Bicycle Corporation introduce guest DJ Nandi for their 'Electronic Roots' show episode 50. Scientific Sound Asia is the Asian electronic music station for the region and internationally.
Bicycle Corporation is an Italian duo of the DJs and producers Marco MEI and the talented Stefano Ugliano who also goes under the production alias 6884. To date, the pair have over 50 releases including genres from Deep House, Tech House, French House, Melodic and Techno.
Marco began his career in the early nineties by working as a crew doing events under the brand Urban People. Over time he gained recognition on the music scene and steadily became a man in demand at events all over Italy.
He was then offered a residency he could not turn down at the globally renowned brand Pachha in Daar es Salaam, Egypt. But then things didn’t stop there, after so much so success in his native land and at Pacha, he was soon getting international bookings across the planet.
Stefano, originating from Torino, Italy showed promise as a virtuoso from a very early age. He demonstrated a natural flair for the musical arts that overcame him and his free time. He mastered classical piano, percussion and drums and felt gratification for ‘Chopin’s and ‘West African Djembe.’
His early interests in music, whilst admired, were overcome by his admiration of electronic music. He glared at videos of disc jockeys performing on the now legendary Technics SL 1200s with wonder and imagined himself performing.
He noticed that the beats he witnessed in videos on channels such as MTV were largely absent on mainstream Italian radio and craved more. His initial exposure ignited a fire in the rebel Stefano and then through a lot of work and self-belief, he studied production in his free time.
Then by chance, he met Marco Mei and instantly had a fusion and discussed how they could create these sounds together. As the duo melted together their production skills they had a flurry of releases across many genres and record labels.
Despite their global recognition, Marco and Stefan have not forgotten their roots as teenagers new to the scene. Recently, they’ve been going back over some of their earlier tracks and even set up a Bandcamp page to distribute them
