The new electronic music category was formed in conjunction with the newly-formed Black Electronic Music Association, or Club BEMA, to make the awards come to be.

Club BEMA consists of BBC Radio 1’s Jaguar, foundation.fm’s Heléna Star, Black Artist Data Base’s NIKS and artist manager Hannah Shogbola.

The collective has used its network to curate the voting committee from within the industry to select nominees for the category.

As well as Eliza Rose, nominees for this new category are Anz, FKA Twigs, Jax Jones, Nia Archives and SHERELLE.
