Think you got the stamina for a three or four-hour set? Then how about 105 hours of straight-up mixing? That's nearly five days behind the decks! Which is what DJ Gee Papa (aka George Papapetrou) from Nicosia, in Cyprus, did recently, earning him the top spot in the Guinness World Record book. Gee Papa played an estimated 2300 tracks using two Pioneer CDJ-1000 MK3s, a DJM-800 mixer, two Vestax turntables and Funktion One loudspeakers. Under official rules, he was allowed four hours sleep over the whole period, plus trips to the bathroom. He's a real marathon man!
