Bicycle Corporation introduce guest DJ Cao Ocampo for his first 'Roots' show this Sunday 30th of August from 6 PM to 8 PM Indochina Time (ICT) and repeating on Thursday from 6 AM to 8 AM (ICT). Scientific Sound Asia is the English language electronic music station for Sri Lanka, Japan, Singapore, Thailand, India, South Korea and the rest of Asia.
Bicycle Corporation is an Italian combination of the DJ and producer Marco MEI and the talented Stefano Ugliano aka 6884. In the early nineties, Marco was starting on his musical mission as a DJ and producer.
He began doing his own events as a collective known as 'Urban People' across the length and breadth of Italy. This gained him status and he earned a residency at Pacha, Egypt which as a result led to him getting DJ bookings internationally, and launched him on a musical journey around the globe.
Conceived and raised in Torino, Italy, Stefano in his early years demonstrated an abundance of skills with music. He studied with an undying love for classical piano, percussion, and drums, additionally, he admired his Chopins and West African Djembe.
As he grew, the image of the disc jockey enchanting the crowd proved more and more appealing for the rebellious Stefano. He dreamt that those very electronic beats, so hard to find on Italian airwaves in the 1990s, were going to be part of his life and then he by chance met Marco and then Bicycle Corporation was born.
As the duo produced together with their renowned skills they had a steady flow of releases and have put out more than 50 tracks and remixes on a variety of labels. Their Roots show is a demonstration of an artist's Roots in music and the styles which led them to be who they are now.
Guest DJ Cao Ocampo.
This week's guest DJ is Filipino Cao Ocampo, Cao Ocampo's real name is Carlo Ocampo and he is a DJ hailing from Manilla in The Phillippines. His journey as a DJ began quite young at age 11 when he started to collect vinyl records with Rap, Hip Hop and RnB being his main genres as well as gaining influences from his father's extensive Jazz and Funk collection.
Fast forward a few years and at the end of the 90s, his mentality started to shift towards electronic music. In his free time, he liked collecting Trance and other genres listening to the likes of System F, ATB, Paul Van Dyk, Sasha, and Digweed.
As he matured he started to swing towards House Music with the likes of Naked Music and Stereo Sushi setting him off on that path. Nowadays his main genre is House and has over time outgrown the other genres.
Cao performs regularly around the Philippines and also hosts a show on Radio Philippines, his mix features the Roots of his origins as a DJ and we welcome him onboard with his first guest mix, enjoy the show!
