Shanghai Beach is a Brooklyn, New York based act (consisting of Steven Salazar) that performs dark synth pop inspired by dystopian art, Ridley Scott films, and old science fiction novels.
Since the creation of Shanghai Beach in 2014, Salazar has performed all over the United States and Canada with no plans on stopping. He has written, recorded, and released two EPs and two full lengths. Salazar has performed in multiple acts in many genres since his entry into music in 2003.
Since the release of Shanghai Beach’s last full length, an obsession with vintage analog synthesizers and modern progressive technology has led Salazar into icy dark sound with an unsettling view of the future.
