    Default Speedy J. SIX AND A HALF HOURS



    I don't know how he & Chris Liebing play those marathon sets like that. After 2 hours my legs turn to jelly. After 6 I would probably be in a fetal postion.

    Yeah the style of music works well with longer sets, but six hours is still six hours.

    What's the problem with a six hour set? Waaaaaayyy more fun than playing a meezly two. Only problem/annoyance for me are the piss breaks (especially if you drink as much beer as I do while spinning).

    Agreed, very much enjoy long sets myself, 4-5 hours is perfect as you can really get in to it. I regard the first hour as purely warmup.

    used to be normal to play longer than two hours. most top40 DJs in my city still play the entire night (11pm-6am). 6 hours is far from what i would call a "marathon set".

    This. It's not a marathon until you get to 8 hours.

    It's called ego masturbation and/or "I get paid by the hour". Show me any good 6 hour set and I will edit it down to a better 2 hour set.

    3 hours is the maximum I want to hear any DJ. 1 hour minimum and 2 hours is ideal. That's my opinion after clubbing since 1988.

    I'm not implying that there's anything wrong with a long set. Quite the opposite. I put this up more in admiration. The longest I've played personally is 4 hours and that was New Years Eve at my own house haha.
