    The Official DJ Name Thread

    That's right. This is the OFFICIAL DJ Name Thread for DJF 2.0. In this thread, you'll understand ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT:

    * Great DJ Names when you start out as a Bedroom DJ
    * Better DJ Names when you start out as a new Mobile or Club DJ
    * THE BEST DJ Names when you make it big and start to perform in front of 200,000+ people

    Sound good? GREAT! Let's begin...



    When you start out as a Bedroom DJ...
    This is a tough one. When you start out, you're excited and have dreams of playing for large crowds that chant your name as a big crowdgasm plays! You think that you've GOT to have a great DJ name now so that you can build on it as you grow.

    Here's the truth. No one gives a sh*t about your DJ name when you begin. They care more about your skills... or the fact that you don't have any. Put your effort into learning and keep your original name that your parents gave you. That'll tell everyone that you're not riding the wave of being-a-DJ-because-it's-cool but you're actually going to learn to be a real DJ. Earn the respect by learning the skills, son.

    When you start out as a new Mobile or Club DJ
    Now this is getting real. You've put in your time practicing. You've purchased gear that you can start to rely on. Now you're getting out there and showing the world that you're ready for the dollar-dollar bills, y'all. You want a DJ name that people will remember. You've followed my advice when starting out and wonder is it time to change your DJ name to something "catchy."

    Here's the truth. No one gives a sh*t about your DJ name even when you start gigging. They care more about your ability to entertain a crowd... you can do that, right? If you really want to be cool, use your initials. Keep in mind that BT, ATB, KLH, NTO, and NPC are already taken. If those are your initials, you're sh*t out of luck, bro.

    When you hit the BIG TIME
    Now this is what we ALL dream about. YOU are LIVING IT. You already are performing in front of 200,000+ crowds. Babies are named after you. Clubs and mobile events sell out because you're going to be headlining. Should you change your name NOW to something cool like "Grandmaster" or "Mixmaster" or something like that?

    Here's the truth. You are making serious dough with the name you've already used. If you change it then no one will know who you are. Duh.

    In conclusion, there's a theme. Did you see it? No one gives a sh*t about your DJ name. Develop the skills, the knowledge, the music, and the persona. The name is just a name.

    Now get back to practicing before we name you DJ Penor.

    EDIT:
    * DJTT has a great article on DJ names, if you're hell-bent on making one up.

    Stuck. Nice one, KLH. Penor is old though. Try DJ K1d p33n.
    Everybody is going to have an opinion.
    Just do your thing to the best of your ability and have fun with it.

    No one gives a sh*t about your DJ name when you begin. They care more about your skills... or the fact that you don't have any.

    Thats GOOD that you guys came up with this "DJ name" thread. So no more worries about getting a threads posted all the time about a dj name. But dont be surprised that a newbie may still post a "DJ name" thread LOL
