The Grammy Award for Best Dance/Electronic Album is an award presented at the Grammy Awards, a ceremony that was established in 1958 to recording artists for quality albums in the dance music and electronica genres.[1] Honors in several categories are presented at the ceremony annually by the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences of the United States to "honor artistic achievement, technical proficiency and overall excellence in the recording industry, without regard to album sales or chart position".[2]

History

This award was first presented in 2005 to Basement Jaxx for the album Kish Kash.

  • From 2005 to 2011 the award was known as Best Electronic/Dance Album
  • From 2012 to 2014 the award was known as Best Dance/Electronica Album
  • From 2015 the award has been known as Best Dance/Electronic Album

In June 2014, NARAS announced a small change in the naming of the category, from Dance/Electronica to Dance/Electronic. It was agreed that "the title for this genre has evolved, and updating it more accurately represents the industry nomenclature of today.", according to the Grammy committee.[3]

According to the category description guide, the award is presented "for albums containing at least 51% playing time of new vocal or instrumental electronica/dance recordings".[4] It is intended for "groove-oriented recordings with electronic-based instrumentation". Compilation or remixed recording albums are not eligible for this category.

Skrillex received the award three times, while Daft Punk and The Chemical Brothers each received it twice. The Chemical Brothers hold the record for most nominations with five. Deadmau5 and Robyn hold the record for most nominations without a win with, three.
