ÂME and Black Coffee at Blue Marlin Ibiza UAE
Take note of the following… On Friday April 8th 2016, Âme and Black Coffee are going to thrill our decks. We can’t wait to witness those geniuses at work.
Get yourself sun-kissed on our beach whilst enjoying the best Balearic beats. Let down your inhibitions with a cocktail in one hand and a sushi filled pair of chopsticks in the other. Make your way to our restaurant and enjoy the finest Mediterranean dishes. Then dance into the night on the Blue Marlin Ibiza UAE terrace.
Kristian Beyer is Dj of Detroit-influenced house duo Âme. Âme is part of Innervisions, the collective/label they run with Dixon.
Âme splintered their established sound and found a more nimble, compositional approach that yielded their scene-conquering single, “Rej.” Not given to fulfilling trends, their sets draw upon the whole of dance music’s history and keep them in great demand around the world.
Artist and DJ, Black Coffee, who celebrates his ten year anniversary in the music industry this year, has just had his new album, Pieces Of Me, go platinum in his native South Africa just six weeks after its release! Born Nkosthi Maphumulo, Black Coffee released his self-titled debut album in 2005, with Pieces Of Me being his sixth studio release. But as proved on his SAMA award-winning album “Home Brewed”, this DJ and producer defies convention.
