The nightlife and clubbing scene is among the industries most affected by the coronavirus pandemic.
But DJs around the world kept their spirits alive by entertaining their fans throughout the lockdown, with the convenience of live streaming through several online platforms.
Here in Malaysia, there’s still no indication as to when clubs can reopen, and so Malaysian DJs have come together to show Malaysia (and the world) that their presence can be felt in a positive light, by creating a record-breaking attempt titled “Independance 2020”.
The Malaysia Collective of DJs operating under the banner of DJs Jaga DJs (DJ’s taking care of fellow DJs) are attempting to break a record for the Malaysia Book of Records (and some say a world record) for the longest DJ Livestream.
This feat will take 11 days of non-stop broadcast beginning on Friday, August 21st 2020 at 8.00 pm, and ending with the finale set beginning on Sunday, August 30th 2020 at 10.00 pm and ending at 12.00 am to ring in the National Day celebrations on the 31st.
There will be 124 DJs from all over Malaysia taking part in this feat, and listeners will be treated to music spanning various genres, including Retro, Open Format, Trap, Raeggaeton, Hip-Hop, Soul, R&B, Funk, Neo-Funk, Latin Pop, Afro Latin, House, Handbag House, Disco House, Tech House, Techno, Progressive House, Trance, Minimal Techno, Melodic Techno, Bollywood and even Old School Tamil and Tamil Hits!
“Give some love and support to your favourite DJs and join in to listen to some varied and very talented people who love entertaining you by playing music to put a smile on your face. #DJsJagaDJs look forward to putting on this awesome show for you and also hope to be successful in this attempt,” said Jay Subramaniam, co-founder of Malaysia DJ Collective, and organiser of Independance 2020.
