DJ PROMO Guinness World Record Attempt. New Dates Confirmed!

New Dates Confirmed!!

Mon 12th Jun, 2006 // 09:00 am // The Vertex (Fed Square purpose built club) Free


In 2006, DJ Promo – who has played at famous UK superclubs, including Ministry of Sound, plus a host of venues around the world – will attempt to set a new Guinness World Record for the longest DJ session in history.

The existing record of 84 hours was set in February 2005 by a British DJ, Genix. DJ Promo, also from the UK, intends to smash this by a full 16 hours – taking the record to a new total of 100 hours live, continuous mixing.

In order to successfully claim the title and set a new, official record, 35-year-old DJ Promo must adhere to the following Guinness World Record (GWR) rules and regulations:

•Vinyl discs or CDs must be played throughout the attempt

•There must be no pauses longer than ten seconds between tunes

•No premixing (ie: pre-recorded sections on CD, or mastermixes on vinyl) is allowed

•No more than two turntables may be used (a third turntable, kept in reserve, may be used in the event of mechanical failure of either of the other two turntables)

•No individual disc, and no piece of music, may be repeated within four hours

•A list of all the tunes played must be maintained

•The event must take place on stage in a club or similar venue, open to members of the public, and not in a recording studio

•A dancing audience, even if it is a single individual, must be present throughout, but no audience member may attend for more than four hours at a time

•A break of 15 minutes must be taken every eight hours

To achieve his 100-hour target, DJ Promo will spend more than four days on his feet at the decks, without sleep, playing in the region of 1500 records back-to-back. The set will incorporate all genres of house music, from jazzy vocal to tribal progressive, and a selection of his own tracks. The attempt will take place in a temporary nightclub built especially for the occasion in Federation Square, Melbourne.

The event is being staged in a bid to raise funds for two Australian charities: The Big Issue, which enables homeless people to take steps towards getting off the street; and Challenge, which supports children living with cancer and life-threatening blood disorders.

This one-off event will start at 9am on Monday June the 12th. PROMO will break the record at 9pm Thursday, June the 15th and reach the 100 hour mark at 1pm on Friday, June the 16th.

Throughout the attempt there will be all sorts of additional entertainment taking place in and around the purpose built nightclub exclusive to this event. This entertainment includes live musicians and singers, acrobats and dancers as well as flare bartending displays and sporting activities.

The whole event is FREE and there will be no smoking or consumption of alcohol on site making the attempt open to all ages.

Come down and support this one-off charity clubbing event exclusive to Melbourne.

Well, it says there must be a dancing audience...so i spose that requires decent transitions - in theory

hahaha!!

there are going to be heaps of sideshows and a stack of entertainment so all in all it will be a rocking 4 days of progressive, Tribal and dirty chunky house!

and to top it off the soccer world cup will be screening in fed square around the same time i think!

if anyone was there at the last one when we knew we were going to germany then you know what you will be in for crowd wise!

its going to be awesome! the last guy made it to 80ish hours and said it was the hardest thing he has ever done in his life!!

lol thats true benny.

the sheer amount of preparation DJ Promo's been putting into this is nuts. He's played at Altitude with us a few times for the Sunrise Sessions and he's got a really diverse sound (nice chunky deep tribal house is where his best records are IMO). I'd love to play a 100 hour set with people dancing the entire time!

Firstly, thankyou ANOMYST for posting this thread. You've done your homework matey!! Let's see who's suffering more during those last 5 hours, you better get some sleep during the first 95 so you don't miss them, lightweight! Only joking mate, and you're right about the world cup being screened in Fed Sq.

DJ_ES-DVA wrote "I might of missed it but did it say anywhere that has to make each transition decent?" No it doesn't but I can assure you I'll be making every effort to ensure that I do

TONYDANZA wrote "I doubt that somehow .. since theyre allowing him a 10 second gap between tracks :P" I'm guessing the 10 seconds is incase of mechanical failure that would require me to swap decks. Please note that the record I'm attempting to break is the DJ (CLUB) LONGEST SESSION MARATHON which by implication requires me to perform as a Club DJ would.

SONEKA wrote "This is going to be awesome. I'll definitely be down there giving my support." Thank you, that's wicked and exactly what I need to hear.

NSONIC wrote "Well, it says there must be a dancing audience...so i spose that requires decent transitions - in theory" Yes again, I will be mixing proper club stylee!

DJ_ES-DVA wrote "so theoretically he can just do back to back mixes?" I don't quite know what you mean by this, back to back mixes is exactly what DJing is. If you mean something else then let me know and I'll try to answer the question better.

Thanks NYQUIST_THEOREM and everyone who has taken time to read and write on this thread. Everybodies support has been awesome and I can't wait to get behind the decks bring years of dreaming and months of preparation to hours of reality.

Big up everyone at TRANCEADDICT

Thankyou

MATT PROMO
