AWARD WINNING INTERNATIONAL DJ, BLACK COFFEE, SIGNS HIS FIRST SOUTH AFRICAN RESIDENCY FOR SUMMER 2016
Shimmy Beach Club is thrilled to announce a new resident DJ for Friday nights throughout the 2016 summer season. Multi-award winning DJ and Producer, Black Coffee, will be hitting the decks live at Shimmy Beach Club, starting on Friday, 09 December 2016. Arguably the most prominent house music producer in Africa, Durban born Nkosinathi Maphumulo, known as Black Coffee, has released five albums under his record label, Soulistic Music. He was awarded a BET award for Best International Act In Africa this year. In 20017 he became a household name in the SA DJ scene, firing up floors with his tribally infectious, vocal-laced beats.
Additionally, he recently won 4 awards at the South African Music Awards (SAMA) including Album of the Year, Best Dance Album, Best Engineered Album and the International Achievement Award. In 2015 he was also awarded ‘Breakthrough DJ of the Year” in Ibiza and has been nominated again this year in the ‘Deep House” category for the 2016 DJ Awards. Black Coffee’s penchant for true Afropolitan house: home-brewed but fresh and future-focused. The global superstar believes that the use of live instruments in a song is very important, as it brings the track to life.
SUBMERGED SUNDAYS will once again be headlined by GOLDFISH, who will be supported by a host of internationally acclaimed artists from around the world.
