Black Coffee said: "So exciting to see Sensorium is leveraging the power of music and technology to bring people together. While the pandemic brought a divide in unity physically, a platform like this can reunite those connections whilst removing the physical limitations of the real world. I'm so excited to be a part of this exciting journey into the VR world."

Sasha Tityanko, Art Director at Sensorium Corporation, said: “By performing in PRISM, Black Coffee will be able to establish deeper connections with his global audience. This collaboration will equally support the creativity of Black Coffee as a producer, giving him the tools and the opportunity to create shows that aren’t subjected to the rules of the real world.”
