Held on May 15, 2022 in Toronto, Ontario, the Juno Awards returned this year to once again celebrate the best musicians Canada has to offer, as well as their remarkable commercial and creative achievements. For the first time in three years, the annual event was an in-person ceremony, with singer and songwriter Charlotte Cardin winning the most awards, with four wins on six nominations.

This year also marked the introduction of a new category at the JUNOS–Underground Dance single of the Year–with the purpose of shining the spotlight on the dance music artists who are crafting the sounds of tomorrow and contributing to Canada’s buzzing underground scene. mau5trap and Thrive Music signee HNTR took home the award for Underground Dance Single of the Year for his immersive “Shadows in the Dark,” which includes a stunning vocal performance from Elliot Moss. Other nominees in the Underground Dance Single of the Year included Blond:ish, Carlo Lio, Jayda G, and Korea Town Acid.

Dance Recording of the Year and Electronic Album of the Year both featured an impressive list of nominees this year as well. Pioneering producer Kaytranada took home the award for Dance Recording of the Year with his single “Caution,” while being nominated against Ceréna’s “see,” DVBBS’ “Sleep,” Karl Wolf’s “Get Away (Radio Edit)” and REZZ and deadmau5’s “Hypnocurrency.”
