THE RAZZ: Clubbing nation : Initial problems as Aydin plays name game.

ATFC still can't believe people get his name wrong, even though he changed it to make things easier.

The DJ, real name Aydin Hasirci, who has released dance classics Bad Habit and In and Out, was writing dance reviews for a magazine when his editor added Aydin The Funky Chile to the end of his article.

'My studio is at the end of the garden so she's not too far away.' One of Aydin's first jobs will be to oversee the release of his first mix album, Hip Joints.

'I can prove myself in a club in front of a few hundred people but this is setting it in stone,' he said. 'There's no getting away from it, if it's good or bad
