1. What is your username on plug.dj and where do you like to hang out?
My username on plug.dj is xBytez and I usually hang out in Trap City and Radiant Music. I love both communities!
2. What music and artists are you excited about right now?
Right now I’m loving Trap Music and I always have been. I like all sorts of bass music really. Sometimes, depending on my mood I can really enjoy chill. My favorite artists at the moment are: Apex Rise, Matstubs, Flume, Lido, GAWTBASS, Aero Chord, Boeboe & Lexxmatiq.
3. Where are you from? What do you do for fun when you’re not on plug.dj?
I’m from the Netherlands. When I’m not on plug.dj I am most likely either sleeping or traveling to college/home. I really enjoy coding and just experimenting around with IT related stuff. It’s what I do. I either code, experiment or help people with their tech issues.
4. Are you in school, or do you have a job?
Yes, I’m currently in school. I am currently doing a IT System Administration course. plug.dj is my source of music during this when I’m making my course work. Without it, my work would take much longer picking songs and discovering new songs, now I can stay active in a community socializing with people and do my course work at the same time!
5. What are some things you hope to accomplish personally next year?
I would love to get some good results on my tests and to make some money to go travel. But my top priority is to pass the year in college.
6. What inspires you to be a Brand Ambassador?
I love helping people. I’ve always been trying to help people with their tech devices. It’s just what I do. Share the knowledge. Making people happy is my inspiration. Because myself I always love being helped when I’m in trouble and there’s no better feeling than finally getting a problem solved that you’ve been stuck on for a while. I try to keep plug.dj a nice place to be for everyone to enjoy and play and discover new amazing music.
7. How do you contribute to the plug.dj community as a BA?
Usually with tech related issues I help people getting back up and running on plug, I help moderate the subreddit (/r/plugdj) and I write scripts to help moderate and even try maximize the plug.dj experience.
8. Why do you love plug.dj? What’s the most exciting thing about plug.dj?
I love music, I love socializing. plug.dj is both of this and much more. Making new friends whilst discovering new music! It’s simply amazing and the UI of plug.dj makes it fun, simple and enjoyable for everyone.
9. What’s the most common question you get about plug.dj, and how do you answer it?
The most common question I get is either “What is the green microphone?” or “When do you guys release the mobile app?”. I usually answer with a link to the brand ambassadors page and explaining that we are just users like them and that we are global moderators to keep plug.dj a nice place to be. Regarding the mobile app I always reply with the link to sign up to get an email when it is ready (http://signup.plug.dj) and say that it’s planned and you’ll get an e-mail when it’s done.
10. Any final thoughts, advice or shoutouts you’d like to share?
