Since its inception, Reddit’s “Ask Me Anything” function has served as a platform for celebrities, politicians, scientists, artists, and musicians to connect with their fans, and the general public, on a deeper level. Everyone from the President of the United States, Barack Obama, to Tesla CEO, Elon Musk, to Game of Thrones actor, Peter Dinklage, has used Reddit’s “AMA” forum to give the casual fan a glimpse at their personality behind their fame. Through the years, some of music’s biggest artists have conducted AMAs – from rapper Snoop Dogg, to electronic stars Kaskade and Laidback Luke.
Today, starting at 6 PM EST, dance music fans will have the unique opportunity to pick the brain of one of the scene’s most prominent voices – Billboard Dance editor-in-chief, Matt Medved. In addition to leading the dance spread of one of the most respected music publications in the world, Medved has also made a name for himself as the DJ / producer, Sicarii, with remixes of Maroon 5, Frankie Knuckles, and SomeKindaWonderful. In the years before Billboard, Medved worked as a journalist in countries like Zimbabwe, South Africa, and South Korea, in addition to working for the international conflict resolution NGO, Search for Common Ground, in Nigeria.
