With the upcoming release of their much anticipated debut album, Diafrix emcees Momo and Azmarino have been super busy this year.

Behind the scenes they have been even busier working with the some of the cream of Melbourneís multicultural urban music underground on two cutting edge music projects, 4DS and New Scool Rulez.

4DS has evolved out MAVís highly successful Visible project which over the past four years has been connecting, recording and showcasing unique musical talents from culturally diverse backgrounds.

With Momo aka Mohamed Komba leading the way, 4DS heralds a bright new future for world music in Victoria with songs and sounds from around the globe providing a base new music that fuses world, hip hop, funk, reggae, dub and dancehall sensibilities.

The 4DS project brings together an eclectic and extremely talented array of singers, emcees and musicians including Wansixsth, Traffikk, S.I.B, Lamine Sonko, William Kadima, Mikey Chan and many more, to create nine world class world music tracks that are bound to make you move.

Over the past two years New Scool Rulez, a project led by Azmarino aka Khaled Abdulwahab has seen many of Melbourneís freshest MC's, Breakers, Beatboxers, DJ's and Dancers scratching, ripping up and remixing the School Rules with special all ages hip hop events around Melbourne.

The debut New Scool Rulez album will continue this tradition with a selection of some rare undiscovered young talent hitting the recording studio for the first time.
