Calvin Harris, Jamie xx, Aphex Twin & more score BRIT Awards nominations

While American awards show staples like the Grammys and American Music Awards still vaguely acknowledge dance music’s influence in pop culture, the BRIT Awards recently announced their list of 2016 nominees proving dance music’s dominance within the UK scene.

Calvin Harris and Disciples’ smash hit “How Deep Is Your Love” scored two nominations for British Artist Video and British Single; meanwhile, Jamie xx, Calvin Harris and Aphex Twin are among the acts contending for British Male Solo Artist. Jamie xx also landed a British Album of the Year nomination for In Colour, while Major Lazer is up against Tame Impala, Alabama Shakes, U2 and Eagles of Death Metal for International Group.

The full list of BRIT Awards is available here. The show will take place on February 24 at London’s O2 arena.
