Black Coffee reflects about music divisions on Instagram
It is common knowledge that electronic music is very diverse, with diverse genres, for all types and tastes, but how healthy is it for the music industry? How far is this musical segregation advantageous for artists and especially for the public that consumes and moves the scene? It was thinking about this whole separation that Black Coffee blew it out on his Instagram. In a short 1 minute video, Black Coffee, who made a brilliant performance at Tomorrowland recently, reflects on this whole division that is part of today’s electronic music. He says he doesn’t like it and that splitting this rich genre just to create barriers between artists and the setting itself is not the smart thing to do.
