A renowned sneaker freak and hip hop junkie, YO! MAFIA has been killing them on the wheels of steel for over 15 years. Having grown up at the fruition of Hip Hop in the late ‘70s/early ‘80s, YO! MAFIA became FLUORO BREAKER after falling in love with Boogaloo Shrimp in Breakin’. After winning every B-Girl competition she entered, YO! MAFIA hung up her knee spin for the turntables after amassing a huge collection of original pressing 12-inch wax from every musical genre known to man. Relying on her acute party savvy ears, YO! MAFIA quickly began mashing up sounds from her beloved Hip Hop, mixing in RNB, electro, Commercial Bangers, Cock Rock and everything in between. She has solidified her place as one of Australia’s premier Open Format DJs, possessing an incredible ability to blend and mix a variety of genres into one big party set! Her signature genre-smashing sets have seen her tour and DJ support a wide range of A-List artists –

Stevie Wonder, Missy Elliott, Lady Gaga, DJ Jazzy Jeff, Salt’n’Pepa, Pharrell Williams, Big Freedia, DJ Shadow, Cut Chemist, Ca$h Money, Iggy Azalea, Tinie Tempah, TWISTA, Die Antwoord, Clipse, De La Soul, Kurtis Blow, T-Pain, Ice Cube, Waka Flocka Flame, , Lupe Fiasco, DJ Craze, 100s, A$AP Ferg, Dead Prez, MYA, , Dirty South Joe, J.Period, Rahzel, Arabian Prince, Spinderella, DJ Quik, Kurupt, Ghostface Killah, Mixmaster Mike, Twista, Dizzee Rascal, Snoop Dogg, Vanilla Ice, Spank Rock, Kid Cudi, A-Trak, CSS, Coolio, The Presets, Girl Talk, Chromeo, Felix Da Housecat, South Rakkas Crew, N.E.R.D, Grandmaster Flash, Tittsworth, DJ Spinbad, Russell Peters, Schwayze, Scratch Bastid, Starting From Scratch, Action Bronson, Color Me Badd, Soul For Real, Jon B and Aloe Blacc to name but a few!

2015 has started with a massive bang, thanks to a massive headline sold out show in Perth, and touring with Big Freedia (Queen Of Bounce) at the infamous Falls Festival shows. YO! MAFIA was hand chosen to perform for tennis legend BORIS BECKER at the recent re-launch of his 1985 winning tennis show with the PUMA brand as well as securing a recurring DJ slot for GEORGE CALOMBARIS’ infamous staff party events. YO! MAFIA will also be returning to headline MARDI GRAS in Sydney for 2015 after a smash sell-out at the 2014 event. Proving she’s got the skills to pay the bills, YO! MAFIA has been selected to play a VINYL ONLY set to open for DJ turntabilist extraordinaires DJ Shadow and Cut Chemist on their world renowned “Renegades Of Rhythm” tour, playing founding father of Hip Hop, Afrika Bambaataa’s record collection. Add to that, corporate bookings for Ch 10’s Neighbours 30th Anniversary Party and the Ch 10 Logies afterparty, the first half of 2015 is quickly booking out, so now is your chance to secure YO! MAFIA at your next event!

Locking in headline gigs next to Australian dance legends THE PRESETS, as well as SALT ‘N PEPA, DJ JAZZY JEFF and DJn for NYC MC CAKES DA KILLA, it has certainly been a stand out year for the International Party DJ. Rolling out a plethora of high profile events for blue chip companies such as UNIQLO AUS, CH 10 LOGIES, ASICS, G-SHOCK, NIKE, CAULFIELD CUP, MELBOURNE CUP, OAKLEY, REEBOK and more, 2014 has taken YO! MAFIA to the next level. Stay tuned for a HUGE announcement in 2015, as YO! MAFIA signs her first record deal with one of the world’s best record labels, releasing her very first OFFICIAL mixtape. 2015 is about to be the biggest takeover year for the INTERNATIONAL PARTY DJ!

MAFIA secured DJ supports for Iggy Azalea, Waka Flocka Flame, Mixmaster Mike and Twista as well as headlining her own show at Bali’s infamous LOVE IN TENTS events, not to mention a slew of high profile corporate events, such as Channel 10’s Summer Viewing Launch and G-Shock’s Eminem x New Era launch.

Those with a keen eye may also have seen YO! MAFIA working the tricycle turntable bike on ABC’s SPICKS AND SPECKS on four separate occasions throughout the series’ run as a recurring guest DJ spot. YO! MAFIA was also invited to DJ at the opening of Sydney’s new Star Casino in late 2011 alongside special guest performer Stevie Wonder and actors Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire and Adrian Grenier. There truly ain’t no stopping this lil’ powerhouse!

Working with corporate powerhouses such as Ch10, Dg3, MTV, Nike, Nova, adidas, Reebok, G-Shock, Oakley, Upfront Events, Create Awards, Harvey Publicity, Lee Jeans, Sol Beer, YO!
