Hector’s House are excited to welcome Black Coffee to Edinburgh for his debut appearance, headlining their Festival closing party on August 27th.
Their previous festival closers with their Glaswegian friends, BLK29, have been two of their biggest parties in their 5+ year history. Both involved extended sets from one of the world’s finest party-starters, Jackmaster, and both were unique in their own way: 2015 for the infamous power cut (due to the pop-up nature of the space at the time); and last year the impromptu B2B with Elliot Adamson, the first time the pair had played together.
True pioneer, leading light of South Africa and one of the most exciting DJs in the word Nkosinathi Maphumulo aka Black Coffee will make his Edinburgh debut on on August 27th.
Black Coffee won Best International Artist 2016 and Breakthrough DJ Of The Year at DJ of The Year Awards 2015 in Ibiza. He has performed in some of the hottest venues and is one of the most spirited contributors to the global music scene, winining a SAMA (South African Music Association) Award for his album “Home Brewed” and featuring on Drake’s hit “Get It Together” which later played at Beyonce’s wedding anniversary.
The star built his profile globally, previously playing some of the biggest festivals in the world such as Cape Town Electronic Music Festival, Hi Ibiza, Molos On The Beach, Southport Weekender, ADE and Watergate Berlin.
As one of the most vibrant contributors to the global music scene, Black Coffee has garnered a worldwide following and is currently one of the most in-demand DJs on the planet…..think ADE, DC10, Sonar, Watergate, RBMA tours (he’s a former academy student), Panorama Bar, and his current weekly Saturday night residency at Hï Ibiza.
Due to the success of the past two years at the 600 capacity basement on Frederick Street, Hectors House are excited that Bourbon are, once again, hosting their festival closer. The venue has one of the best sound and lighting systems in the capital and they can’t wait to see the inevitable scenes when Black Coffee takes to the booth!
Maphumulo is known for producing and playing house music that is ‘unique and beautiful’, dripping with soul, so expect to hear his Afropolitan house sound in person. Similar to 2015 and 2016 the festival closing party is on the final Sunday of the month (27th August), and in line with previous years, tickets are priced from just £5. The full three-roomed support line-up will be announced shortly.
