A new documentary called ‘Fully Gassed’ tells the story of how one event series managed to unite the whole Australian grime scene.

Showing archived clips of the Fully Gassed night across the years, the short film aims to tell the story of how a small, underground event turned into one of the biggest grime parties in Australia, capturing interviews with important faces in the scene including DJs, MCs and fans.

The documentary focuses largely around MC Fracture, who since starting the event, has been held responsible for building the whole scene and growing it into what it is today. Fracture dismisses the idea of money as an incentive in Australian grime; insisting that everyone is involved purely for the love of the culture.

Our DMY-signee Yizzy recently called on Australian grime MCs Shadow and Nerve for a remix of his single ‘Yeah’, with the high-energy tune bringing together two scenes with the same love.

It seems like the scene in the Southern Hemisphere is in a very healthy place right now…
