    The dance music industry, fans and artists alike, have had mixed emotions after Beyoncé took home the Grammys for both Dance/Electronic Recording and Dance/Electronic music Album last weekend.

    One of the artists nominated for both categories, Diplo, has now shared his reflection on the moment!

    Sharing in what starts as an ode to the dance music community, his social media post which was to honor the dance music community started with him sharing “Thank you for being my purpose in this life and shaping my career .. and much love to all the wonderful people that worked on my album 🧡.. Grammy night was great night for all of us.”

    He went on to say, “Dance music has and will be the most Inclusive music of our generation .. I have been in the industry for over 20 years releasing club music ..Our community has always been gay / straight, but icy , poor.. white black brown purple .. it’s the music that had united the world during my lifetime and i’m glad to just be one part of it.”

    He went further to take a moment to celebrate the fact that this was the first year when the dance/ electronic music category was televised saying, “Tonight was the first time the dance / electronic category was televised and it was rightfully so.. between me, rufus beyoncé, odesza bonobo… was one of the strongest years for electronic music.”

    While the industry took every opportunity to share a jab at Beyoncé, Diplo shared how he thought her album (Renaissance) was ‘legendary’ and that “what’s important to understand was that her intention was 100%. she did the work, found the real producers and she made classics .. so she deserves her flowers.”

    He rounded up the post where he shared multiple video clips saying, “but the best part was my friends and the other artists in the genre still out raving until sunrise somewhere in La : that’s what’s the music is really about.”
