You’re professionally experienced with when the bass drops, but do you know how the artist’s name is pronounced?!
Personally, one of the things that irritate me the most is when someone says “dead-mau-5” instead of “dead-mouse.” (Even my girlfriend isn’t spared!)
Admitted, learning how to pronounce a few DJ names can be hard, thanks to their “swaggy” names mixed with numbers, random words or punctuation marks. Moreover, these guys come from every corner of the world, belonging to different nationalities, speaking languages other than Hindi and English.
It took me my childhood to realize Will.I.Am is actually just William! In order to avoid any public embarrassment, I decided to compile a list of some of the most mispronounced or difficult names to vocalize in the dance music industry. Try and see, how many do you already know?
Easiest one on the list. “Tee-ess-to.”
Okay, so it is “Blau,” not “Three-Lao.”
Basic, “Get-aah,” not “Goo-etta.”
The name’s pronounced as “Dubbs.” It is not meant to be spelled out as D-V-B-B-S.
It is simple! “NET-SKY” not “NET-SKI!”
Prydz is actually articulated as “Pr-ID-z,” ignoring the long ‘I’ sound to be made by Y.
Dzeko and Torres
A difficult one. It’s uttered as “Jeck-oh & Torres.”
Is it MAHK or MACK? Apparently it’s “Mack Jay.”
Call him AN-Two-One or simply Antoine!
Give it a go, “Ehr-Yan Neel-sen.”
Humse na ho payega.
