Poor effort knowing about Smokin Joes ineligibility and not saying something after he launched his attempt..

@Dexter Ramone.....nope, it's a competition. Poor effort by Joe for not going through all the proper avenues to ensure his attempt was legit.

It is a competition, but some would choose to be a bit more ethical about how they go about it..
Not to mention not mixing for much of the set...

To say that's lame is a massive understatement

Smokin Joe Mekhael would like to congratulate Hertz on breaking the record and let him know that he'll be coming for the title later this year!

congrats on making it 152 hrs, and congrats for being a show boater, the only reason u had a crack is for fame or anything that closely resembles it, Smoking Joe will break your record easily and wouldnt be surprised if he goes for 200 hrs, i hope u get some more gigs and u do make something out of but in reality all u have done is show people that that this is an easy way to fame, in your case ( maybe 5000 friends on facebook) , smoking joe didnt do it for fame he did it because he wanted the record and title, you just wanted to be able to get more work !!! i can see this occuring every year now for the next decade, so ummm yeah GOOD ON U !!! TOOL!!

Yeah I've thought that before as well. Gonna get real boring real fast, already a bit zzzz for my liking. Will be interesting for how much longer ITM continue to write news on it

I personally think the stipulations to the record are ridiculous if it enables the person to put a song on a loop and sleep up accumulated hours en masse.

there should be some kind of limit for how long they can keep a single song playing. this isnt a record for the "longest dj set" its a record for staying awake whilst attempting to dj.

Having said that, good on SJM and Hertz for staying awake like that, I couldnt do it. I just disagree on what the title actually is.

I love how everyone's saying "Oh noes he didn't mix!!!!111111". You try staying awake for 100 hours straight and see if you can still mix.

I agree with the majority, doing it for a personal achievement is awesome and congrats and well done, doing it for your career/fame and fortune is lame, might work short term, won't get you very far long term.

really? competition? there isn't much skill involved... basically the skills are having 150+ hours to waste.

not to take anything away, but it's more an "achievement" rather than competition...

And therein lies the challenge

Might as well have a record for just staying awake with background music on

Looks like a pretty good turnout for the 150 mark.

Wait...so they don't get to sleep? I wanna see how this is set up, is it like a broadcast or is a club just open for 150 straight hours with people coming in and out.

When I tuned in there was a group sing-a-long going and they were chanting "haters gonna hate" and all sticking their fingers up to the webcam. That summed up the attempt nicely for me.

hertz defenders are classic

pomrocks said it all.

when someone actually djs for 150hrs, then i'll be impressed.

just staying awake for 5 days and changing the cd occasionally, whilst is a hard thing to do, is not that impressive

What is with all these Australian DJs trying to take the reigns of longest set and having the same moniker as well established artists? Case in point DJ Promo and techno duo Hertz.
