Earlier this week, House fans were pleasantly surprised to see South Africa’s most prominent DJ, Black Coffee, among the list of guest contributors on Drake’s newest release More Life.
On track 5 of the album titled “Get It Together“, Black Coffee has woven a syncopated and sultry groove that UK singer Jorja Smith and Drake harmoniously perform over.
The original production, 2010’s “Superman”, has very few differences with the new version. The primary difference is that the original version features the vocal talents of Brucie, where as in this new version there is the addition of Drake’s vocals and Jorja Smith’s vocals. As an ode to good taste, the original beat which was taken by Drake is almost wholly unchanged.
To say the least, it was unexpected to come across this track, but exciting at the same time. This song is exceptionally well done. Drake’s vocals are extremely fitting with Black Coffee’s unique production style. This is definitely a direction we would love to see him take more often.
Check out this mix from Black Coffee and enjoy his unique performance style!
