Solo star Plan B and electric guitar band Biffy Clyro are amongst the nominees for the Single of the Year prize from the Music Producers Guild (MPG) Awards.

Biffy's track God and Satan is in the running to win the prize of 2010's best song, while She Said from Plan B will also be competing.

The other songs in the category are Mumford and Sons' The Cave and Paloma Faith's Do You Want The Truth or Something Beautiful?

Meanwhile, the prize for Producer of the Year is to be fought over by Markus Dravs, Mike Pela, Ethan Johns and John Leckie.

MPG has not yet announced who is nominated for the Album of the Year as a second round of voting is taking place before the final shortlist is announced.

Steve Levine, chairman of MPG, said: "Nomination numbers were significantly up on last year and we are delighted with the response."

The awards ceremony will take place in London on February 9th 2011.

Last time, MPG honoured Paul Epworth with the Best Producer prize for his work with Florence and the Machine.

Single of the year went to Muse for Uprising, while Dizzee Rascal took the Best Album prize.
