HELP ME CHOOSE MY "ARTIST" NAME

Post by supamonsta » Tue Nov 25, 2008 12:13 pm

I an brainstorming those days, as I'm workin on tracks to be produced and released with the help of god.

I'm used to call myself (as an electronic artist) MONSTRE JUMO
this name has a 6-7 years history, is related to a strange dream I had.

translated in english that would be tween monster or twinn monster (jumo is not the good one, in real french it would be monstre JUMEAU)

But since 6 month approx, I tend to use SUPAMONSTA as a name... that was designed to better fit my groovy electro stuff, and was theoretically better for international purposes...

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THIS, YOU INTERNATIONAL FRIENDS?

MONSTRE JUMO ?
SUPAMONSTA ?


thanks to any comments

best wishes to all of you

Why to go from original and interesting to boring and somewhat irritating. 1+ for Monstre Jumo as well.

+1. I like it. Very cool name... Are you French? How about:

Méchant Jumeau or Méchant Jumo

Stick with MONSTRE JUMO.

Jumo is already taken, and Supamonsta will probably end up sounding dated.

Les Jumeaux Aphexe.

:D

No. I agree with the others. Monstre Jumo is cool in itself.

Another +1 for Monstre Jumo - it's unusual and interesting, and Jumo sounds like a cross between Jumbo and Juno, which is good - keep it!

:D

thanks for your interest and nice advice, fellows.

You're right, supamonsta is a bit fierce and "american pseudo-gangsta" sounding...

:lol: I love this, but a bit too long. This could be my next EP title !!!! can I keep it please ????

Yes Patch, I'm french. It's funny you think about "Méchant", because I got a side project (totally amateur, and a bit abandonned those times), that is industrial-electro-metal and that I called "Monstre Jumo Méchant" !!!


I'm really happy to see the most of you do think monstre jumo is interesting and original, I was afraid that it could sound too much weird for non french people.

But I guess now that weirdness can be a good thing ;)

THANK YOU SUPA MUCH !!!

love
monstrejumo

Monstre Jumo is sweet. I can't really see you using this name if you should slow things down over the years and start doing touching ballads and stuff, but it's cool.

As long as you don't steal my rights to "DJ Potato Salad," do as you will.

Symbol...

but prince was Prince before becoming "the love symbol"...

If no one is able to spell my name/sumbol, as I am still a totally unknown electroboy... I won't last or even get a booking ;)
And I believe my musical destiny not to be so huge, if musical destiny I have !!! so I don't need a symbol for now. When I'm internationnaly well-known... :lol:

what about Potato Monstre Salad? :lol:


thanks a lot, I'm becoming more and more attached to my first one, Monstre jumO... yes weird indeed, and not style-focused !

do you feel this name a bit "agressive" ? (but that's cool to me, I like metal hardcore as I like electro and folk-rock music)

+ 1 for Monstre Jumo...

Definitely original, and I might look up your tunes just on the name!
If you can imagine it, it can happen...

I would stick with Monstre Jumo unless you like the sound of Nucking Futs? :lol:

anticipate having this available until at least the next major release.
