Electronic Music Alliance (EMA), an union of dance music fans, artists, and industry idealists, has been one of those organisations that has played an vital role in carrying out issues important to electronic dance music community such as health, safety, greening.
In an attempt to inspire a beautiful 2016 while reflecting on the events that have transpired in the past year, Janine Jordan, founder of Electronic Music Alliance, compiled all of the extraordinary work they were able to accomplish during the course of 2015 with the help of supporting electronic music artists and social good company allies in the latest edition of Sound of Change.
The activities conducted by Electronic Music Alliance with the support of the electronic dance music community has made several changes and more importantly, it has transcended the scene of charity and philanthropy to a different dimension altogether.
Here are 7 ways in which the programs such as Massive Action community service weekends and Play It FWD, implemented by Electronic Music Alliance along with the official partners including Cadence+Cause and Electric Family, have played an integral role in Sound of Change.
