A six-year-old boy set a new Guinness record for being the world’s youngest club DJ after he played an hour-long set at a restaurant in Japan.

Born on 26 November, 2010, the young DJ was aged 6 years and 114 days on the day he set the record.

Morita played an hour-long set at a restaurant and bar in Osaka Japan on 20 March 2017, according to the Guinness World Record website.

Itsuki Morita, who has just started attending elementary school in Japan, played a number of tracks using professional DJ decks in front of a big crowd of both adults and other kids.

Morita was first taught to mix by a friend of his mother.

He likes to play a mixture of disco and rock music but Swedish musician Avicii is his favourite DJ.

“I saw people DJing and thought it looks fun,” Morita said, on being asked why he wanted to become a DJ.

“I was really happy that I could DJ. Everyone says it’s great,” he said.
