It all began when Darren “Daz” Jones was born in Leeds in 1986 and with those initials, he was always going to be DJ By Name.

DJ By Name like a lot of other DJ’s started playing vinyl’s in his bedroom aged 14. In his late teenage years, he managed to get a gig at a local club called XS.

As time moved on he swapped standing behind the decks to dancing in front of them and this is where he gained an education in dance music, inspiring the sets you hear from him today. You can expect to hear everything and anything that involves House, Funky House and NuDisco. 

DJ BY Name now has a weekly 2hour-long radio every Tuesday at 7pm on @clubreadyradio. A monthly residency on @ibizastardustradio along with a residency at his own event brand @funkmylife_events  The FML parties started in Harrogate but are now around England and Ireland.

Having now made his Ibiza debut and recently played at The Egg London last year 2023 promises to be another great year for DJ By Name along with some huge Funk My Life parties.
