13-year-old DJ RENA was crowned the champion of the inaugural Kame World Classic DJ competition on Saturday. The battle’s Triple Threat Final took place at the Mercury Theatre in Auckland, New Zealand.
RENA’s win comes just five months after he became the youngest DJ to win the DMC World Championship at 12 years old in October.
The Japanese turntablist squared off against his countryman DJ Fummy and Denmark’s Graded in what was a thrilling three-round final. Each DJ threw down three impressive routines, but in the end, judges Total Eclipse, Vekked, and DJ Brace felt RENA did enough to win. Fummy and Graded took home second and third place respectively.
Also competing in the battle was 14-year-old New Zealand native and current IDA World DJ Champion, DJ K-Swizz. He took fourth place while Brazil’s Erick Jay (5th) and Nedu Lopes (6th) rounded out the top six.
The Kame World Classic is a worldwide DJ competition based out of New Zealand. The event began with six online regional battles held in Asia, Australia, Europe, New Zealand, North America, and South America. The top two DJs from each region were invited to compete in the world final.
Sponsors for the battle included DJcity, Serato, Numark, Akai, and Soundswitch.

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 turntablist 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.
