We're in absolute awe of DJ Black Coffee's ability to continue breaking boundaries in the music industry.

Twitter was set ablaze last night by the release of his latest collaboration with Ballantine's Orchestra. At first we couldn't understand what all the hype was about, but after watching it we were left with goosebumps.

Black Coffee uses the human orchestra to re-create one of his tracks using just vocals and no musical instruments at all!

"From the beginning it's always been about the music, South Africa is such a musical place, because of our past our people used to live in song,whether they were crying or celebrating it was the music that kept them going," he said.

Black Coffee explained that his music is a mixture of his own upbringing. "I've never been pressured to followed any trends, very few people have the luck and the blessing to be bold and I believe I'm one of them. I want to inspire can do it, just do it your way," he added.

The DJ and music producer explains that he loves pushing boundaries and this gave him the chance to do just that. "Recreating one of my tracks using only vocals has given me the chance to really push the boundaries, something I love to do."
