If you had asked me today what I thought the longest DJ set ever performed would be, I would have probably guessed a few days. I mean, three days max, right?

Turns out we’ve gotten way past that and in the pursuit of holding this record DJ’s have now taking it as far as 10 days. Holy cow that is a lot knob-turning and shouting “hands up!” into a mic that you quickly drop next to the CD-J’s.

Chauncey Graves, known as DJ Colossus, broke the record at 1 p.m. on Sunday, after DJing for 10 straight days at Spinelli’s on Baxter Avenue. He began his set on Thursday, April 20.

How would you even score this or keep track of what needs to go down to break the record?

Colossus was allowed a five-minute break for every hour that he completed. He endured the 10 days of DJing by drinking plenty of water and eating oranges, as well as pizza, of course.

The best part of the rule to me is that you need to have at least one person dancing at all times. LOL that’s a weak-ass turnout, bruh!

But for real, kudos to Colosuss for bringing the record back to the US. He bested the previously record holders — DJ Obi in Nigeria and Norberto Loco from Poland — by about four hours.
