South African DJ and producer Black Coffee is riding the crest of a wave right now. From humble beginnings in South Africa’s townships to headlining sold out festivals and releasing his latest big international-selling album, ‘Pieces Of Me’ on Ultra, Black Coffee’s rise has been nothing short of meteoric. 

As a follow-up to the success of his debut album, the famous South African export kicked off his first-ever island residency at Hï Ibiza — the new superclub with its name on everyone’s lips — earlier this year to widespread acclaim. Black Coffee used his residency as a launchpad for fellow South African artists, inviting acts like Black Motion, Culoe de Song, Da Capo, Hyenah and more to join him throughout the season. 

 He's also incredibly philanthropic, devoting his time, funds and considerable influence to a range of social enterprises in his homeland. One such project is a new school called FAM (Fashion, Art and Music) based in inner city Johannesburg, which he's currently in the process of setting up. He also regularly visits local schools and colleges to meet and inspire South Africa's next generation — in short, Black Coffee is a DJ with a whole 'lotta heart.
