The Shanghai Restoration Project presents The Classics

New album features contemporary remakes of popular 1930s & 1940s Shanghai jazz songs

The Shanghai Restoration Project, aka our friend Dave Liang, makes awesome music, blending Chinese instruments with the western sounds of hip hop and electronica. SRP's latest album, entitled The Classics, features contemporary remakes of popular 1930s & 1940s Shanghai jazz songs. I got my hands on an early preview of the album, and it's super-cool, like hopping into a sexy Shanghai time machine.

The Classics drops next Tuesday, January 28. Want to win a copy? Scroll down to the bottom for details. But first, watch this cool teaser video, featuring singer Zhang Le and directed by Lawrence Chen:

You're digging that, you can preview the rest of the album on Amazon and listen to the original 1930s/40s versions of the tunes on Spotify. The CD, which contains a booklet with lyrics and English translation, is beautifully designed by Sun Yunfan and features photography by Zhuang Yan.
