What is Dummy?

Dummy is a website dedicated to discovering and supporting the best new music from around the globe.

Dummy was started by Paul Benney and John Burgess, founders of '90s electronic dance music and club culture magazine Jockey Slut. After Jockey Slut closed in 2004, Paul and John decided to start a new magazine that took Jockey Slut’s passion for new music and move it forwards while retaining the important elements of any decent magazine – great writing, photography, and design.

After seven print issues, it became clear that the future of publishing arena was now the internet, and in 2009 Dummy launched in its current incarnation.

Dummy continues to expand rapidly and can now boast over 250,000 unique users per month.
