New Black Cof­fee al­bum in the works

CityPress - - News -

House DJ and record pro­ducer Black Cof­fee isn’t go­ing to slow down any­time soon.

The sought-af­ter DJ is in the coun­try this week, and al­though he’s off his tour for a bit, he had a packed sched­ule. How­ever, he did find a few mo­ments to chat to City Press.

“I am work­ing on the fol­low-up to Pieces of Me [which is about 10 months old] … Ini­tially, we had planned to rere­lease it, but my trips to Europe and the UK made me re­alise what ap­peals to the mar­kets we wanted to rere­lease Pieces of Me for. So we de­cided to make some­thing that ap­peals to the mar­ket rather than as­sume that Pieces of Me was it…”

The yet-to-be-named al­bum will be re­leased in the US mar­ket first, and then in Europe and Africa.

When Black Cof­fee leaves later to­day, he’s back on the road with his highly suc­cess­ful tour, and then he’ll move back to South Africa in Au­gust, where he will con­tinue gig­ging.

Next week, he will be at the BET Awards in Los An­ge­les, where he’s up for a Best In­ter­na­tional Act: Africa Award.

He is cur­rently based in California, where he says he’s also do­ing some great work on the pro­duc­tion side of things.

“I want to sep­a­rate Black Cof­fee the House DJ and Black Cof­fee the pro­ducer be­cause with my pro­duc­tion I don’t want to be lim­ited to House or even just mu­sic for the ra­dio or the club. So, we are work­ing on that. House mu­sic is still my cho­sen art form, but I also want to go be­yond it.”
