Yes its true, Dj Dummy has replaced Cee Lo Green as the opening act for Rihanna Loud Tour. He performed in Barbados in front of thousands of people who soon became fans.

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.

All S4 purchases in July 2011 worldwide will qualify for the S4 Scratch Upgrade for free, expanding the S4 to Traktor Scratch hands-on control with vinyl or CDJs. More info: http://www.native-instruments.com/traktor
