The Guinness World Records' record for the oldest professional DJ is Sally Hille (USA, b. April 1920), who, aged 94 years and 92 days as of 2011 presents a weekly podcast on WMOA in Marietta, Ohio, USA.
Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the longest club dj session relay; it consisted of 133 participants and was achieved by Singapore DJs at Marina Barrage, Singapore on 9 August 2014. The previous Guinness World records world record was held by Singapore which had 133 spinners performing last year. Singapore reclaimed their last title after breaking Dubai's pre-existing record of 120 DJs in 2013.
Organised by the musical talent platform, World Top DJs and Dubai Ice Rink, over 150 DJs of various skill sets, ages and nationalities performed back to back.
Hundreds of skaters grooved along on the ice while mall visitors observed from the sidelines and enjoyed the eclectic music ranging from EDM and trance to house and R&B.
"The Dubai Mall is the perfect setting for an event like this," says Nadeem Choudhary, managing director and founding partner of World Top DJs.
"It's such a public venue, and the event can be witnessed by a lot of people – which is a top priority for us as organisers, as well as for all of the DJs who take out the time to be a part of such a huge event."
