Black Coffee Headlining Blue Marlin Ibiza UAE This Weekend

South Africa’s eminent record producer and DJ Black Coffee is playing at Ghantoot’s party destination, Blue Marlin Ibiza UAE this Friday, 28th September.

Black Coffee, most prominent South African House DJ

Having performed across music festivals and tours since the mid-’90s, Black Coffee is known as “South Africa’s foremost electronic music artist.” Some of his biggest gigs include Tomorrowland, Coachella, Ultra Music Festival in Miami and so on. In DJMag’s Top 100 DJ rankings, he currently ranks 85th, ahead of the likes of Disclosure and Dillon Francis.

Collaborations with Drake and David Guetta

Besides gigs, the famed South African DJ has assimilated into pop culture producing with the likes of Drake, Alicia Keys and David Guetta. He says working with Drake for the album ‘More Life’ started off as “the strangest thing” to him and didn’t expect he’d “get that kind of love from Drake.” Whereas, he collaborated with Alicia Keys in 2016 for ‘In Common’ and his most recent collaboration was with David Guetta for the song, ‘Drive.’

Supporting act by Themba

Fellow countryman DJ Themba, popularly known as Euphonik will be supporting. He recently won ‘Best New Comer’ at the 2018 DJ Awards and has been a rising star in the DJ scene lately. His gig at Blue Marlin will mark his UAE debut, while Black Coffee is a regular in the country, performing at BASE Dubai last March.

Reservations recommended

Partygoers can enter the gig for free, but Blue Marlin recommends reservations as the party season has just begun and it’s only been a week since the beach club opened its doors. For bookings, you can contact via phone at 056 113 3400 or via social media here. An exciting party season awaits!
