    Default How did you come up with your "DJ NAME"

    Im just getting started and im mulling over a few names to put on billets. I come from the camp that a DJ name is something you come up with on your own, but a few friends of mine say you either earn it or it is given to you.

    How did you come up with your "Stage Name"? Was it given to you? Funny story behind it?

    As for me, im on the fence as to what i want to use. DJ Larry, my name isnt larry. It just sounds funny/cool but some guy from berlin is using it.

    DJ Blowski, i was in a skit for a webshow while on vacation and i inquired "HOW MUCH FOR A BLOWSKI" and my drunk friends at a house party yelled it out at me.

    The Last Rocketeer, I love that movie and this just sounds cool. Good costume possibilities

    I needed something french. Chicks dig dudes with European accents, or at least seem like some sort of exotic type.

    Though I play mostly edm these days and I'm fairly young, I have been and still am a lover of oldschool hiphop and my fav rap group of all time is A Tribe Called Quest. Hence the dj name Kid Quest and most of my web addresses/ email being "A Kid Called Quest"

    When i got started i was DJ Mensa, because i played intelligent drum and bass. Then i got a cease and desist letter from Mensa, so that was done.
    Then i played as Dr. Drew, for a while because my name's Drew and well yeah. But some other jackass had that already.
    So i started playing under the name Coup D'etat, I thought it was time for a revolution.
    But the revolution never came, and i'm certain that will be the cause for the end of the world, hence my current name "La Fin Du Monde!"
