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”.

A cosmic collision of ancient tradition and forward-thinking electronic music heralded the birth of Day Zero on the final day of the Mayan Calendar in 2012. The result has been six sessions of sonic wonder and a convergence of party-people from every corner of the globe around the scion of Damian Lazarus. Deep within the mystical jungle of Tulum, this community of ritualistic nomads gathers before some of the world’s most exciting selectors and live acts for an eighteen hour journey.
The Day Zero experience hangs on the pillars of immersion and cultural connectivity, sharing space between the ancient world and modern mankind. From sunset to sunrise, each moment is woven within the fabric of the venue’s energy, bubbling up from its caves and cenotes into its naturally formed amphitheatre. This connection with surroundings and self is what’s helped create the ideal environment for experiencing the world’s best electronic music.
This essential link with the natural world and local community has shepherded Day Zero’s commitment to fostering an environmental sustainability program that will ensure the event’s continued return to the ancient land. The Day Zero team is dedicated to this process and enlists industry professionals whose sole purpose is to leave the venue cleaner than they found it and free of dangerous pollutants.
Day Zero returns to Tulum on January 10th after its September 27th debut at the world-heritage site of Masada in Israel. The ongoing evolution of the event’s story is why Day Zero is revered as the epitome of modern rave, offering its global community a path towards transcendental awakening — wherever it may land.

Famous Russian dentist.
Producer, occasional vocalist, and DJ Nina Kraviz hails from Irkutsk, Siberia. Kraviz fell under the spell of house music during the mid-'90s through radio. A few years later, she moved to Moscow for the sake of studying dentistry, and was briefly part of a trio called MySpaceRocket.
The group released one 12", 2007's "Amok," a lean house track with a deep bassline and Kraviz's breathy vocals; the B-side featured a version from U.K. DJ legend Greg Wilson. Kraviz subsequently went solo and made a splash in 2009, when she issued productions on Efdemin's Naïf, Jus-Ed's Underground Quality, and Matt Edwards' Rekids. The following year, Kraviz issued another handful of singles, including a sound clash with Sascha Funke that appeared on BPitch Control.
"Ghetto Kraviz" was her lone 2011 single and set up the release of her first album, a self-titled set for REKIDS. "Ghetto Kraviz" would prove to be an enduring club track, and was remixed numerous times throughout the decade. Following additional singles on Rekids and Rosa, as well as the Mr. Jones EP in 2013, Kraviz founded the Trip label in 2014. Her installment of !K7's DJ-Kicks series was released in early 2015. Another mix CD, Fabric 91, followed in late 2016.

Solomun plays a major role in redefining European house music with productions, remixes and DJing by taking the very building blocks of House and deftly reconstructing them with a modern twist.
After Solomun was born in Travnik, Yugoslavia , he moved to Hamburg with his family, where he grew up. As a young boy, he worked for his father in construction. Eventually, he discovered that he really enjoyed filmmaking. He founded a small production company with a few friends, where they created short films together. He worked in film for about five years before discovering that music was his passion.
Eric Estornel, better known by his stage names Maceo Plex, Maetrik and Mariel Ito, is a Cuban-American DJ, techno music producer and DJ Awards winner, raised in Dallas and Miami.

Tale Of Us is the new unique Berlin based sound scape project of Carmine Conte & Matteo Milleri.
This tale dawns in Milan, where Karm and Matteo met at a very young age. The Lombardic capital will turn out to be the preface of their success story as they now reside in Berlin, their inspirational verge.
Born in Toronto, Karm moved to Italy when he was just a child. It was at the tender age of ten when his parents took him to a classical concert that he felt “true love at first sight.” He dreamed of becoming a pianist but eventually settled for law school. Matteo left New York when he was just a year old and spent his late teens booking techno artists for his loft parties. After Karm quit law school, the pair met while studying music production at the SAE Institute. There, they bonded over a mutual love for music and discovered their complementary talents, thus marking the origin of Tale Of Us.
The aforementioned can only be crafted by soaking up inspiration in art, music, literature and cinema. These influences range from Nils Frahm, Max Richter and Ludovico Einaudi to the sheer bubbliness and truly original crossover production of ‘How Much Are They?’ by Jah Wobble, Jaki Liebezeit and Holger Czukay. Other all-time favourites include Italian jazz singer Paolo Conte, Evigt Marker & the Cinematic Orchestra.

Tale Of Us' ever-changing sound has resulted in numerous invitations from some of the finest labels in the world. They made their 2011 debut on the Detroit-based label Visionquest. After that came Richie Hawtin’s M_nus imprint and the legendary Belgian label R&S.
2010 marked the birth of Life & Death and in just a few years, together with some friends from Italy, they transformed the label into an anthology of its own at an unseen pace. Very quickly, Tale Of Us became the driving force behind the label, attracting a myriad of talents such as Mind Against, Recondite, Steve Rachmad, Vaal and many others. The tie-in label parties at DC10 Ibiza very quickly made it into the hearts and minds of clubbers. Of their own accord, Karm and Matteo truly shook the vibrant Balearic isle to its core.
Instances peak and perspective comes in good time.
So incepted Afterlife: An odyssey through the realm of consciousness.
Launched mid-June of 2016 at Barcelona’s outdoor Plaza Mayor de el Poble Espanyol, this date proved to be a perfect foreword to their 13-week Thursday residency at Space Ibiza. Through meticulous musical curation and a more experimental, concert-like approach, Afterlife sonically revived Ibiza. Characterised by mesmerising soundscapes and lush rhythms, both critics and club-culture as a whole went wild over lineups including Recondite, Nina Kraviz, Dixon, Ame, Mind Against, Vaal, Mano Le Tough and many more.
A 10-piece compilation followed soon, launching the label. The records have orbited the same goal as the events; moving the crowd into another dimension of musical perception with enthralling production. As well as a follow up Realm Of Consciousness compilation (including tracks from Woo York, Mathew Jonson and Hunter/Game), Afterlife Recordings has released EPs from Vaal, Mind Against & Aether and Patrice Bäumel.
Now, Afterlife is going global, with further events so far taking place in Amsterdam, Bucharest, London, Miami and Tulum.

It was only a matter of time before Tale Of Us broke free from the mould of dance music. Enter Endless, their album released via Deutsche Grammophon in March 2017, a profound and beautiful ambient/classical LP. It liberated them to express their roots in piano composition and Eno-esque atmospherics, not what most people know Tale Of Us for, but their most complete and honest statement yet. A sign of things to come.
With multifaceted focus, Tale Of Us break poetic and emotional boundaries, bringing revery and awe to multiple scenes and levels, usually hemispheres away. Watch as this tale grows and flourishes.
