Emmy winning producer Dave Liang brought The Shanghai Restoration Project (TSRP) to China for a nine-city tour, and we stopped by the Shanghai show on May 17. Check it out!
Started by New-York-based Dave Liang in 2006, TSRP mixes Chinese sounds with Western hip-hop and electronica music, and draws inspiration from the 1930s jazz music of Shanghai. Their albums have reached the top of the iTunes and Amazon electronic charts, receive millions of plays on Pandora annually, and can often be heard in TV shows, films, and commercials around the world.
TSRP’s latest album, “The Classics” produced by Dave Liang featuring Zhang Le, a jazz singer from Shanghai, brings us back to the 30s – 40s period in Shanghai, but on an up-to-date electronic beat.
We caught up with Dave before the tour and asked about his history with The Shanghai Restoration Project and about his expectations about the China shows. Check out our earlier post for more details and get a free track exclusive for Shanghaiist readers.
