Bicycle Corporation have announced the guest DJ Biscuit for their next 'Foundations' show. Scientific Sound Asia is the Asian electronic music station for the region and internationally.
Bicycle Corporation is an Italian duo of the DJ and Producer Marco MEI plus the skilled Stefano Ugliano aka 6884. In the early nineties, Marco was starting on his musical journey as a DJ and producer and began doing his events as a crew known as 'Urban People' across the whole of Italy. This earned him recognition and he earned a residency at Pacha, which in turn led to him getting DJ bookings internationally, and launched him on a musical journey around the globe.
Born and brought up in Torino, Italy, Stefano in his childhood displayed a wealth of abilities with music. He studied with passion classical piano, percussion, and drums, he loved his Chopin's and West African Djembe, but that figure of the disc jockey rearing the crowd proved more and more enchanting for the teenage Stefano.
He wondered if those very electronic beats, so hard to find on ‘90s Italian radio stations, were going to open a completely new chapter in his life and then Bicycle Corporation evolved. Bicycle Corporation have released a Hard Techno remix for Virus D.D.Ds' track Origination and is featured in the staff picks on Beatport, and it's a lovely track.
Guest DJ Biscuit.
This week's guest is DJ Biscuit, Biscuit real name Daniela Horeanga is a PR professional by day and an all-things-music purveyor by night. Having started as a Journalist in her home country Romania, her passion for communication and public relations landed her a job in Malaysia 14 years ago. Not long after, Daniela discovered her affinity to electronic dance music and her pursuit to grow its presence in Asia has become a mission.
She started organising events in The Philippines and Thailand. From radio shows to club parties, her journey lead to creating sustainable concepts, meant to support the electronic music scene, discover talent and pursue ideas that would grow the music appreciation in markets where despite the talent, very few dare to display. A die-hard Depeche Mode fan since her younger age electronic music, pop-rock and new wave have shaped her music taste and established the base of what she was about to pursue further.
The owner of Art Xtreme Media, an events and art creation company she established in Malaysia 4 years ago, Daniela is hosting various music events throughout KL's nightlife circuit. Art Xtreme Media is the founder of the weekly party ”The Sweatbox” and the monthly parties “Taboo” as well as Questionmark Wednesdays at The Iron Fairies KL a night dedicated to music industry people. Her passion for music and her desire to harness the electronic music scene in Malaysia has led to a multitude of collaborations across the spectrum. From worldwide artists and producers to publications, clubs and event spaces that host her parties, radio stations and to several music exchange programs in the region including Thailand and Indonesia with the likes of Techno Sake, Panorasuna and Enter The Void- passionate promoters of all non-mainstream electronic music things.
2018 marks Art Xtreme Media's stepping stone with a new addition to the various concepts Sweatbox Records. The record label launched in April 2018 is a platform for both local and worldwide producers to showcase their music abilities in tune with the vibe of The Sweatbox parties. Sweatbox Records' first compilation: “From Sunset To Sunrise Vol 1” gathers 25 artists and 21 tracks meant to reflect the journey-oriented vibe of Saturday nights, brimming with good fun and energy. Sweatbox Records is a collaboration with the UK-hailing My Digital Enemy (currently known as MDE), a worldwide acclaimed duo of producers and artists who are also running their own labels Vudu and Zulu records. Whilst Vudu and Zulu are championing the more bass line oriented spectrum of electronic music, Sweatbox Records comes as a breath of fresh air with releases focused on the deeper more technical side of electronic music. The upcoming releases will keep Sweatbox Records busy as an array of local producers are stepping up with quality music, with the sole aim of putting Malaysia's electronic music scene on the world map.
The desire to deliver a message through her music and the events Art Xtreme Media is organising has lead Daniela to get behind the decks herself. 2017 marks the year when DJ Biscuit was born and it equally marks her natural progression to deliver her message through her music picks. 2018 saw her hosting “Biscuit +Friends” every Wednesday at Elysium KL, now a defunct place, pursuing a deeper, house music, oriented night and a string of back to back sessions with both local and international DJs.
She plays a variety of sounds from deeper grooves to techno bangers with an accent on minimal undertones as well as having a sweet spot for drum and bass as an influence. Sharing the decks with a multitude of artists from Saab to Subb-An to Guti, and having graced the decks in colourful places around the world from Indonesia to Romania to Ibiza, Biscuit continues her journey of delivering good sounds and making people dance as well as turning her music passion into an ever-learning process.
2018 also marked the beginning of Sweatbox Thailand, again, a natural progression to expanding the regional family of talented DJs and producers with the focus of catering to the specific taste for the electronic music market in Thailand. With an ever-expanding regional and worldwide family of music aficionados, Daniela shows no signs of stopping with more projects underway from hosting festival stages to organising large-scale events. Whether it is a dream, for now, the same passion and desire to deliver good vibes to Asia's growing electronic music market will surely set Daniela on the path to turning the dreams into reality.
