“Recreating one of my tracks using only vocals has given me the chance to really push the boundaries, something I love to do.” 

For our next global #StayTrue Story we travelled to Johannesburg to hook up with Africa’s leading DJ and producers Black Coffee to discover his personal Stay True story, and see him undertake a unique musical experiment as he leads a 40 strong group of Africa’s finest vocalists in ‘Black Coffee’s Human Orchestra’, recreating one of his biggest tracks ‘Rock My World’ (featuring Soulstar) using only the power of 40 human voices and a real #StayTrue mentality.

Born in Durban and now living in bustling Johannesburg, Black Coffee has been involved in music since the age of two. Since then he has gone on to become one of the biggest DJ/producers from Africa, playing all over the world and all whilst pushing his desire for musical experimentation in everything he does.

Rumoured to have the blue-prints for Krang's TechnoDrome, stolen straight from Dimension X, he’s the type of guy who exudes so much coolness that he adds whole countries on Facebook at one time instead of just people. Always up for a party and a Tequila shot or two this is the guy who we always call first, both before and after a night out…
