All hail the coming wave of Liechtenstein techno. The best dance recording category is stocked with the usual EDM-crossover suspects -- Avicii, Calvin Harris, Skrillex and Swedish House Mafia. But Al Walser, a native of the tiny European nation with barely a thousand Facebook likes to his name, somehow made it on the list for his single "I Can't Live Without You." How'd he do it? No one knows yet (he claims to be a Grammy voting member though), but we will be the first to champion the new genre of "Liechten-step" if he wins.
