LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A Louisville DJ has broken the Guinness World Record for the longest non-stop DJ set.

Chauncey Graves, known as DJ Colossus, broke the record at 1 p.m. on Sunday, after DJing for 10 straight days at Spinelli's on Baxter Avenue. He began his set on Thursday, April 20.

Colossus was allowed a five-minute break for every hour that he completed. He endured the 10 days of DJing by drinking plenty of water and eating oranges, as well as pizza, of course.

The previous record was held by DJ Obi, of Nigeria, whose set lasted 240 hours in 2016.

Colossus continued DJing for 3 hours, 56 seconds after breaking the record. Guinness will verify the results in the upcoming weeks.

DJ Colossus is a member of The Elitegiance DJ coalition, which was founded in Louisville and has members based across the U.S.
