Maria Limberis aka M.A.F.I.A. has been involved in Hip Hop culture for over 25 years. For over 10 of those years, she’s been spinning a diverse selection of music ranging from ‘90s Hip Hop and Electro to Baltimore and Hyphy. Along side spinning, Mafia hosts, and runs her own nights, making her deserving of the title “Australia’s Hardest Working Lady DJ!�? as well as, Melbourne’s “go-to�? DJ to get the party started! Aside from hosting, Mafia has been on-stage support for Dizzie Rascal, Cool Kids, Girl Talk, CSS, and A-Trak, just to name a few.
Mafia is the only female to work for Sneaker Freaker Magazine and brings her own flare to the magazine and site which includes doing all the New Release sneaker reviews, interviewing anyone and everyone making waves in street culture, updating the website daily with Newsflashes and bringing new brands and people who are on the come up to worldwide recognition with interviews, reviews and stories on everything encompassing sneaker culture.
Mafia does anything and everything at SNKFRKR HQ to make sure the best sneaker magazine in the world stays at the top of the cultures go-to site and magazine for only the best in sneakers and fashion. She takes aNYthing‘s motto of “Never Not Working” into account, and is online at least 14 hours a day, hustling, researching and immersing herself in a culture she has grown up on.
Mafia’s got a few videos to share after the jump, including one where she gives a breakdown of sneaker head terms. We also re-link you to a free Mafia mix we posted about a few weeks back. Jump!
