Many would dismiss our weekly celebration of music as simply an “EDM” night, and they wouldn’t be wrong. Much of the music now is “electronic” (the first synthesizer was created in 1876), “dance” is what we do to music (see: moshing, breakdancing, the waltz) and music, is, well, music.
But after fourteen years of promoting new music every week, it was exciting to see the announcements of the 2016 GRAMMY nominees go to some familiar faces.

Of course, a lion’s share of the Make It New-related GRAMMY-nominations come from the dance/electronic category (though we again emphasize we do not know exactly what that means anymore).
Do you like Paul McCartney? We prefer John ourselves (and, well, George … and maybe Ringo tbqh) but hey, Make It New guest Timo Maas has been nominated for a remix he did of Sir Paul!
Joe Goddard of Hot Chip was also nominated for a GRAMMY for his extended remix of the Chemical Brothers. He played Make It New (as one half of the Two Bears) after Hot Chip played the House of Blues last year. Ask us the story of how we might have inadvertently introduced Hot Chip to techno back in the day.
But wait! You say, that is only 7… Well…
