Twenty years after 15-year-old A-Trak became the youngest DJ to win the DMC World Championship, 12-year-old DJ RENA took the crown in London on Sunday.
The Japanese turntable beat Frenchman DJ Skillz and New Zealander and current DMC Online Champion DJ Spell who placed second and third, respectively. RENA’s win marks the second year running that a Japanese DJ has triumphed in the battle. DJ Yuto won in 2016.
The DMC World Supremacy title was secured by another one of their countrymen, DJ Yukichi, who beat DJ Dwells from the U.S. using real vinyl and no DVS system.
Rane were the main sponsors of the event, with RENA winning a unique gold SEVENTY-TWO mixer, and DJ Yukichi taking home a TWELVE turntable with a one-off gold vinyl disc.
