Dance acts were overlooked at the Brit Awards last night (Wednesday 19th February), with only pop-junglists Rudimental winning anything amongst UK dance acts. The east London collective, signed to Black Butter Records, walked away with the gong for Best Single for their track 'Waiting All Night' — but Disclosure, nominated in four categories, left empty handed.
Dance music has seldom fared very well at the Brits, the UK music industry's annual awards show. Indeed, the Brits did away with the Best British Dance Act category a few years ago, but this year it appears that dance music is back to bite the mainstream music industry on the backside.
The award-winning Exit Festival in Serbia has just announced its first set of names to commemorate 15 years of dance acts at the event.
Disclosure, Paul Woolford, Carl Craig, Green Velvet, Dusky and Jackmaster have just been revealed as performing at Exit, joining Rudimental, Skrillex and Dub FX who had already been announced.
Voting has just opened for the IDMAs – the 29th International Dance Music Awards. Dance music fans have until March 5th to register votes for their favourites in all 57 categories, if you so wish.
TCTS, aka Sam O'Neill, is the latest signing to Greco-Roman, the label that first brought us Disclosure and TEED as well as those Hot Chip cats. TCTS is the initials of the band Sam used to play in when he was a teenager, and he started DJing out using that name. “I intended to change it at some point, and it just kind of stuck,” TCTS tells DJ Mag.
