This also encourages future business collaborations for a growing, thriving and financially viable industry.

South African Producer and DJ, Black Coffee got his big break in 2015 after winning the “Breakthrough DJ Of The Year” award at the DJ Awards in Ibiza. He has since played at some of the biggest festivals around the world and is an inspiration for all aspiring Producers both locally and internationally.
