S A A T S U M A – ‘STORM’ (Directed, Shot & Edited)

Surging with the dynamic nature of the track itself, this contemplative clip explores the interplay between artificial and natural elements. Through experimentation with different textures and fractured light, the clip features minimal after effects and was mostly manipulated during takes using coloured glass. The result is a visual representation of the track’s strikingly eerie sense of lucidity and inner turmoil. The video was a collaboration between Cesar Rodrigues (Director), Tom Chapman (DOP), Ajay Jennings (Creative Director), Memphis Kelly, Lisi Suleman (Makeup) & Tom Glover. The official launch of the video and single will take place on Friday April 1st at Shebeen in Melbourne, with support from Huntly and Martin King.


‘Storm’ is the debut release of Melbourne based project SAATSUMA. This track is the first taste of their upcoming EP, which is set to be released mid 2016.

SAATSUMA was birthed via a studio collaboration between Memphis Kelly, Joel Ma and Cesar Rodrigues over 2015. The result was a merging of each of the individuals’ styles and influences to create a collection of ambient electronic songs. The project is being mixed by Declan Kelly (aka Dream Kit).

The music is driven by elements of hip hop, house & neo-soul, drawing inspiration from artists like FKA twigs, James Blake, Little Dragon to J-Dilla and Flying Lotus.
