This Saturday night 633 Ann launches from what was the Mustang Bar. Headed north for the celebrations is Melbourne hip hop duo, Diafrix. MC Azmarino gives us the freshness.
The summer so far for Diafrix; what’s been happening?
It’s been an awesome summer so far. We have been touring and playing at some great festivals that we haven't played before, like Rainbow Serpent, Homebake, Queenscliff and ‘bout to play at Bleach Festival; we’re looking forward to that.
You guys are headed to Queensland three times in February; when are you guys relocating permanently to the Sunshine State?
Maybe not appropriate after what happened over the weekend, but I would love to live in Brissie one day, but they have to step up their coffee game before I do.
You’ll be in Brisbane to headline the launch of 633 Ann — anything extra special planned?
We are bringing Melbourne chief rocker DJ Kayz with us; we’re looking forward to this gig. We will turn it up to proper.
Are you guys still in shock that you’ll be supporting Macklemore & Ryan Lewis next month when they tour?
Yes! We were very stoked to have scored the Macklemore and Ryan Lewis support... I mean they are great artists and I was really happy that they picked us for their east coast run ‘cause I’m sure lots of hip hop acts put their hands up for it. I also hope will get the chance to meet them and have a chat ‘bout Air Jordans.
Overseas tours; you’ve travelled before; are you looking at further international shows this year?
I will definitely be heading to Africa this coming winter because I can't stand the cold Melbourne weather anymore!
This time next year; if everything goes according to plan, where do you want to be positioned?
I hope that we would be at a better place and position than where we are today — don't matter if it’s a big change or small, as long as it’s positive.
Away from the stage, what do you guys enjoy?
Momo likes to ride motor bike and I enjoy a good BBQ.
Diafrix, with support from Deux, Roman and Cutloose play the 633 Ann launch party Saturday February 2.
