I'm a dj/producer, but that does NOT mean there has to be a headphone or something music related in the logo, but in the end it's about music so if you can add a subtle link why not. I like abstract art, vector art and sketch designs as well as negative space usage.
HECKMAN is the name of the project and that's what has to stand out. Things I like (but don't necessarily have to be used) are space, astronauts and anything crazy. HECK is pronounced the same way as GEK which means CRAZY in dutch, so maybe something could be done with that, which does not mean the logo has to be crazy to the bone, but I just don't want it to be just a nice font.
I like the idea of an icon coming back in the type to be used separately as well, but that's no priority.
In the end the logo will have to stand out on social media, flyers, posters, stickers,...
If you want me to choose your logo, don't just show me the logo, but also try to convince me by showing how it can be used.
