The often under-rated but ABSOLUTELY essential DJ, is and always will be a MAJOR part of hip hop. How can you say you love hip hop, without acknowledging the relevance of the DJ? I say you can’t. This DJ in particular does it like no other. If you have ever been to a Common show and even more recently, a J. Cole show, you should be able to understand the significance and talent of the man that is, DJ Dummy!
When Native Instruments heard that Common's and J Cole's DJ, the legendary DJ Dummy, was going to do a rare in-store appearance with the S4 and turntable control, they rushed a couple of cameras down to catch the master at work. They only managed to capture sound from thier live camera - but they loved his performance so much that they had to share it with everyone. Dummy first quick mixes with the S4's on board controls using cue points then mixes things up with vinyl beat-juggling. Learn a lot from the Dummy. All S4 purchases in July 2011 worldwide will qualify for the S4 Scratch Upgrade for free, expanding the S4 to Traktor...
Whilst in London for the Wireless Festival in Hyde Park DJ Dummy sat down with Amaru Don TV for an interview.

Early this year DJ Dummy came over to the UK with J Cole on Drakes European Tour. During this time J Cole performs ‘Who Dat’ and ‘In The Morning’ in session for Mistajam from the BBC’s legendary Maida Vale studios, as always his trusted DJ was by his side.
