You should have heard us mention the Decks and the City project before now and how the guys behind it were running a Kickstarter campagin to help get their doco over the line and on to our screens. Well, if not, to recap, it’s a production by local lads Glen J Scrymgour and James Corbett who are documenting the passion that Adelaide has for dance music. Often sidelined by major international artists and tours Adelaide has built its own unique brand of clubbing and has developed its own identity and characters over the last 20 years or so.

When completed the film will put the spotlight on Adelaide like never before and it’ll feature exclusive interviews with international superstars such as Motez as well as local heroes including Matt Abstrax (Techphonics), Driller Jet Armstrong (Sugar) and our own Gunda G (The Bassbin/Inbound Records) plus many others. Snippets so far are super high quality and delve into all sorts of areas including our local producers, promoters and DJs, the image of dance music and drugs and the future health of the industry.

Well, we’re delighted to let you all know that thanks to public support they successfully managed to raise over $11,000 which will help them to close out the project and get it distributed. This really is amazing news and we at Fresh are super happy that they managed to reach their goal. We can’t wait to see how it all comes together. Well done guys!


It’s not finished yet but in the meantime you can enjoy this sweet trailer to give you a taste of what’s in store.
