Posted:OK, so I was listening to Digitally Imported Radio, trance channel, and a track came on by --get this-- a "DJ Cellulitis."

Cellulitis is a skin infection by a bacterium that has the ability to eat away the goop between the cells that normally prevents infections from spreading. Thus, the infection spreads rapidly. It is characterized by a red, warm, and painful region on the skin that spreads rapidly (over a few hours) to cover a large area. It is almost always accompanied by fever and malaise (a general feeling of illness). Cellulitis is a medical emergency that must be treated with IV antibiotics and usually involves a few days in hospital for observation.

Now, I have seen some DJ names with medical/biological significance (DJ Hypertrophy is a cool example), but DJ Cellulitis? That's just stupid. What next, "DJ Metastatic Hemangiocarcinoma"?

Incidentally, if I ever find the time and money to get into spinning, I reserve "DJ Syncope" (fainting) for myself.

Posted:Funnier still are local band names. I always open up the village voice and look at the bandlistings just to giggle... There was this local glam band that goes by "Mike Hunt". Between every song the lead singer makes a horrible pun. "You'll have to excuse us, its raining out and we're all excited so Mike Hunt is a little wet tonight..." "Stick around and you'll see much more of Mike Hunt this evening"... etc...

Well, shall we go?
Yes, let's go.

But DJ pseudonyms are supposed to sound cool, not make you laugh. DJ Lithium sounds cool. DJ Hypertrophy sounds cool. Hypertrophy is the psyologic enlargement of an organ by cellular enlargement. If you lift weights, then your muscles undergo hypertrophy. See, THAT'S a cool DJ name. DJ Tachycardia would be a cool name if people could pronounce it (that's an accelerated heart rate). But naming yourself after a nasty disease? Given, I'm probably one of the few people other than DJ Cellulitis himself who knows what it means, but still...

Posted:Well I'm a drum and bass DJ and I go by the name of DJ Salinger as The Catcher in the Rye is my fave book, it's got a twistedly dark undertone and it's quite a nice letter play with JD and DJ.

However, you should see how many other DJ's there are out there! I know of at least 2 DJ Salinger's in the US, thankfully House DJ's, but it goes to show how hard it is to get your own name these days. Cellulite may be extreme but it's unique at least. And quite often it's meant to reflect the tone of the toons, like how 'rejected placenta remix' isn't shocking in the world of Jungle but to the lay person would be pretty grotty!

Anthrax would be a cook DJ name, but a band got it. How about DJ Aureus (from Staphlycoccus aureus)? I think that would be a cool name based on an infectious disease.

Posted:I have to agree with pyrophile on this one. as a DJ I learned that so many DJ names are already taken. thankfully I dont think I have to worry aboot master sodium being used by anyone else.

but if I was going to use a medical condition for a DJ name, it would have to be DJ trisma (although I would spell it trysma). I mean, what medical condition could be more appropriate for the rave scene then jaw clenching. almost everybody there (at the local raves here, I know its better in different areas) has drug related trisma.


you can't have a war against terrorism because war IS terrorism.it's not about worshipping fire. its about making the fire want to worship you.

It was a day for screaming at inanimate objects.

What this calls for is a special mix of psychology and extreme violence...

Posted:I just notice with DJ's always , no matter what town you're in, there will be at least one whose name is a metaphor for speed. Examples:

DJ Quick
DJ Flash
DJ Swift
DJ Quicksilver
DJ Velocity
and so on...

So if you're a DJ and don't have a name yet, there's the formula for you

Not to deviate too far off-topic but this does kinda remind me of Boy Bands and how they have a small bank of names that every Boy in the universe has to pick from (JT, JD, DJ, TJ, CJ, etc....)


What hits the fan is not evenly distributed.
