Missile Command member Hip Hop Dan decided to change his DJ nick to Daniel Biltmore because “the name “Hip Hop Dan” has become a bit of a head scratcher for promoters and booking agents. I feel as though by branding myself with a specific genre, it’s become a hindrance in my efforts to ascend the ranks of the DJ world. “Hip-Hop Dan? Does he just play hip-hop? Then why is that his name?” — I’ve encountered this exchange far too often.” said Dan, he continued with “This will probably elicit a few chuckles from my readers, but about a year ago Chad, my partner in Missile Command, started calling me “Daniel Biltmore” as an inside joke.

I thought it was a little silly at first — but after revisiting, I have to admit it has a pretty nice ring to it. And to be honest, what DJ names aren’t silly? So there ya go. My nom de guerre is now “Daniel Biltmore”. In the coming days/weeks/months/I will be changing my web site, twitter handle, business cards, etc. to all match up with the new name change. It may prove to be a bit more difficult than I am anticipating, but hopefully this (seemingly) small change will be a hugely positive one going forward.”
