Born Yuyang Zhang but known to the world as Shanghai Phantom, this enigmatic artist embodies the essence of cross-cultural harmony, weaving a tapestry of sound that transcends borders and resonates with souls across the globe.

From the vibrant pulse of Shanghai to the soulful rhythms of Atlanta, Georgia, Shanghai Phantom's journey began as a serendipitous encounter with the magic of cross-cultural exchange. It was in the sweltering summer of 2008 that the seeds of his musical odyssey were planted, sparking a profound connection to the universal language of music that would shape his destiny.

In 2020, Shanghai Phantom made his mark on the world stage with the release of his debut mixtape, 'Asian Spice,' a mesmerizing fusion of sounds that showcased his eclectic influences and collaborative spirit. Teaming up with a diverse lineup of artists, including A.D.C, Beijing Daddy, and Grace Serene, Shanghai Phantom shattered musical boundaries, proving that music knows no bounds and transcends all barriers.

One track, in particular, 'Du Yueh-Sheng,' a collaboration with A.D.C, resonated deeply with audiences worldwide, its hypnotic beats and ethereal melodies echoing from the neon-lit nightclubs of Shanghai to the mystical markets of Tibet. Meanwhile, on the other side of the world, his single 'Phantom' captivated listeners in the United States, garnering over 50,000 streams and igniting a spark of curiosity for his unique sound.

In 2021, Shanghai Phantom took center stage alongside Beijing Daddy and JayHu for their debut major show in Shanghai, where his classical music training melded seamlessly with a bold fusion of genres, leaving audiences spellbound and hungry for more.

As the years passed, Shanghai Phantom's musical journey led him to the vibrant streets of Los Angeles, where he embarked on his most ambitious project yet: his first official album. Collaborating with acclaimed artists such as Ted Park and the visionary producer Chasethemoney, Shanghai Phantom's sound evolved, pushing the boundaries of genre and redefining the limits of sonic expression.
