British dance music royalty, The Chemical Brothers, took home two gongs at the 62nd Annual Grammy Awards last night in the Los Angels Staples Centre.

Tom Rowlands and Ed Simons took away the two most prestigious awards in the electronic music field - winning Best Dance / Electronic Album and Best Dance Recording for their 9th studio album No Geography and lead single "Got to Keep on" respectively.

No strangers to the biggest awards in music, The Chemical Brothers were first nominated 23 years ago - back when the GRAMMY's didn't even have an electronic music category!



They won their first golden gramophone in 1997 for "Block Rockin' Beats" which was nominated in the Best Rock Instrumental category. On the night they were announced as winners, the duo were drinking at a bar across the street from the ceremony!

Since then, they've won another four awards. Single "Galvanize" won in 2005, album Push the Button in 2007 and last nights two make for five total awards.

Congratulations to Tom and Ed, two of electronic music's most vital producers.
