Award winning Lebanese Australian DJ, radio presenter and event curator, MzRizk is a

self-taught, community emboldened, creative chameleon who has garnered widespread acclaim as one of Melbourne’s most respected house, jazz, soul, disco, hip-hop, and Arabic music savant. She was awarded Best DJ 2022 at the Music Victoria Awards.


A truly prolific selector, MzRizk presents her renowned community radio show Boogie Beat Suite on PBS 106.7FM and has over two decades of worldwide DJing under her belt including multiple sets at Glastonbury (UK) and performances across Beirut (Lebanon), New York (USA), Lahore (Pakistan), Tilburg (Netherlands), and Tisno (Croatia). Internationally acclaimed acts like Fatboy Slim, Jill Scott, Maxwell, MF Doom (RIP), Badbadnotgood, The Internet, Evelyn Champagne King, DJ Jazzy Jeff, Natasha Diggs, Moses Sumney, Osunlade, Alsarah & The Nubatones, Public Enemy, and Snarky Puppy are common place amongst the hugely expansive list of artists MzRizk has opened for.


Back home, her devoted Australian fans have followed Rizky’s DJ journey from Big Day Out Boiler Room (2012) to Sugar Mountain (2018), plus standout festival slots at Splendour In The Grass with Sampa The Great (2017), Golden Plains (2018), Laneway Festival (2019, 2020), A Festival Called Panama (2020), Strawberry Fields (2022) and more. In 2020, MzRizk was chosen to curate the coveted City of Melbourne NYE fireworks soundtrack after DJing the event for over five years.


MzRizk thrives on leading collaborative work that bridges the gap between music, culture, art, fashion, and film. Spearheading ongoing projects and community-focussed events such as Rizky's Block Party, Habibi Hafla – Middle Eastern Music Party, Hip Hop High Tea and HALO Vocal Ensemble has catapulted MzRizk to the epicentre of Melbourne’s rich and diverse cultural conglomerate. It is from this exact vantage point, that Rizky draws organic and enduring connections with multidisciplinary industry leaders into her orbit. These connections have seen MzRizk being booked for over five years straight to DJ the City of Melbourne’s NYE celebrations and curate their coveted fireworks soundtrack in 2020, as well as design the sound for the Adelaide Fringe award-winning theatre show DIRT, Multicultural Arts Victoria's TAKEBACK! and The Kahlil Gibran: Garden of the Prophet Exhibition at the Immigration Museum.


In 2020 MzRizk presented and DJ’d multiple venue launch events at the opening week of the Biennale of Sydney 2020, with her sound and installation piece Ahla 2u Sahla exhibited at the National Art School and Carriageworks. An incredible milestone achievement, the three-hour celebratory journey of classic and contemporary Arabic music paid homage to Lebanon and the Lebanese hospitality she so passionately lives and breathes.


Since 2016 MzRizk has co-presented, collaborated and curated events with and for Melbourne Music Week, Melbourne International Jazz Festival, Melbourne Museum, Immigration Museum, Arts Centre Melbourne, and Always Live for Non Stop DJs.


DJ’ing most days of the week, MzRizk can be found at venues across Melbourne with regular sets at the following iconic venues; Arbory Afloat, Music Room, Revolver, Section8, QT Rooftop, Angel Music Bar, Curious at the W Hotel, and The Toff.


In her two-decade long career MzRizk has garnered widespread acclaim as Melbourne’s leading champion of underrepresented music, and one of the city’s most respected cultural connectors. Bringing people together in unity through her wildly eclectic sets is what MzRizk does best, and no matter how refined her palette, she is constantly evolving, learning, growing, shifting with the times, and being discovered by new generations of music lovers. That is the sign of a true artist.
