Black Coffee (born Nkosinathi Maphumulo on 11 March 1976) is a South African record producer and a Disc Jockey. He began his career around 1995 and has released five albums and a Live DVD under his Johannesburg-based record label – Soulistic Music. He is arguably the most prominent electronic music producer in Africa.
Black Coffee joins Madam X, Octopizzo and more in showcasing the Global Dancefloor. Global Dancefloor is a new documentary series created by the electronic music forces of Mixmag and Smirnoff, which sets out to explore the most riveting dance music cultures around the world. The series consists of 9 episodes, each honing in on a different country where viewers are guided by local champions presenting an in-depth look at the sparkling music communities.
All the various cultures have one thing in common; that they are rooted in inclusivity and have a robust impact on the global music scene. The series focuses on the “lesser known” countries that have been under the radar yet infiltrating every crevice of the global music industry.
Mixmag will release a new Global Dancefloor episode per week, which started on the 1st May 2018 with Kenya’s NuNairobi movement, hosted by Octopizzo.
The series will continue with episodes on “South Africa’s afro house scene, Angola’s innovative Kuduro genre, the vibrant party culture in Nigeria, the underground community in Beirut, high energy dance music in India, female techno talent taking over Thailand and a spotlight on the leading music collective in Jakarta,” as said by Mixmag.
