Diafrix is an Australian hip hop duo originating from Footscray, Melbourne. Their music mixes funk, soul, reggae and dancehall.[1]

Biography[edit]

Azmarino met in Footscray at the community art center hosted by Joelistics from TZU. Joelistics suggested that MoMO and Azmarino form a band, and they took his advice and formed Diafrix.[2]

Diafrix has opened for such acts as Bliss n Eso,[3] as well as international acts such as Macklemore and Ryan Lewis. Their song "Running It" was adopted as the official theme tune for the Western Bulldogs for 2013.[4] Their music has been referred to as "anthemic" for the multicultural area they grew up in.[5]

Specific influences on their music are diverse, ranging from Nas to Bob Marley to Fat Freddy’s Drop.[6]

Momo was born in the Comoros Islands and Azmarino was born in Eritrea.[7]
