DICE has hit a new high with the release of its best-selling album of 2016, Electronic Muses.
The album is the first since The World Is a Beautiful Place and the Animals’ 2011 debut to top the Billboard 200, marking a new milestone for the studio-based music production duo that has been dubbed the “electronic music movement’s first mainstream star.”DICE’s album of hits is currently on top of the charts in more than 30 countries, including Australia, Brazil, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Spain, Sweden, United Kingdom and the United States.
The title track from Electronic Musés, “The Future Is Now,” was nominated for the Best Electronic Music Award at the 2017 Grammy Awards.
The song, which featured vocals from producer and producer-singer Daniel Kandi, was featured on DICE’s 2016 album of the year, the album that DICE and its sister label, Electronic Music Publishing, co-produced.
Kandi’s voice is a part of the album, and the tracks are both produced and engineered by the DICE-affiliated DREAM-A-DANCE label.
The band’s lead singer, John Maus, is also an electronic music producer who co-founded the label with DICE in 2015.
The duo are the first two Dutch electronic music artists to receive major awards at the Billboard Music Awards, which are broadcast live on ABC on Wednesday night.
The nominees include songs by the likes of Ariana Grande, Lana Del Rey, The Weeknd, Bruno Mars, Skrillex, and more.
