Who We Are: EDM Cares is a not for profit organization created to provide opportunities for the dance community to become more involved in public outreach and community services. Our organization is based out of Denver Colorado and is founded by Niki Zytion, an Army veteran with a deep love for EDM and a desire to give back to the community through charitable donations and volunteer services. His goal was to create an organization that would help overcome the unpopular opinion associated with the EDM scene, as well as provide the music industry an opportunity to give back to the communities where they live and work. Mr. Zytion has a long-standing relationship with the members of the electronic nightlife scene and wants to include professional organizations as part of his positive and communal team.
What We Do: EDM Cares’ focus is on empowering veterans and educating youth as well as providing humanitarian and charitable assistance. Our current outreach activities include: ⦁Collection of food, clothing, and toiletries/hygiene items to assist multiple local homeless shelters and the Sister Carmen Community Center. In its first year, the fall/winter drive brought in 1,246 items and in its 2nd year those numbers quadrupled to 4,999 item being redistributed to warm the homeless in Colorado. ⦁Hosting EDM Cares funded events with ticket sales going towards veterans support and community interaction. As a veteran himself, Mr. Zytion is passionate about helping soldiers who are injured in the line of duty. Vet related events will host an all-veteran DJ lineup and are always free to veterans. ⦁Annual blood drives in support of Bonfils Blood Center. ⦁Finally, we are in the planning stages of creating an event that will support Hugs you Wear, an organization that provides human hair wigs to children with Leukemia. This is only the beginning of what we hope to achieve. We are currently partnering with Beta Nightclub, So Co, The Blackbox, Imagine Music Festival, Bassnectar, Be Interactive, Bass Network, and several other EDM organizations.
