Black Coffee, uno de los DJ's más geniales de la escena surafricana
In our latest ORIGINS film, produced in partnership with SONOS, we trace the roots of Black Coffee, a South African national icon. Watch the trailer ahead of the film's October 20th release.
Según la Wikipedia:
Black Coffee (born Nkosinathi Maphumulo on 11 March 1976) is a South African multi award winningrecord producer and DJ. Black Coffee began his career back in 1994 and has released four albums and onelive DVD under his Johannesburg based record label called Soulistic Music. He is arguably one of the most influential musicians in Africa. Black Coffee got his big break shortly after being chosen as a South African participant in the 2004 Red Bull Music Academy held in Cape Town.
Según Resident Advisor:
Considering his meteoric rise to fame, it would be easy to stereotype Black Coffee as just another black diamond, a BEE beat magnet out to mine the insatiable upwardly mobile urban house-party market. But as he proved on his South African Music Award-winning album Home Brewed, this DJ and producer defies convention. Sidestepping Afro-house clichés and stage-managed highs in favour of restrained sophistication, Black Coffee’s penchant is for true Afropolitan house: home-brewed but trendsetting, fashion-conscious and future-focused. Expect almost sculptural balance and beauty.
