This is something i'm really interested in. It's crazy where people get their artist name from sometimes.
So speak up, what has been the thing that enlightened you, and gave your work a name?

cheers

Spliff has been a nickname for me since high school, seeing as how I hung with the stoner crew. So I thought that if I ever needed a DJ name that I would just go by DJ Spliff. Honestly I guess my name on here should just be Spliff becuase I have never palyed out,so I don't know If I've really earned that title.

DnBKings Avatar is what always catches my eye. Reminds me of the Lawnmower Man. If you've ever seen that movie. Isn't it from an old ass Dr. Pepper commercial?

What's the story behind your dancing guy sig Pimp? It always captivates me the way that guy is dancing. Is it a gay rights march or something?
