SG Lewis - Holding Back ft. Gallant

Welcome to Atlanta's Cascade roller rink, where people from all walks of life take a break for a roller skating jam.

John Merizalde, director: "Growing up in Atlanta, Cascade was a place that always fascinated me. When I was a teenager, I had the experience of spending an evening at this unassuming roller skating rink on the west side. What immediately stuck out to me was the energy - the Cascade crowd was diverse, the music was electric, and the movement was contagious. I realized this wasn't just a place to skate; it was a subculture, a community. 

When I heard "Holding Back" I realized this was not only the perfect opportunity to create a memorably groovy video but also a lasting tribute for this magical place. The track has a palpable sexiness that perfectly compliments the smoothness of Cascade skaters. Beyond the surface level coolness however, we wanted to layer some moodier undertones to match the lyrics, leaving us with a hybrid narrative doc that hopefully resonates with viewers. 

If anything, I hope this video motivates some of you to get up and grab a pair of skates."
