After becoming one of the most exciting artists in the industry following his incredible Boiler Room set in 2022, Fred again.. reached new heights the following year. Now his incredible work has paid off the Brit wins two GRAMMYs. Skrillex can also secure one of the coveted trophies in this context.
Before the transition to 2023, Fred again.. was the focus of the electronic music world. His long-awaited third album was released in September 2022 and benefited from the huge anticipation created by his now iconic Boiler Room set. The release of “Rumble” in the first week of January almost pushed the internet to its limits. However, Fred again.. continued to surprise his fans by sharing the stage with his friends Skrillex and Four Tet at Madison Square Garden as well as a headline set in the California desert at Coachella. Now it seems that not only are fans supporting Fred again.. but the music industry has also confirmed his place at the 2024 GRAMMY Awards.
As the celebrations began in Los Angeles, the awards in the Pop and Dance/Electronic categories were awarded early. While it was unsurprising that Fred again.. received his first award for his work on “Rumble” alongside Skrillex and Flowdan in the Best Dance/Electronic Recording category, his influence and talent was particularly recognized when the Award for Best Dance/Electronic Music Album was announced. In a competition against greats like Skrillex, Kx5, James Blake and The Chemical Brothers, Fred again.. prevailed and took home the coveted prize for his album Actual Life 3 (January 1 – September 9 2022), released in 2022.
It is an immense honor and a well-deserved victory following the incredible trajectory of Fred again..’s career in recent years. Congrats to the producer and revisit the incredible album below.
David Guetta leaves empty-handed
David Guetta, on the other hand, was unable to win another GRAMMY after 2010 and 2011. The current DJ Mag number one was nominated twice in the “Best Pop Dance Recording” category with “Baby Don’t Hurt Me” and “One In A Million,” but Kylie Minogue’s “Padam Padam” took home the award here.
Taylor Swift is also worth mentioning because the artist made GRAMMY history: her album Midnights was named Best Pop Album and Album of the Year. This makes her the first person to win Album of the Year at the GRAMMYs four times. She overtook musicians like Frank Sinatra and Stevie Wonder.
But it wasn’t just Taylor Swift’s night, it was women’s night. In the best album category alone, seven of eight nominees were women. The artists SZA and Victoria Monét each received three GRAMMYs, Miley Cyrus and Billie Eilish each received two gold gramophones.
Other award winners included Jay Z, who received an honorary award, Boygenius, Metallica, Paramore, and Killer Mike. You can find all the winners here.
