On Wednesday 22 August "silverlining" will perform a short and intimate instore session at Vinyl House, the record store hot spot in Shenzhen from 8PM onwards.

On Thursday 23 August "silverlining" will perform an exclusive and long live set AND Jasmine Li and Ebar play as DJ Tag team together and invite Tomasz Guiddo as special guest at Oil club in Shenzhen. 

silverlining is an electronic music duo based in Shanghai, China.
They are part live performance, part DJ set. East meets West, old meets new.

Jasmine Li is 15 years in the DJ booth and the top ranked female underground DJ in China, and formerly the proprietress of notorious Shanghai clubs - Celia, Downtown, Shiva Lounge. She's also a professional classical musician and a critically acclaimed virtuoso of the "pipa", a lute-like stringed instrument with over 2 millennia of Chinese tradition. After 6 years of conservatory, she has been playing professionally for 28 years, with 12 of them as first-seat pipa in the Guangzhou Opera.

New York's Ebar has 28 years of house and techno experience in the DJ booth and studio. He's had over a hundred releases on label ranging from King Street and Nervous to Sony and RCA, and played some of the rowdiest floors in the world. Along with being a festival promoter, industry executive, journalist, 3-time label owner, and vocal advocate of the genre, he's also a classically trained pianist.

Winter 2017 in Shanghai saw Ebar and Jasmine Li combine as Silver Lining, a proper pumping DJ tagteam (tech, deep, prog) interspersed with live amplified performances on the pipa + Ableton Push. This east-meets-west duology hasn't been done quite like this before in the electronic scene, and the ingredients are ripe for a fertile and creative gig.

silverlining just concluded their first tour including performances at:

707 – Bali, ID
Modissa - Zurich, CH
Summer Story Festival - Madrid, ES
Kitkat Club - Berlin, DE
Luxor Live - Arnhem, NL
The Lakehouse - Antwerp, BE
W Hotel - Shanghai, CN


Jasmine Li 在DJ台工作了15年,是中国排名最高的地下DJ,她曾是上海臭名昭著的俱乐部——西莉亚(Celia)、市中心和湿婆酒吧(Shiva Lounge)的老板。她也是一位专业的古典音乐家,也是一位广受好评的“琵琶”演奏家。琵琶是一种琵琶般的弦乐器,有着两千多年的中国传统。经过6年的粤剧音乐学院生涯,她已经从事了28年的职业生涯,其中12年是广州歌剧院的首席琵琶。

纽约的Ebar在DJ舞台和录音棚里有28年的House和 Techno经验。他已经发行了一百多张唱片,从《King Street》到《Nervous》,再到Sony和RCA,他还出演了世界上最吵闹的几部。除了是一名DJ和制作人,他还是一个音乐节推广者、音乐行业高管、新闻记者、3个唱片厂牌的拥有者、电子音乐的声乐倡导者,以及一个受过传统训练的钢琴家。

在2017年的上海冬季,Ebar和Jasmine Li共同出演silverlining,这是一个合适的DJ团队(tech, deep, prog),穿插了琵琶 + Ableton Push的现场放大表演。这种东西方的二元对立在电子场景中以前没有做过这样的事情,而且原料已经成熟,可以进行丰富和创造性的演出。
