After we announced the nominees a few weeks back, the internet has been abuzz with excitement about the 2015 Stowaways. Who will win these coveted non-existent awards?
- Röyksopp & Robyn – Monument
This was of course already revealed a few weeks back with a full countdown. Despite two exceptional back catalogues to draw upon, this is the first Best Track award for either artist.
- William Orbit – Strange Cargo 5
He has a few past wins under his belt for Best Artist and Best Producer but this is his first Best Album. The full list of nominees was covered in the previous post above.
Best Reissue / Compilation
- David Bowie – Nothing Has Changed
Grabbing his first ever Stowaway award, after only ever having been nominated previously. The full list of nominees was covered in the previous post above.
- Erlend Øye – Garota
It’s been quiet for Erlend since his 2004 Best International Artist win, but 2015 sees him grab the Best Video.
- Diamond Version
The full list of nominees was covered in the previous post above.
- William Orbit
Orbit won this award in 2001 and 2011, so now takes home his third Stowaway for Best Artist. The full list of nominees was covered in the previous post above.
Best Live Act
- Massive Attack
Beating off stiff competition with their exceptional tour. The full list of nominees was covered in the previous post above.
- Röyksopp & Robyn “Do It Again” (Moby Remix)
Röyksopp won this award previously way back in 2003 with the Someone Else’s remix of Remind Me.
Best Dance Act / Remixer
- Shit Robot
With only one previous nomination, Shit Robot makes his Stowaways debut.
Well-deserved winners of the 2015 Stowaway Outstanding Contribution award, Röyksopp‘s final album (in that format) and penultimate album (not quite in that format) both rode high on the Chart for stowaways for months on end last year.
