dj names / dj name

what are some of the greatest dj names you've encountered?

my favorites include:

K-Mart
Baron Von Stupidhead
dj Fine-Wine

_____________________________

also, I am looking for a new dj name for myself... I play many styles: dancehall, bhangra, rai, hiphop, grime, minimal-techno, dub-house, jungle, down-tempo, noise, ambient... my mixing is usually very smooth.

a few from friends that I kind of like:

Sirius (or Dog-Star)
Carbon
Wanton
Peking-Duck
Fungi
Cobalt
Pump-kin


any suggestions??????????????????????????????????????????????????

Asian/China references are good... so are mystical/occult themes... or physics/philosophical (but obviously don't want to sound like a pretentious twat)... or absurd/totally fucked up - like Peking Duck (which is growing on me by the way - it's so totally and completely messed up).

Peking Duck reminds me of DJ Roast Chicken, who later became Goosebump :)

My personal DJ name highlight was Chocolate Biscuits.

Pump-kin has terrible in-breeding connotations. Why not confucius?

dj nut-nut
dj nut-e-1 (and many other variations on a theme)
dj tool
dj one finger

...and my personal fave, dj pants - although maybe not quite so amusing for the non-brits (or even for the brits, for that matter!)

The best (and by best, I of course mean funniest) DJ name I ever came across was in some German Rave magazine:

DJ CHOSEN FEW

I used to to do a jungle show with Triple A & Golden Maverick, which were both popular remedies for Liver Fluke parasites in cattle.


As for you Confucius, Confucius is a pretty cool name...

because it makes me sound like a PRETENTIOUS TWAT don't you think???!!!
it's like dj Plato. or dj Sophicles. NOT good.

I don't even want to use it online anymore. it was really just a whim of a choice for screen name.

Christoph Pissed Off is awesome. so is Wrong-Speed... Nut-e 1...

I've been going by dj Zhao - which is my last name, but to Chinese people it just sounds like DJ-Smith.

I also like the one word artists names... a bit 90s, and a bit modernist pretentious... but I still like them:

Oval
Curve, etc...

SUGGESTIONS PLEASE!!!!!!!!

wot u tink of DJ-WANTON?

Double-pun whammy: Jack Uzi is kinda hot for a guy who DJs real fruity 80s soul, funk and electro business.

On the jacking tip there's a New Zealand composer called Jack Body, who really should've become a house DJ. ;)

There's also a guy down south called Fraserhead, which I think is only awesome because his name's Fraser.

i think dj smith would make a wicked (and superbly understated) dj name!

but because of the pun. which is not there in my Chinese name.

Wu-Ming means no-name in Chinese... which I think is v. good. but a group of Italian writers already claimed that. there is a dj-Nobody here in LA...
