    Can’t see Disclosure losing Album. They got the acclaim and one of the most prominent acts in EDM. They would have won for Settle if Daft Punk didn’t release an album that year.

    I think last year’s win for Aphex Twin signals an opening for a veteran act like Chemical Brothers to win

    I want Disclosure to win Best Dance Recording for “Omen”. I love this sound.

    I hope Disclosure are nominated and win for Caracal.

    Also, rooting for Rudimental’s We the Generation, which was released last week.

    An extremely excellent yet underrated electronic/house album is Gorgon City’s Sirens, which was released October 2014.

    Considering the large presence of house in last year’s nominees, I think you might be right on target with this one

    Best Dance Recording
    Lean On – Major Lazer, MO, DJ Snake
    Where Are U Now – Diplo, Skrillex & Justin Bieber

    I’m thinking Diplo’s Mad Decent label submits one of these songs (most likely Where Are U Now) in Pop Vocal by Duo or Group

    Look at last year’s nominees. I see a similar pattern this year 

    Best Dance/Electronic Album
    I’m predicting the shocker that Major Lazer doesn’t get in here, but Jack U does (6-time winner Skrillex & career-peak Diplo seem stronger.) Previous nominees Chemical Bros, Kaskade & Disclosure sound right. The bigger shock will be the stadium names who don’t make it (Calvin Harris, Zedd, Alesso, Steve Aoki, David Guetta)

    The Chemical Brothers – Born in Echos
    Disclosure – Caracal
    Galantis – Pharmacy
    Kaskade – Automatic
    Skrillex & Diplo – Skillex & Diplo present… Jack U 

    Best Dance Recording
    The voting bloc loves house music. I regret not predicting they’d nominate Zhu’s Faded, it fit right in with the nominations for Disclosure/Mary J Blige, Duke Dumont & Basement Jaxx. I think this year will be the same, underground house favorites over big room EDM pop hits. The exception will be the biggest hit (Lean On) has all the momentum (chart success, street cred, veteran act)

    Calvin Harris featuring Ellie Goulding – Outside
    Disclosure – Bang That
    Jauz – Feel The Volume 
    Major Lazer featuring MO & DJ Snake – Lean On
    Valentino Khan – Deep Down Low

    This category generally usually goes one of two ways: a remix that outshines the original, or a big name remixing a big hit. Without an obvious standout remix hit, I think the combination of big name (4-time nominee Kaskade) and big hit (Where Are U Hit) will give Kaskade his first win, much like Tiesto’s first win this year

    Best Remixed Recording

    Bleachers (Jack Antonoff) – Carly Rae Jepsen “I Really Like You (Bleachers remix)”
    Dillon Francis & Jauz (Dillon Francis & Sam Vogel) – Major Lazer “Lean On ft MO & DJ Snake (Dillon Francis & Jauz remix)”
    GTA (Julio Mejia and Matt Toth) – Rihanna “Bitch Better Have My Money (GTA remix)”
    Kaskade (Ryan Raddon) – Skrillex & Diplo “Where Are U Now ft Justin Bieber (Kaskade remix)”
    RL Grime (Henry Steinway) – The Weeknd “The Hills (RL Grime remix)”

    This is one of the better years of dance/house music in recent memory! So many worthy Grammy contenders with Disclosure, Diplo/Skrillex (Jack U), Major Lazer, Chemical Brothers, Kaskade, Zedd

    Plus some new acts like Years & Years and Gorgon City, and MNEK.

    Also, someone no one is mentioning is Jamie xx! One of the best albums of the year hands down.
