    Default Two names for two genres?

    I know "dj names" are sort of a controversial topic but what do you guys thing about having two names?
    I spin electronic music at bars and clubs but I also do a lot of private gigs and a few bar gigs spinning hip hop and a little top 40s kinda stuff. To the venues and promoters I work with in electronic music it seems like a bit of a put off that I also do hip hop so would it be stupid to have one name or brand for myself for them and another for my hip hop/top 40s gigs?

    i don´t do it, but i in my opinion it´s totally okay to do that. my mate eric is spinning dubstep under the name aleph-o and tech house as eric goldstein, and a lot of german techno dj´s do it too. so feel free...

    Off hand I know Cajmere became Green Velvet when he changed styles. I don't see anything wrong with it.
