    Coldplay's 'Talk' A Grammy Winner For Lu Cont

    talkblackremixes1.jpgColdplay's 'Talk' was a winner last night at the Grammys as Lu Cont's Thin White Duke Mix won the Best Remix category.


    The Best Remix category has been around since 2002, with previous winners including Jacques Lu Cont (for No Doubt’s ‘In My Life’) and Roger Sanchez (for No Doubt’s ‘Hella Good’).



    Best Remix


    Mary J. Blige – Be Without You (Moto Blanco Vocal Mix)

    Tiefschwarz & Tracey Thorn – Damage (Buick Project Remix)

    Beyoncé – Deja Vu (Freemasons Club Mix - No Rap)

    Coldplay – Talk (Thin White Duke Mix)

    Bob Sinclar – World Hold On (E-Smoove Remix)


    The Grammy Awards were held on February 11, 2007 at the Staples Center, Los Angeles.

    The Grammys have three categories related to dance music. Best Dance Recording was first awarded in 1998, though early winners seemed a bit wobbly with Cher (‘Believe’) and the Baha Men (‘Who Let the Dogs Out?’) marching up to the stage to collect their trophies. It wasn’t until 2003 when a separate dance category was created that the Grammy’s seemed more comfortable with the genre: in recent years Britney Spears (‘Toxic’) and The Chemical Brothers (‘Galvanize’) have gone home with the gramophone.


    The Best Electronic/Dance Album category is only a couple of years old, with previous winners being The Chemical Brothers for 'Push The Button' and Basement Jaxx for 'Kish Kash'. Among the contenders this year, perhaps the smart money is on Madonna’s ‘Confessions on a Dance Floor’ to take the trophy – it narrowly missed the cutoff date last year, causing a major label kerfuffle, and it’s marriage of dance cred and pop appeal looks like a likely Grammy contender.
