Shanghai Restoration Project – Alpha Go

Just listen. It’s luscious, spirited, sui generis and fantastical.

The Shanghai Restoration Project (SRP) is the Brooklyn based electronic duo of Dave Liang and Sun Yunfan.

Initially a solo project of Dave Liang, SRP was inspired by the 1930s Shanghai jazz scene. Having cut his teeth as a producer within the Bad Boy Records system, Liang’s early works stood out for their organic synthesis of Chinese instrumentation and hip-hop. Soon SRP began expanding stylistically and brought choral music, downtempo, electronica, and folk into its lexicon. In 2010, Liang met Shanghai jazz singer Zhang Le and the two hatched a series of contemporary interpretations of Chinese jazz classics.

In 2011 Liang met multidisciplinary artist Sun Yunfan and the two soon started collaborating – at first on music videos and live performance visuals and later on songwriting and production. Last year they co-wrote and produced the album ‘Life Elsewhere’ with Zhang Le, which was well received in China and nominated for several national awards.

SRP has now been streamed over 20 million times to date and have performed over 100 live shows around the world in places such as NYC, Amsterdam, Tokyo, Moscow, and The Great Wall of China.

A new album will be released 12/1/17.
