Bicycle Corporation introduce guest DJ Jesse Chen for their 'Electronic Roots' episode 26. 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 own nights as a collective known as 'Urban People' throughout the whole of Italy. This gained him notoriety and he earned a residency at Pacha, which led to him getting DJ bookings internationally, and launched him on a musical endeavour around the planet.
Raised in Torino, Italy, Stefano in his early years displayed a fortitude of abilities with music. He studied with a passion classical piano, percussion, and drums, he loved his chopins and west African djembes.
Despite this, that figure of 'the DJ standing on the stage performing' proved more and more mesmerising for the teenage Stefano. He wondered if those very electronic beats, so hard to get on ‘90s Italian radio stations, were going to launch a very new chapter in his life and then Bicycle Corporation was born.
Guest DJ Jesse Chen.
This week's guest is DJ Jesse Chen, Jesse Chen is a fast-rising talented Taiwanese Techno DJ. In 2019, he co-created and co-founded Pleasure Always Brings Pain (PABP) with visual designer Sebastian Wu.
He is always able to surprise his audience with liberal queerness, diversity, and inclusivity in Taipei with his sultry dark techno sets. He selects the beats to stand out through the mix of powerful deep techno, bringing fine details to the dance floor.
Over the years, he has invited the most artistic and celebrated acts such as Perc, Henning Baer, Emika, Daniela La Luz, Parallx, MCMLXXXV (Herrensauna), Introversion, Gerald VDH, Paàl, and the legendary Berlin techno/post-punk godfather Mark Reeder to Taipei. His DJ sets always combine tracks from different eras and genres but still remain rooted in techno while shedding light on sounds less frequently heard in Taipei.
Jesse mostly plays tasteful techno without concession and his talent was promptly recognized. He has played at Pawnshop, B1 and the 2019 Spectrum Formosa lineup, and in 2020 the Mixmag Taiwan launch lineup.
Listen live on Wednesday 29th of December 2021 from 6 PM to 8 PM Indochina Time (ICT), and repeat Sunday from 6 AM to 8 AM (ICT).
