College returns with its third full length album, a rich, glowing and nostalgic synth-based offering reminiscent of previous works heard in "A Real Hero" (Drive Soundtrack), but at the same time exploring a unique and conceptual world, Shanghai, giving College's textural and atmospherical works a brand new dimension.

College is David Grellier; a French electronic music composer, born in 1979 in Nantes. In the late-90s he acquired his first computer with which he produced several demos influenced by artists such as Jeff Mills and Aphex Twin, and labels such as Soma Records, Peacefrog and Warp. In 2007 he started Valerie; a blog that has evolved to become a record label and an expanding cultural network of international artists. 2011 saw Nicolas Winding Refn choose "A Real Hero" by College feat. Electric Youth as the theme song for his acclaimed and award-winning film Drive, propelling the act into mainstream consciousness.

Shanghai is an album inspired by the city itself – its culture and architecture; how it is a melting pot of many things. Musically he draws on 90's sounds and the work from artists including Mark Snow, Angelo Badalamenti, Joe Hisaishi and Aphex Twin.
