DJ Rena has become the youngest ever winner of the DMC World Championship at just 12 years old.

The Japanese artist was also the youngest ever finalist to take part in the DMC World Championship in last night’s competition (1st October).

DJ Rena took part against competitors from 16 different countries. Second place was taken by French entrant DJ Skillz with third awarded to New Zealand’s DJ Spell.

Previous DMC World Champion Mr Switch gave DJ Mag the lowdown on Pioneer’s DDJ-SZ2 controller in May.
