Congratulations to Igor for earning the BA Spotlight for May! He’s mainly known as the guy who wears dresses (don’t ask), but you’ll also find him assisting other BAs with his Portuguese superpowers and helping users around the site. If you find him online, give him a virtual high five and thank him for all he does!
1. What is your username on plug.dj and where do you like to hang out?
First things first, hey everyone! My username on plug.dj is Igor, but I promise not to get mad if you accidentally call me Ingot, Igot or even Iggy. You can usually find me at Tastycat and visiting some random rooms sometimes. I also like to check some Brazilian rooms from time to time.
2. What music and artists are you excited about right now?
I’m a big fan of most EDM styles, but I’m also into rock, pop, and others. Right now I’m really looking forward an interesting indie-electro trio from London: Winters Island. You should check them out!
3. Where are you from? What do you do for fun when you’re not on plug.dj?
I’m from Brazil, Rio specifically, but I’m not so hue (usually). When I’m not on plug.dj I’m probably coding some stuff or hanging out with friends. And well, I go to school too, but I wouldn’t count that as ‘fun’.
4. Are you in school, or do you have a job?
Currently I’m in school still, 2 more years to go! Yes, I’m 15 years old still. (Don’t tell them I’m below the minimum age to be a BA, shhh.)
5. What are some things you hope to accomplish personally next year?
I hope to get some personal projects done within next year, and also start learning German.
6. What inspires you to be a Brand Ambassador?
Having the opportunity to help and get to know people from all kinds of cultures while discovering new music is just wonderful. I’m also pretty sure knowing you were able to help someone is one of the best feelings one can have. Being able to help the site as a whole, translating it, giving ideas/feedback/suggestions, etc. is very rewarding as well.
7. How do you contribute to the plug.dj community as a BA?
Probably one of the most important things I do for plug.dj is helping on its translation to Brazilian Portuguese (with Nantes). I also try to answer as many questions as I can and help suggesting and testing new features.
I love plug.dj for giving me the opportunity to help people and to contribute to the site as a whole and at the same time providing such a good experience as listening and discovering new music while meeting new people and being in touch with different cultures, styles, etc.
9. What’s the most common question you get about plug.dj, and how do you answer it?
As most BAs answered in previous Spotlights, I think the one question we all get the most is “Why is your name green?”, “What is a Brand Ambassador”, etc. I usually explain them the basics and then redirect them to plug.dj/ba.
10. Any final thoughts, advice or shoutouts you’d like to share?
First of all, I’d like to thank the admins for building such an awesome community and the entire Brand Ambassadors team for making it an even better experience. I’d also like to share an huge shoutout to the Tastycat staff and all the other users who have been close to me.
