Electronic Music Awards & Foundation show has announced the nominees for its inaugural edition this year. The nominees for the first ever televised award show for electronic music vary across seven different categories ranging from Single of the Year, Album of the Year, Best New Artist and DJ of the Year. Among those nominated are Ultra Music Festival, Kygo, Calvin Harris, Carl Cox, Diplo and Fabric.
Jamie xx's In Colour and Disclosure's Caracal will have a chance to redeem themselves after losing out at the Grammys to Skrillex and Diplo's joint album, while the Single of the Year could go to tracks from Major Lazer, Galantis, The Chainsmokers, Kygo or Calvin Harris.
The Best New Artist category has a few headscratchers with DJ Snake and Kygo joining other newer acts like KSHMR, Jauz and Bob Moses.
"The nominees reflect dance music trends on a global level bringing together DJs, producers, clubs and brands that represent a wide range of genres," says Executive Producer from TV4 Entertainment, Paul Duddridge.
See the full list of nominees below. The award show will air April 23 at 9 p.m. PST on FOX.
