Warm Tones: The 2012 4th Quarter - Dance

We continue with the announcement, genre by genre, of those albums which made the cut for the initial pool of the Platinum Vinyl Awards in the 4th Quarter, which is July 1-September 30. The full eligibility year for each PVA is October 1-September 30.

Today we move on to the Dance genre, which includes techno, synthpop, ambient, house, progressive, trance and industrial. Basically everything that revolves around a synthesizer. This was a very good category this quarter, with eleven nominees. Since I hope to narrow the choices in each genre down to seven finalists, you see this means I have work to do. Without further ado, the initial dance pool entrants for the Fourth Quarter are:
  • Abandoned Pools - Sublime Currency
  • Anchor and Braille - The Quiet Life
  • An Epic No Less - Echo of Love
  • Capital Kings - I Feel So Alive
  • Group 1 Crew - Fearless
  • Andy Hunter - Glow
  • Mandisa - Get Movin
  • Owl City - The Midsummer Station
  • Satellites and Sirens - The Covers
  • Beckah Shae - Rest
  • White Collar Sideshow - The WitcHunt
Like I said, this quarter alone furnished enough entries and more, and there are three other quarters of entries. A lot of work to do on this one. Our next genre, however, is Alternative, and that is the king of the 4th Quarter, with a whopping seventeen possible entries. This genre will cause quite a lot of sour grapes. Until next time, I am Awaiting Your Reply.
