So, if you were a DJ (or maybe you’ve just got yourself some decks) what would you call yourself? It’s a tricky question, and to help you out we’re gonna pass you on some tips we got from our friends:
Don’t copy other DJs! It will confuse people and make you look like you lack imagination. Nobody will trust you – remember that time you bought a ‘miPhone’ thinking it was a good deal? 5 days later the screen fell off. Same thing! Once you have some cool ideas, search online for other DJs to make sure you’re not copying.
Examples: Deadmoo5e | DJ Deep9 | DJ Dauggy | DJ ConFrank
Do we need to explain this to you? Boss won’t let us use naughty words so use your imagination.
If people can’t say your name, they probably can’t spell it. And if they can’t spell it, they can’t search for your tunes, your Soundcloud, or embarrassing party pics. But the choice is yours.
Examples: DJ Phrodidgia | DJ Zdenkska (Polish?) | DJ Schlooue | DJ Bauwdy Dauwg
DJ Grow Up Already
You never know where music will take you. Pick a name you’ll be proud to flaunt late into your career – at 20 your name might be really cool but if you’re still gigging at 40 how will you feel?
Examples: DJ Pikachu | DJ Short n’ Thin | DJ RebelRebel | DJ 3G |
If you don’t want to become dated, don’t give yourself a name that will likely become dated. DJ names based on pop culture – TV shows, movies, other stars etc will make you seem super old to new, younger fans as your career progresses.
Examples: DJ BigBang | DJ 人人 | DJ Dragonball |
