Not just anyone can make an album featuring Pharrell Williams, Diplo, RyX, Usher and David Guetta. But Nkosinathi Maphumulo, known to every nightclub in the world - especially the most exclusive ones - as Black Coffee, has. ‘Subconsciously’
was released in 2021 and won him the Grammy for Best Dance/Electronic Album in early 2022. But Black Coffee's pedigree dates back much further. His loyalty to the percussive sounds of his native South Africa distinguishes him from other great DJs: not melodic techno, nor Afrohouse, nor amapiano, but all at once. Years of playing over 150 gigs a year and longtime prestigious residencies in Ibiza and Las Vegas have made him one of the most acclaimed figures of modern electronic music. Sónar by Day will bear witness to his magic.
