    Not too difficult. You don't have to beatmatch to win. All you have to do is have 5000 records and a pound of speed.

    I recon I could do a week! Lol, nah but seriously I would love to give that a go. Pure endurance business.

    But of course I would keep my game up throughout!! (Yes that does mean beatmatching o_O )

    I'd get 6000 house records, add a bpm counter and watch old movies while mixing.

    The fella in the article's a lightweight...Pasta bakes, bananas & water?

    That's no diet for a working DJ...

    You hear of DJs at Thailand full moon parties doing sets for days & days.

    This should be a thing taken up more often. Not like a day but I definatly think more DJ's should be doing longer sets, gives a much greater chance to go through the box.

    They have extra special strong speed in Thailand. Really really nasty stuff. :rowley:
