Considering his meteoric rise to fame, it would be easy to stereotype Black Coffee as just another black diamond, a BEE beat magnet out to mine the insatiable upwardly mobile urban house party market. But as he proved on his South African Music Award-winning album “Home Brewed”, this DJ and producer defies convention. Sidestepping Afro-house clichés and stage-managed highs in favour of restrained sophistication, Black Coffee’s penchant is for true Afropolitan house: home-brewed but fresh and future-focused. Expect almost sculptural balance and beauty.
If one heard a clamour and ululating emanating from the eastern provinces of South Africa, KwaZulu Natal and the Eastern Cape, announcing the recognition of a cultural phenomenon.. and their role in the development of this cultural phenomenon.. one could not argue were that clamour and ululating to be in respect of one.. that is the soul, spirit, talent and vision of Nkosinathi Innocent Maphumulo, one better known as “Black Coffee”.
Without further ado, Black Coffee’s top 5 tracks of all time:
5. BLACK COFFEE & NATHAN ADAMS – Afraid Of The Dark
4. Black Coffee – Wish You Were Here feat. Msaki
3. Black Coffee & David Guetta – Drive feat. Delilah Montagu

While we enjoy the different pace of this summer, Hï Ibiza dropped some awesome news for Ibiza 2021. Get ready for this. On top of returning residencies Afterlife, Black Coffee, F*** Me I’m Famous! and Glitterbox, new residents The Martinez Brothers and FISHER join the party.
Each residency will create its own unique immersive dance experience. As always, the soundtrack goes to some of the biggest international DJs on the scene. Add to that, Hï Ibiza‘s futuristic sound system and you have an experience like no other.
In the words of Yann Pissenem, founder, owner and CEO of The Night League and Hï Ibiza, “We are more determined than ever to make 2021 our best season yet, starting by announcing the craziest line up that Hï Ibiza has ever had. Ibiza 2021 – let’s go!”
We’re in. Here’s the plan:
TUESDAYS – THE MARTINEZ BROTHERS
Directly from New York, The Martinez Brothers snatch up their first headline residency at Hï Ibiza. From their start in the underground electronic music scene of the Bronx, the DJing brothers have quickly turned into house and techno royalty.
Here is what they have to say about it: “2021 will be a new chapter for the world, for the island and for ourselves personally. We are excited to be turning that page with Hï Ibiza. We know it’s going to be something very special.”
As island-favourites, The Martinez Brothers residency is set to be one of the hottest nights on the island. The duo will be joined by the most exciting names in dance music.
WEDNESDAYS – FISHER
From 16 June to 29 September 2021, the smashing FISHER picks up his own headline residency. The Australian DJ-producer made an impressive debut last summer with his massive energy and enthusiasm.
Next season will see even more world-class while he takes over the Theatre on Wednesdays, or as he put it, “Absolutely FROTHING to be cranking the vibes at Hï Ibiza next summer. Gonna be like a monkey on a banana going Fkn MAD!”
THURSDAYS – AFTERLIFE ft TALE OF US
From 24 June to 30 September, world-famous DJ and production duo Tale Of Us return with their party series Afterlife for what’s set to be a massive third season.
Once again, the party will feature an impeccable line-up with the most forward-thinking and recognised names in underground music, as well as mesmerizing soundscapes and lush rhythms designed for the senses.
Tale Of Us have said it themselves, “Hï Ibiza is an amazing home for our Afterlife Ibiza parties, where we create an immersive, audio-visual experience and invite a wide range of artists we love. The moment we stepped into the club each week of past seasons, we felt the energy from the unique crowd. We can’t wait to share fifteen special Thursdays with you all again. See you in 2021!”
FRIDAYS – F*** ME I’M FAMOUS! Ft DAVID GUETTA
From 28 May to 1 October, Monsieur Guetta’s world-favourite F*** Me I’m Famous! is back for an incredible second season. The party is famous for its astounding production, fierce dancers, feel-good atmosphere, unrivalled VIP glamour, and of course the world’s biggest DJs in the booth each week.
As usual, David Guetta will be bringing a FOMO-inducing list of the most talked-about names in electronic music to join him each week, so stay tuned for more announcements.
“Our first season of F*** Me I’m Famous! at Hï Ibiza last summer was off the scale! The energy, the vibe and the atmosphere in our new home exceeded my wildest expectations so I can’t wait to get back there next summer to party with everyone. We’ve got lots of surprises in store and a whole host of incredible DJs joining me each week as always! ”
SATURDAYS – BLACK COFFEE
Black Coffee picks up his Saturday night spot once again from 15 May to 2 October. Having been a part of the Hï Ibiza family from day one, the South African star has been instrumental in shaping the club’s success, contributing some of the most stand-out moments.
Black Coffee is synonymous with cutting edge and forward-thinking curation. On a visual level, expect a complete immersion in the tribal sophistication and spiritual splendour.
In his own words, “Unreal to be going on to our fourth season at home base, Hï Ibiza. So thankful to be a part of the growing success on the island and to be surrounded by the best artists and team in the world!”
SUNDAYS – GLITTERBOX
An absolute favourite for all ages, Glitterbox will also return for a fantastic fourth season from 16 May to 3 October. The long-standing and much-loved residency brings the world’s most respected DJs and emerging talents, showcasing pure dance music, to move your mind, body and soul.
Expect intoxicating dancers, jaw-dropping performers and drag queens – the heroes of the Justice League Of Disco – for more unforgettable moments on the dance floor.
Head honcho Simon Dunmore puts it this way: “We are extremely excited to return to Hï Ibiza in 2021. We believe people’s appetite to party is going to be at an all-time high due to the current world climate; we have progressed our line-up and Hï Ibiza have made some small but telling changes to the structure of the club, so it all bodes well for another amazing season.”
There you have it. Obviously, Hï Ibiza is determined to make up for this year by making next summer its biggest season yet. Next summer, will be a celebration of life, a season to reconnect and rekindle the dance floor with regenerative energy.
Stay tuned. More info coming soon.
