    Hey guys,

    Just thought I would raise this topic (it's probably been raised before but I couldn't find it on the site). Basically, my DJ name is Disguize and I DJ D&B as well as Hardcore. It was only meant to be my DJ name until I thought of something which I liked better, but then decided I may as well keep it.

    I found out today that G13 Records (D&B Label) have signed an artist called 'Disguise'. So it got me thinking:

    Has anyone else experienced their desired DJ name being used by someone else? Specifically in the scene that you DJ in? What did you do about it?

    I know it's not really a big deal but it's pretty annoying that someone else in D&B has pretty much the same DJ name as me... Kind of makes me want to change mine! :rolleyes:

    Cheers,
    Disguize

    I've already put a play on the word 'Disguise' I don't think I could do it again

    I have no time for a partner now, too busy DJing

    Can I dress up as The Brookes Brothers instead?

    well, unfortunately unless you have released under that name or built up a decent fanbase atc ( which i doubt if the g13 guy hasnt heard of you ) its kind of a race to make it into the public eye, or quickly go and turn your name into a licenced product or something i dont know, or change it, to Fratanize ... my cuz used to use that name but not into the scene anymore so bag that one, r go for Ewoks, or Ethix , or Katskan , or Dizstruxshon , or jimmy one drum , or thundercat bzerka , or giant dog cock, or anyting.. fact is, it aint that good name, its fairly run of the mill, and if g13 are big at all, he will be on flyers all over and ppl will hear of him before you wont they? decoy , d-coy , decor , disco burger, fur burger , wang , etc. just anything apart from dj x-tc , pr something, phil the pill maybe, moonshine, BLT , J.ROLLA , HANDS ZIMMA , TWISTED STEPPA , BRIAN BIG COCK , cat nuggets.

    Hey man don't hate on my DJ name! I know what you're saying though. I've never heard of G13 until today to be honest and it was luck that I came across this lad called Disguise. Brian Big Cock may be a possibility...

    Yeah I guess. I mean, I'm pretty new to the whole DJing & Producing thing but I like originality so I'm a bit gutted I found out there's another D&B artist that's got himself on a label and could potentially make it big (let's hope not!)

    G13 is already quite a big label tbh (in the world of jump up) so his name is out there already, wouldn't really give a fuck though just do what your doing, that or change your name to Dj ballsack, your move chief

    Go to discogs and search for artist names on there. Everything good has probably been taken already. Some have (2) or (3) etc etc etc etc... Not really a problem if there are djs with the same name in other genres/countries.

    If it bothers you, think outside the box. Some suggestions I doubt are already taken...

    DJ nobody has this DJ name
    DJ Hitler's love child
    DJ Will.I.mix.for.food.am
    DJ similar dj name
    DJ suckadick
    DJ bukkake belt buckle

    Rule 101 of the dj code


    NEVER USE ANOTHER DJ'S NAME NO MATTER WHAT.

    I just searched for my aliases on discogs. Guess I'm safe, for now.

    Also I got some ideas for Dj names:

    DJ letmepissaroundyou
    DJ donkeyballs
    DJ whatislife?
    DJ MJwasapaedo

    A freind who is now signed to Horizon amongst others, used to go by the name of "Stelth"...

    Roughly around the same time they both started releasing tunes on a large scale "Stealth" got signed to Renegade Hatdware...

    Unless you register your name as a tm you have no legal ground.

    Because at the time my freind only had releases on DSM and Logistic & Nu:Tones new label at the time (can't remember the name), after a few tense exhanges on various social media platforms, he decided to be the bigger man & give him a call to say he'd change his name...

    Brool.
