About Mix 247 EDM :

Mix 247 EDM was born and bred to be Your Pulse on Today’s Best Dance Music.

We know you may not be able to make it to every festival, catch every latest track from your favorite artists or keep up with all the latest EDM fashion trends, so our team has that covered for you all in one place.

The question we are asked all the time is, “How did you get started?” The short answer is – Vegas. Who doesn’t love Vegas? The vibe, the energy, the escape. We wanted to take that same feeling and bring it to Colorado. With heart and determination we added a team of ravers, writers and lovers of the industry from around the United States who put their heart and soul into everything they do – just like you.

While on this journey we came to realize the lack of promotion of female talent inside the music community. We felt a need to rise up and show the diverse talent out in our creative world. Female empowerment shines though each team member. Not only that but we feature up and coming talent on the rise as well. Everyone deserves a voice in this community – let yours be heard!

We are excited to include you in Mix Nation, a positive voice in the EDM community focusing on what PLUR is all about. A place where we all feel included no matter our differences. No judging or bullying is accepted in Mix Nation.

We welcome you to listen to your favorite dance music while you browse our website, mobile app, and our AM/FM stations around the country.

**Please provide a cover letter explaining why you are the best candidate for the position
