The Grammy Award for Best Remixed Recording, Non-Classical is an honour presented to producers for quality remixed recordings at the Grammy Awards, a ceremony that was established in 1958 and originally called the Gramophone Awards. [2] Honors in several categories are presented at the ceremony annually by the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences of the United States to "honor artistic achievement, technical proficiency and overall excellence in the recording industry, without regard to album sales or chart position". [4]

The award was first presented as the Grammy Award for Remixer of the Year, Non-Classical at the 40th Grammy Awards in 1998 to Frankie Knuckles. While the award was under this name, it was presented without specifying a work; when it shifted to its current name in 2002 works were named. According to the category description guide for the 52nd Grammy Awards, the award is presented "to recognise an individual(s) who takes previously recorded material and adds or alters it in such a way as to create a new and unique performance". [5] The prize is given to the remixer(s), not the original artist(s). [5]

French disc jockey David Guetta, British producer Jacques Lu Cont, and Skrillex have each won the award twice. Three-time nominees are Steve "Silk" Hurley and Masters at Work, although neither artist has won the award. American producer Maurice Joshua was put forward in 2001 and 2003, and won in 2004 for Maurice's Soul Mix of " Crazy in Love ". Frankie Knuckles, David Morales, Roger Sanchez, Hex Hector and Deep Dish have each been nominated for the award twice and have won it once.
