Iam.DJ is the ultimate tool for staying in touch with popular DJs and discovering new music as the artists update various social media accounts.
Iam.DJ is a social platform that allows EDM fans to stay in touch and in tune with their favorite DJs from around the world by pulling information from the DJs various social networking sites and displaying them in one convenient location. For a user’s account, the site also integrates with Twitter and Facebook, so that saves a step in adding yet another social network into your daily routine. Once you’re logged into iam.dj, however, you can begin searching through your favorite DJs. You can give your favorite musicians “Respect” by clicking a button beneath their profile, which is the equivalent of a Like on Facebook or a Follow on Twitter. Also similar to Twitter, the left side of the Iam.DJ screen features a section called “#Real Time Hype.” That section is equivalent to the trending topics of Twitter, although every hashtag is EDM or DJ related (the current top hashtags include the event-specific #edcny and the more general #housemusic).
There are tons of great DJs already using Iam.DJ, with huge names like Just Blaze and Kill the Noise having profiles alongside lesser-known DJs. One of the major reasons to use the service is to discover new songs and sets, and DJs are constantly adding new music via iam.dj’s “sound” section. In the future, there will also be the ability to search through the upcoming events of particular DJs. The platform is currently in beta mode, but it plans to be available on the web, iOS and Android soon. That multi-platform approach will definitely beneficial for the site, which could allow fans to receive nearly constant updates from their favorite DJs – whether it be status updates, photographs or new music. All of this information is collected from a DJs many social platforms (Soundcloud, Beatport, Twitter, etc.), and displayed in one profile. This makes tracking all the online activity of your favorite artists in one simple location.
