DJ Yo! Mafia
DJ available for hire, based in Victoria
A renowned sneaker freak and hip hop junkie, M.A.F.I.A. has been killing them on the wheels of steel for over 10 years.
Having grown up at the fruition of Hip Hop in the late ‘70s/early ‘80s, M.A.F.I.A. became FLUORO BREAKER after falling in love with Boogaloo Shrimp in Breakin’. After winning every B-Girl competition she entered, M.A.F.I.A. hung up her knee spin for the turntables after amassing a huge collection of original pressing Hip Hop 12”s. A celebrity in her own mind, M.A.F.I.A. is the go-to dj to get any party started, favouring the jiggy sounds of floorfillers after hanging up her backpack styles of the underground.
Perhaps Melbourne’s hardest working female Hip Hop DJ, she has supported and toured with Missy Elliott, Mixmaster Mike, De La Soul, Lady Gaga, Lupe Fiasco, DJ Craze, Dead Prez, Rahzel, DJ JS-1, DJ Platurn, Arabian Prince, Spinderella, Ghostface Killah, Dizzee Rascal, Snoop Dogg, Vanilla Ice, Spank Rock, Kid Cudi, A-Trak, CSS, Coolio, Girl Talk, Chromeo, Felix Da Housecat, South Rakkas Crew, Catchdubs, DJ Ayres, N.E.R.D, Grandmaster Flash, Tittsworth, DJ Spinbad, Russell Peters, Schwayze, to name but a few! A regular on the festival circuit (Big Day Out 2006-2010, Summadazye, Future Music Festival 2009, Golden Plains, Meredith, Sounds Loud, Sounds Safari, Push Over) and a self-promotional machine, M.A.F.I.A. prides herself on playing to diverse crowds poppin’ out hip hop/rnb/booty bass/bmore/cock rock/pop and everything in between.
If you want to sweat til ya drop, then M.A.F.I.A. is the DJ for you! Having just returned from an international DJ tour of the USA where she spun in Atlanta, New York and LA, M.A.F.I.A. is about to have big tings poppin off for 2011. Stay tuned for another tour announcement soon!
