We were pretty proud to be early jumpers on the bandwagon of South African House Music – aside from reviews poking at the genuinely innovative sounds of Soulful House emerging from the country, we featured the first (identifiable) international superstar from the scene, Black Coffee, on the cover of a 2009 issue of 5 Magazine.

And while we’re at it, here is a video 5 Magazine’s Czarina Mirani made during Black Coffee’s first visit to Chicago in May 2010.
