DJ Rena’s winning performance which you can check out at approximately the 54min mark in the video below, shows the turntableist spinning some neat tunes while literally spinning himself too! His 6min winning performance snagged the youngster major bragging rights in addition to taking home a dope exclusive and brand new GOLD Rane Seventy-Two,Premium 2 channel Scratch mixer along with a slick award and a sick jacket he will probably have to do some growing into, but hey its super cool nonetheless.
