NYC-based Norwegian producer duo Stargate, i.e Tor Erik Hermansen and Mikkel S. Eriksen receive two Grammy nominations this year, down from six last year. Nevertheless, the two highly successful producers can wrap up a productive and profitable year that has bolstered Stargate’s position as one of the hottest production teams around.
This year sees the two nominated in the category ‘album of the year’ for their production work on Ne-Yo’s ‘Year of the Gentlemen’.
Stargate is also nominated together with Ne-Yo in the category ‘Best R&B track’. The songs in question are Ne-Yo’s own hit Miss Independent and the track Spotlight which the duo wrote and produced for Jennifer Hudson.
With two nominations then, for the world’s most important music awards, it is very likely indeed that the Norwegian producers extraordinary will collect some material proof or their outstanding year in Music.
The happening takes place on February 8th.
