ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Ian Widgery & Morton Wilson have collaborated with the Shanghai Tang Fashion brand on different projects since their groundbreaking release 'The Original 1930s Shanghai Divas Redefined' with EMI in 2002. This album is the result of that ongoing collaboration, the first collection of original tracks and new 1930s remixes under the 'Shanghai Tang Lounge Collection' banner.

Ian & Morton have taken the original 'remix' premise of Shanghai Divas and extended it to embrace new writers and artistes working in the Hong Kong, Shanghai, Beijing axis.

“I’m intrigued by symmetry – how our minds work, with one idea inspiring the next, not so much in a linear or geometric way, but texturally, the subtle shifts that occur as different elements converge. The Shanghai Tang colours, the feel of the fabrics in the couture and the scent when you walk into the store are actually part of the sound here. I hope our latest collaboration offers a new voyage for you, listening to this collection, to Shanghai – past, present and, hopefully, a glimpse of the future”. Ian Widgery

"There is an interesting tension at play right now over here - Shanghai is looking to reclaim its cosmopolitan status as the 'Paris of the East' that it once was, and yet there is a whole new dynamism in China - you can see it in the visual arts, films, fashion and of course the music. It's about self expression but it's also wide open to new ideas pouring in - a lot of people are heading in this direction. I think as we kick of into the 21st Century we are seeing something emerging here, particularly Shanghai, that has a very unique cosmopolitan mix . . . I can't think of anywhere else I'd rather be making music right now". Morton Wilson.

SHANGHAI TANG PRESS RELEASE:

The ‘Shanghai Tang Lounge Collection’ is a new album of lounge music co-produced with platinum selling recording artist / international music producer Ian Widgery and award winning composer and music producer Morton Wilson from Schtung Music.

The ‘Shanghai Tang Lounge Collection’ music CD is an important component of the multi-sensory lifestyle experience that is part of the brand’s DNA. As Raphael le Masne, Executive Chairman of Shanghai Tang describes, “When you go into our stores, you smell the Ginger Flower scent, you see the colours that we play with, you have the beautiful feel of the silk... cashmere, and you have enchanting music.”

There are four key components to Shanghai Tang Lounge Collection. These are 1930s Shanghai Divas remixes like Crazy Band; new arrangements of existing classics featuring current artistes such as Li Ya & WendyZ; and then there are the brand new original compositions including I Like It, Take A Ride, Million Miles Away, and Don’t Change, composed and written by artistes from within the Schtung extended team. The inspiration for I Like It came from a few snapshots that Mr. Wilson took during a Saturday stroll along Fuxing Lu, after dropping into the Shanghai Tang Café. He describes the creation as inspired and effortless, and that “the song wrote itself, really”. Beijing songstress Li Ya added vocals based on her experience of Shanghai and multi-talented HK composer and guitarist Tiger Hull pulled the strands together. The album also includes two bonus Runway Mixes for the clubbers and fashion crowd. The Shanghai Tang Lounge Collection will evolve and the Producers will continue to seek out up and coming Chinese divas and instrumentalists to work with Widgery & Wilson on new collaborations.

THE PRODUCERS

Ian’s remix work in the 90’s established him as a cutting edge producer in London – his tracks have been played on dance floors around the globe by Pete Tong, Sasha, Tiesto & Paul Oakenfold. After a three year stint in Hong Kong, Ian now works from his Vancouver base, Like Music Productions, writing and producing tracks that transcend musical genres.

“I’m intrigued by symmetry – how our minds work, with one idea inspiring the next, not so much in a linear or geometric way, but texturally, the subtle shifts that occur as different elements converge. The Shanghai Tang colours, the feel of the fabrics in the couture and the scent when you walk into the store are actually part of the sound here. I hope our latest collaboration offers a new voyage for you, listening to this collection, to Shanghai – past, present and, hopefully, a glimpse of the future”. Ian W.
