It was only a few months ago when ReverbNation CONNECT artist CFCF found out he had been nominated for a Grammy--news he did not expect and was completely startled by. His shock was completely understandable, because since 1998 the Best Remixed category has consistently aligned with popular dance music-- on the flip-side CFCF composes atmospheric electronic music that's distinctive and avoids description. His last two records: Radiance and Submission and The Coulours of Life, gained the attention of NPR, Pitchfork, and The Fader.

CFCF is up for Best Remixed Recording, for his version of Max Richter's violin composition “Berlin by Overnight,” performed by Daniel Hope. In the most recent piece on Mike Silver of CFCF, The New York Times interview him and cover his career leading up to his Grammy nomination, the history of dance culture and what the Best Remixed category entails, and how remixing "Berlin by Overnight" posed some unusual challenges for CFCF.

Head to The New York Times to learn more on Mike Silver of CFCF and tune into The Grammy's February 15 at 8pm (pst).
