    My name is stolen from a health and safety legislation. Coshh actually means Control of Substances Hazardous to Health. I needed a name and was on a course and liked the sound of the word so I went with Coshh.

    Although I slightly adapted the abbreviation to mean Control of Selection Hazardous to Health ;) and Coshh was born.

    My name comes from an old childhood nickname, that has something to do with photograph of me dressing up as Indiana Jones at a fancy dress party when I was 7 years old. Name kinda followed me around at school. Nevermind eh :teeth:

    Well my Dj name is Malicious Notation aka Malicious uk...

    Some peeps want a name that looks or sounds cool but tbo im not really bothered wot others think ..

    My name Molicious Notation came about while i was learning to beat match and blend Phrases when i first started on the decks. The book i use to learn talked about the beats, phrases and melody's in a system they called Notation... I liked the word but couldn't just call my self Notation lol..

    So... looking for somthing to go with it i came up with Malicious... meaning mischievous,evil minded, vicious etc... Which suits me as i like my DnB Dark, Raw and mashed up..

    Big up to Coshh like that one mate.. Indi, Gumby, Stedfast, SDM, Mesh and Bad Ace...

    Peace all...
