Iconic South African DJ and dance music producer Black Coffee is teaming up with Moroccan filmmaker Hicham Hajji for an upcoming film set in the world of EDM.

Black Coffee is an executive producer on the movie, God Is A DJ, which will focus on a Jewish man and Moroccan imam who team up as a masked DJ duo. Although they have their suspicions of each other, they must overcome them to take on their local nightclub circuit.

"With a minority driven cast, the film aims to bring this niche music to the world through the minorities that understand it," Hajji told Deadline.
