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 who were the 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 glorious print issues they decided that, much as they loved print magazines, the most exciting publishing arena was now the internet and in 2009 Dummy launched properly online.

At this point Dummy also launched a record label called Dummy Records to run alongside the site, releasing some of the music we were excited about. So far we have released singles by The Golden Filter, Lost Valentinos, Lower, Runners, Cadenza, Tezeo and most recently Lorca.

Charlie Jones edited the site from July 2010, earning praise for Dummy from everyone from SXSW to the BBC. In October 2012 he decided to move on, and Aimee Cliff took over as full-time editor. Dummy continues to expand rapidly and can now boast over 100,000 unique users per month.
