Today is the sixth anniversary of Michael Jackson’s passing and many people are showing their respect. So far, one of the standout tributes has been from Toronto turntablist, Dopey.
Earlier today, the former DMC World Champion posted a video of himself live remixing MJ’s “Rock With You.” The song is one of the few from its era that still gets played in top 40 clubs.
Dopey included the following message with the video:
“Michael Jackson has been a staple in my household for as long as I can remember. His unfortunate passing back on this day in 2009, sent shock-waves through the music industry and fans alike. This is my live ‘re-fix’ of his timeless track ‘Rock With You’.”
Dopey’s routine makes use of two Technics turntables along with a Native Instruments Z2 mixer, and Maschine controller.
