Bad stage name?

I had an interesting conversation today, I’ve been told that my stage name “Daniel Lesden” is associated with Trance or Techno music but not with Psytrance, and this is why I presumably don’t get enough attention from the Psychedelic community (despite the fact my album is currently #1 at Psytrance CDs charts).

What do you think about it guys? Is this really the case? It seems that for Psytrance producers it’s become a habit to use superheroes or famous characters’ names, but I don’t get what’s wrong in having a real name as a part of the alias? After all, aren’t musicians supposed to be judged by... well, you know, music?

I’m not really an expert in the industry. But I’m sure that the best brand you can create is your name. In any industry. I think „ a generic pair of ‘adjective and noun’“ sucks.
