A MUSIC loving 10-year-old from Weston has been named the most successful young DJ in the world.
After gaining his fourth world record for his disc spinning actions, Milton Park Primary School pupil Jack Hill, was recently given his new title by the World Records Academy, an international organisation which certifies world records.
Jack’s achievement is based on his success so far, including his previous three world records for youngest DJ, youngest club DJ and youngest male radio presenter for his show on Star radio, now renamed as Nova.
The Upper Church Road resident performed at the National Exhibition Centre (NEC) in Birmingham this summer and has gigged in Italy and Spain and featured in the 2009 and 2010 Guinness World Records book.
Jack’s parents Robert and Faye said: “We are so proud of Jack for his achievements so far.
“He has a real passion for music and to see him on stage mixing at the NEC was amazing. Everyone said how good he was.”
Since his debut gig at Weston’s Nook and Harbour bar in May 2006, the youngster has featured in national newspapers and magazines, appeared on BBC Newsround and played live on Radio 1xtra.
Jack, who has a weekly show on Cheddar’s Pulse radio, will attend an official presentation night in January to receive his honour.
