Parisian DJ Tchami premieres the video for his new single “World to Me featuring Luke James”

Miami-based Parisian DJ Tchami is premiering the video for his new single “World to Me featuring Luke James”— HERE. The track has garnered over a million streams total consumption in two weeks and will appear on his highly anticipated forthcoming EP Revelations, out August 25 on his own Confession label.

The video was written and directed by the well-known director Sing J. Lee who has previously worked with artists such as Chvrches, Gorgon City, Muse and more. The video was filmed in the city of Shanghai and a scene on the notable Gouqi Island—an abandoned fishing village known for becoming completely overrun in foliage during the summer months—with a cast of local influencers in their first acting roles.

Of the video, Lee says, “‘World to Me’ is a story about a young girl who may have come from a more rural town, like most of the youth, became seduced and infatuated with the relentless modernism of a new city and all that it offered, always forward facing, never looking back. She falls in love in the process and together with her partner, they embody the same philosophy of destructive youth.

But over time, the honeymoon period wears off and the lifestyle takes its toll on the young woman. A tiredness and sickness of the monotony of chasing the vacuous creeps in. Her relationship crumbles as her partner falls for another person within the friendship group. The call of the spirits from her past edge into her life, in the form of chrysanthemum petals—a flower in Chinese that symbolizes purity. Initially denying the call, she believes the spirits to be malicious, covering her walls and her hands in protective words. But as time goes on, it is revealed that they call her back to her origins in order to help her find a peace in the balance of both worlds she inhabits. A harmony only sustained by not foregoing one half for the other—a classic story of yin and yang.”
