    Was thing of calling myself Dj Hazza (or just Hazza) as my sirname is harrison

    but think it's to close to Dj Hazzard, people would deffo be disapointed if they came to see Hazzard and seen it was me on the decks lol.

    So how to pick a name, i guess there is no way of knowing if anyone has an identical name (possibly a google search.

    Was thinking of DJ NG3 (first part of postcode) what do u think?

    How did you pick your names? What do they mean?

    Safe

    my Dj nams isnt Don't Sleep but:

    a name should be something that relates to you, your lifestyle, what your about etc

    at the end of the day it doesnt matter what your name is man. as long as you can rinse the decks it doesnt matter really.

    Aslong as it's not something stupid like DJ WeedSmoker, DJ Pills, DJ DoubleDrop etc etc then it'll be sound.

    Personally ive always wanted a different dj name, i had so many shit ideas for a name, then $marty came up wiv 1, an we always went b2b, so $mart n $lick kinda just rolls off the toungue
    Dexcell was made in some madness over thinkin bout names an it really didnt make any sence to us at first but we were manly thinkin bout artwork for it an decided to stick wiv it. (had an idea for a bad company type logo the eib thing)
    I did hav a brainstorm the other day come to think of it, dunno if these are used but : Dj Konsice, Rikta, Prymal, Koncept, 3Flow, Anatomix, Fizza, Malware, and PH I was gona pick koncept or anatomix for myself but i think i may hav to stick wiv slick, as ive kinda got this far now, no point in changin it.

    Go on wikipedia and click on 'random article' for as long as it takes until you find a name or expression that clicks, thats what i did, best decision ever!
