When all the songs are saying the same thing, true artists stand out from the crowd, and the 2018 class of Grammy-nominated artists for best dance recording each bring a unique voice and attitude to the stage. It makes the pickings tough, so we ask you: Who should win?

There's LCD Soundsystem and its ode to uncomfortable honesty "Tonite," a rockin' disco tune that builds big and explodes like a generation on fire. It may not promise that you'll never get older, but it proves that you don't have to be forever-youthful to crack the Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart.

Gorillaz and DRAM also brought the realness for their collaborative single "Andromeda." From the apocalyptic dance album Humanz, "Andromeda" hitched the road to glory on both the Hot Rock Songs and Hot Dance/Electronic Songs charts at No. 9 and 16, respectively.

ODESZA's "Line of Sight" brought a winning formula with Mansionair and WYNNE. It served as the band's first original single in three years and heralded the coming of the band's most acclaimed work to date.

The trend of celebrating live electronic performance continues with the nomination of Bonobo's "Bambro Koyo Ganda" feat. Innov Gnawa. Its swirling atmosphere perfectly captures Bonobo's brilliance in merging the organic with the synthetic to conjure mystical moods to transform a dance floor into an ethereal paradise.

If the club world feels a little left out, it finds a hero in upstarts Camelphat & Elderbrook, whose collab "Cola" topped Shazam's list of most-tracked tune in Ibiza this summer and hit the Billboard chart for Dance Club Songs. It continues to build steam as it finds crossover success on dance radio. Is it enough for a golden gramophone?

Ultimately, the Recording Academy makes the call, but who is your favorite?
