Cast your minds back 20 years to the golden age of DJ battles, when a cherubic 15 year old Canadian DJ stepped up to the turntables at the 1997 DMC World finals. That DJ was A-Trak, and the rest is history. But last night at the 2017 DMC World final, a new record was set, for 12 year old DJ Rena (stood in socks on a platform no less) showed full grown world class DJs how it’s done.
I haven’t seen the full sets from the finals, but online commentary from people whose opinion I trust indicates that it was a well deserved win.
