THE lack of absurd DJ names has been linked to a decline in the quality of dance music.It even says ‘Grooverider’ on his debit card
A recent chart of the worlds highest-earning DJs revealed that they either perform under their real names or dull pseudonyms like Axwell that sound like car parts companies.
Professor Henry Brubaker of the Institute for Studies said: When rave culture was at its creative peak DJs had daft names like Grooverider, Pilgrim, or Digs and Woosh.
Even Sasha is a pretty stupid name for a bloke when you think about it.
Everyone around them was too nutted to advise them against such folly. Also this was before disc jockeys were placid corporate whores obsessed with their ‘brand’.
Now that its all been ruined and big DJs entertain massive sports arenas full of chronically steroidal young capitalists, they sound like a bunch of chartered accountants.
Professor Brubaker added that if Calvin Harris had any integrity he would call himself something interesting like DJ HorseForehead, Angela Lansbury or Medieval Fanta Lizard.
Stadium DJ Stephen Malley said: I actually tried to think of a stupid DJ name but found I lacked the creative capacity to do so. The best I managed was ‘Stevie’.”
