GrammyNomination

Pretty Lights is a Grammy nominee for Best Dance/Electronica Album for A Color Map Of The Sun.

I think the most exciting aspect of my Grammy nomination is that there’s some sort of paradigm shift happening where electronic music has become a bigger genre of music that doesn’t necessarily describe anything more specific than “music made with a computer,” and the category of “best electronic album” is representing the breadth of the genre well. Kaskade is more a traditional idea of electronic music, while Disclosure has the newer singer-songwriter appeal, and Daft Punk of course is a classic powerhouse act, and then there’s me who is kind of far left old soul and funk beats.
