The first time I heard of DJ Black Coffee, I was at the New Parish in Oakland, CA at a July 15, 2011 show with OM DJ Marques Wyatt. I thought Marques was the main act, but I was pleasantly surprised when Marques opened for DJ Black Coffee. Ever since then, I have been looking for a really good mix to present on Mode.Radio and I think this is it.
Based in South Africa, Black Coffee (real name: Nkosinathi Maphumulo) has been a rising star in the deep house music scene, producing tracks and dropping great mixes.What makes his DJ style so unique is that Black Coffee is disabled. He lost his hand when he was young. So when you are watching him DJ 3 turntables, cutting rhythms, and hitting deep soulful drops, with one arm, you can't help but to be amazed. You can check out his original productions and other mixes on his Soundcloud. Enjoy!
