Former student nominated for music’s highest award

← Back to News Stories

10th April 2018

A former student of The City of Liverpool College has been recognised as a major talent with a nomination for the music industry’s top award.

Mike Di Scala, who studied HND Music Technology at the College’s Arts Centre, has been nominated for a GRAMMY Award in the Best Dance Recording category with his chart-topping single ‘Cola’.

Mike is one half of hit duo CamelPhat & Elderbrook and has made his name in the industry as a prolific producer. He was also front man with dance group Ultrabeat, having his first hit single, Pretty Green Eyes, reach number 2 in the UK singles chart and number 1 in the UK dance chart back in August 2003, shortly after graduating from his higher level course at the College.

In the world of talented musicians and industry creatives, his first GRAMMY nomination is recognised as an unforgettable career high as well as deserved recognition by the artist’s peers.

Since its introduction at the 40th GRAMMY Awards – the music industry’s equivalent to the Oscars – the Best Dance Recording category has recognised tracks by artists as varied as Janet Jackson, Daft Punk, Lady Gaga, Skrillex and The Chemical Brothers.

This year’s 60th GRAMMY Awards ceremony takes place on 29 January 2018 in New York’s famous Madison Square Garden. Organisers of the event decided to mark its milestone with a move to the new location, in recognition of New York’s title as the music capital of the world.
