A Nigerian dude that goes by the name of DJ Obi has just broken the world record for the longest ever DJ set played by one person. He broke the record with an absolutely monster 230 hour set at Sao Café Lagos, which is just shy of about 10 days straight.
DJ Obi was allowed cumulative two hour rest breaks each day, which he tried to take all and once to catch up on some sleep. Seems like it didn’t work out so well for him:
I woke up hallucinating after 4 or 5 days and had lost full control of my body.
I used the loss my father as an inspiration, constantly thinking to myself that my Dad was watching me and would be disappointed if I failed.
Here’s a BBC news report about his recording breaking set:
I really don’t know if I’d be able to dj for anywhere close to as long as this guy… big ups dude.
