2024 DANCE RECORDING OF THE YEAR | Dom Dolla & Nelly Furtado | | The JUNO Awards

Dom Dalla

Australia’s Dom Dolla is one of the most exciting producers in electronic music. Dom discovered dance music when his mother handed him a copy of Basement Jaxx’s 2001 album “Rooty,” and he was hooked at that moment. In 2015 Dom quit his day job to pursue music and production, releasing a string of critically acclaimed club hits, including “Define,” “You,” and “Be Randy” (which was nominated for ARIA Best Dance Release). His breakout year followed with the release of “Take It,” “San Frandisco” (ARIABest Dance Release winner), “Pump The Breaks,” and “Moving Blind.” 2022, Dolla released “Strangers” ft. Mansionair and the hit “Miracle Maker” ft. Clementine Douglas. 2023 has been his biggest year yet, with the release of “Rhyme Dust” ft. MK (one of the most celebrated tracks of 2023), and “Eat Your Man” ft. Grammy Award-winning Nelly Furtado. Dom’s catalogue is fast approaching 1 billion streams, with three Platinum-Certified singles. In 2023, Dom Dolla was nominated for six ARIA awards, including Best Solo Artist and Song of the Year. His distinct sound has caught the attention of the biggest names in music, and he’s just getting started.

Nelly Furtado

Legendary singer, songwriter and pop superstar, Nelly Furtado will host the awards for the second time since her 2007 debut in Saskatoon.

Notably, her venture into the Spanish language music scene with “Mi Plan” skyrocketed to the top spot on the US Latin Billboard chart, earning her a Latin Grammy for Best Female Pop Vocal. With new music released this year, Furtado continues to captivate millions of listeners around the world who can’t wait to hear more.
