Event description

Description

The​ ​small​ ​town​ ​of​ ​Cambridge,​ ​New​ ​Zealand​ ​is​ ​an​ ​unlikely​ ​place​ ​to​ ​call​ ​home​ ​for​ ​a​ ​revolutionary​ ​rapper,​ ​but​ ​the​ ​story​ ​and​ ​values​ ​of Diaz​ ​Grimm​ ​are​ ​unusual​ ​in​ ​the​ ​most​ ​honest​ ​way.

Beginning as a DJ in the local Hamilton scene, Diaz combines energetic DJ sets with his own original music to create a boombastic one man stage show.

In​ ​2015,​ ​Diaz​ ​Grimm​ ​released​ ​his​ ​debut​ ​album​ ​'Osiris',​ ​a​ ​soundtrack​ ​to​ ​the​ ​end​ ​of​ ​the​ ​world.​ ​A​ ​post-apocalyptic​ ​sonic​ ​journey​ ​that resonated​ ​with​ ​audiences​ ​and​ ​critics​ ​alike,​ ​the​ ​success​ ​of​ ​Osiris​ ​saw​ ​Diaz​ ​nominated​ ​for​ ​Best​ ​Urban/Hip-Hop​ ​Album​ ​at​ ​the​ ​New Zealand​ ​Music​ ​Awards​ ​that​ ​year.​ ​The​ ​album​ ​topped​ ​the​ ​NZ​ ​iTunes​ ​hiphop​ ​charts,​ ​reached​ ​the​ ​official​ ​NZ​ ​Top​ ​20​ ​album​ ​charts​ ​and became​ ​the​ ​most​ ​upvoted​ ​self-posted​ ​album​ ​in​ ​the​ ​history​ ​of​ ​the​ ​Reddit/hiphopheads​ ​forum.​ ​Following​ ​the​ ​success​ ​of​ ​the​ ​album Diaz​ ​was​ ​invited​ ​to​ ​go​ ​on​ ​a​ ​ten​ ​show​ ​nationwide​ ​tour​ ​with​ ​local​ ​superstars​ ​Six60​ ​and​ ​then​ ​in​ ​2016​ ​became​ ​the​ ​first​ ​self-managed, unsigned​ ​artist​ ​from​ ​New​ ​Zealand​ ​to​ ​ever​ ​be​ ​invited​ ​to​ ​play​ ​SXSW.

Diaz​​ ​made​ ​it​ ​to​ ​Austin,​ ​Texas​ ​for​ ​SXSW2016​ ​where​ ​he​ ​began​ ​a​ ​three month​ ​journey​ ​alone​ ​around​ ​America​ ​hoping​ ​to​ ​build​ ​his​ ​knowledge​ ​and​ ​network​ ​in​ ​the​ ​music​ ​industry.​ ​During​ ​the​ ​trip,​ ​Grimm​ ​met the​ ​likes​ ​of​ ​Chance​ ​The​ ​Rapper,​ ​A$AP​ ​Rocky,​ ​Alan​ ​Kingdom​ ​and​ ​was​ ​invited​ ​to​ ​meet​ ​with​ ​major​ ​hiphop​ ​blog,​ ​HotNewHipHop.

Diaz​ ​recently​ ​worked​ ​on​ ​his​ ​latest​ ​single​ ​‘Foreigners’​ ​with​ ​Grammy​ ​award​ ​winning​ ​producer​ ​and​ ​songwriter​ ​Mike​ ​Elizondo​ ​(Prod.​ ​of Eminem’s​ ​‘Real​ ​Slim​ ​Shady’,​ ​50​ ​cent’s​ ​‘In​ ​Da​ ​Club’​ ​&​ ​The​ ​Games​ ​‘How​ ​We​ ​Do’).​ ​‘Foreigners’​ ​debuted​ ​at​ ​#16​ ​on​ ​the​ ​NZ​ ​singles charts​ ​(The​ ​only​ ​unsigned,​ ​self​ ​managed​ ​artist​ ​in​ ​the​ ​charts)​ ​and​ ​became​ ​the​ ​only​ ​kiwi​ ​on​ ​the​ ​front​ ​page​ ​of​ ​the​ ​NZTop40.co.nz​ ​the week​ ​of​ ​release.

Diaz​ ​will​ ​be​ ​heading​ ​out​ ​on​ ​his​ ​last​ ​NZ​ ​tour​ ​in​ ​October​ ​this​ ​year​ ​before​ ​making​ ​the​ ​move​ ​to​ ​Toronto​ ​to​ ​set​ ​up​ ​camp​ ​late​ ​December.
