They've been collating screenshots of the weird and wonderful world of actual DJ names.
 

Real DJ Names pokes fun at some unfortunately named artists


Picture the scene: you're a bedroom DJ. For months now you've been slaving away over a pirated copy of Serato and pair of Numarks you picked up in Cash Converters. You've learnt how to beat-match, you've learnt how to fade, fuck it you've even - sort of - learnt the basics of harmonic mixing. 

You know your Jackmaster from your Farley Jackmaster Funk from your Terry Farley from your Todd Terry from your Todd Terje. You've put in hours upon hours mixing house into techno into tech house, into jackin house, into ghetto house into booty bass into bassline. You've worked hard, basically. You've learnt your craft is what I'm trying to emphasise here.

Then it finally comes time to take it to the next level, to share your skills with the world. You go on SoundCloud, you make and account and then... 

Then, you have to make probably the biggest decision of your soon to be professional DJ career. 

You have to decide on a DJ name.

Some people play it simple and use their birth name, others use alias, some reference their sound and some reference their history, and some... Well some just take the fucking piss.

Real DJ Names is an Instagram account that's dedicated to collating the worst examples of the later category. We've included a some of the less offensive examples below, and you can check out the rest on Instagram.


The featured DJ names range from the stupid...


To the gross...


To the impractical...


To the insensitive...


To the famous...


To the admittedly pretty clever...


Of course it comes as no surprise that a great many of them focus on male genitalia...





So.... yeah I guess that's about it. Thanks for reading guys, have a great day.
