The year was 2002, and our founder Denice Dal Braccio was sitting in her room in New Jersey looking for an outlet to release the pain she felt after losing her mom to non-smokers lung cancer. She tried watching tv, but that didn’t help. She tried going shopping, but that didn’t work either. Frustrated, she went home just as broken and depressed as before.
Laying in bed Denice put on her headphones and started listening to her favorite CD singing the lyrics, connecting to the words, melodies, and sounds which seemed to now have a different and deeper effect on her. She really felt and connected with the music and it helped ease the pain she was suffering. From that day on she knew she had found the transformational piece in her life. Music could save, change, and transform lives and she wanted to help others who were going through tough times in their lives. She searched for the easiest way to spread the message of music. By 2013 she knew anything was possible so she decided to quit her day job and start a worldwide magazine …and EDM World Magazine was born!
The original idea was to create the best source for everything in the world of electronic dance music where people could easily turn towards to escape their daily pains and put their mind at ease with music. Over the past year, the brand and aspirations have grown. Since our launch in 2013, we’ve become the number one digital magazine app in the world of the electronic dance music industry which provides the best platform for community members to connect, grow, and strengthen our cultural movement. We seek to spread the core values of our community known as PLUR: Peace, Love, Unity, and Respect.
