12-YEAR-OLD SETS RECORD FOR YOUNGEST DMC WORLD CHAMPION

Japanese prodigy, DJ Rena has just won the 2017 DMC World DJ Championships, becoming the youngest champion in DMC history at just 12 years of age.

He beat turntablists from 16 other countries in the finals held in London. The battle, in collaboration with DJ brands Technics and Ortofon, has been running for over 30 years.

In 1997, A-trak famously won the same title when he was 15, astonishing the world as the then-youngest victor.
