DJ Pied Piper is Still “Luvin’ it, Luvin’ it, Luvin’ it!”

DJ Pied Piper

After his phenomenal success with the Ayia Napa hit ‘Do You Really Like It?’ DJ Pied Piper is celebrating with the purchase of a special number plate for his blue Porsche Carrera 2.

“I wasn’t really into personal number plates until a friend of mine, Creed, said to me ‘that car needs a private plate’. He owns C7 EED, which is great, but I thought to myself, if I am going to get one I would prefer something more subtle. I saw the number plate 2 DEX (as in 2 Decks) in the Regtransfers sales brochure and the more I thought about it the more I thought that this was the dream plate for me.

When I rang back about it, I was gutted when they told me that it had just been sold! By this time I was really hooked on the idea of having a private plate, so I started to look at other options. I didn’t want a plate with ‘DJ’ on it, although I did look for ‘Piper’, but apparently someone already owns that. I finally decided on 15 EN, which is a very personal choice for me. Only close friends and family know the true meaning behind it.”

Pied Piper says he got his DJ name many years ago: “I was in a club, waiting to go on when someone came up to me and asked me what my DJ name was. I didn’t have one, so as I had a three hour wait for my turn, I thought I’d better come up with one! Pied Piper just seemed to make sense.” In the original verse by Robert Browning, The Pied Piper of Hamelin mesmerised the rats and then the town’s children with his music. It has proved a memorable and appropriate name for him, as one enthusiastic fan commented on a website recently: “‘Do You Really Like It’ has contagious lyrics that make this song the best on the planet!”

DJ Pied Piper and The Master of Ceremonies have a new single ‘We are here’, out on 10 December 2001. “We are shooting the video for it next week. The album will be out early next year, but we haven’t got a name for that yet.” D J Pied Piper and the MC’s were nominated for three MOBO awards recently including ‘Best Single’ and ‘Best Newcomer’.

To date they have won ‘Best Club Anthem’ at the UK Garage Awards and ‘Best Club Track’ (voted by all clubs in the country) amongst others. “The Smash Hits Awards are coming up soon and we will be going on the Smash Hits Tour.”

Important Private Number Plates Information

DVLA is the body responsible for enforcing UK private number plates and car registrations regulations. All UK private reg plates must conform to current DVLA specs. The DVLA was formerly known as the DVLC, but that title is now obsolete and DVLA, is the only current and correct acronym. For information on the location of Agency offices within the UK please follow the link: DVLA office locations. Please note that the link goes to a Regtransfers.co.uk information page created as a service to our visitors. It does not go to any part of the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency site. Disclaimer: DVLA is a registered trade mark of the Driver & Vehicle Licensing Agency. Regtransfers.co.uk is in no way affiliated to the DVLA or DVLA Personalised Registrations.

Car Registrations: Avoiding problems

Most reputable personalised number plates dealers are members of the CNDA (Cherished Numbers Dealers Association). Furthermore, all reputable car registration numbers companies follow the regulations regarding the display of dvla registrations. We strongly recommend that you avoid doing business with any numberplates company offering to make car number plates that contravene standards and regulations. Penalties are severe for breaking the display regulations: in addition to a substantial fine, you risk having entitlement to your cherished number plates permanently withdrawn without compensation. Regtransfers.co.uk advises that all vehicle registration numbers should be displayed on the correct, legal plates.

Fancy or decorative fonts are not allowed on Car Registration Plates, and only UK national flags are permitted: other symbols, such as football club emblems or religious symbols may not be displayed on private car number plates. The only variant font allowed as an option by the regulations is a 3D effect version of the standard font. The size and spacing of characters on registration plates is also specified. More information on private registration plates character spacing is to be found elsewhere on this website.
