Bicycle Corporation guest DJ Psycho-UK will be presenting his first 'Electronic Roots' 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. Recently they have revisited their first tracks and have set up a Bandcamp page to distribute them.
Guest DJ Psycho-UK.
This week's guest DJ is DJ Psycho-UK, DJ Psycho-UK is an East London (UK) rude boy, hip hop turntablist, Drum and Bass, House, and multi-genre DJ. DJ Psycho got his first pair of decks at the tender age of 14 and has been dropping dope beats ever since.
Growing up during the Golden Age of Hip Hop, Acid House, Hardcore and Techno his musical influence draws influence from diverse artists such as Public Enemy, KRS1, Run DMC, DJ Hype, Carl Cox, Mickey Finn, A Guy Called Gerald, Leftfield, Portishead, Massive Attack and many others.
Cutting his Disc Jockey teeth in the underground squat parties of 1990s London during the age of Hip Hop, Acid House and Hard-Core, he hooked up with the Production House Records crew with the likes of DMS, The House Crew and X-Static. Ever tenacious, DJ Psycho drew on London’s raw and gritty musical sub-cultures of the 90s and early 2000s to develop his own dark and dirty sound, bass-heavy, with up-tempo beats and funky grooves.
His distinct style soon saw him playing regular slots on some of London’s leading pirate radio stations such as AXE FM and Fantasy FM and spinning tunes at the city’s top venues including Scala, Bagley’s Film Studios, 491 Gallery, 291 Gallery and 333. He has DJed at many venues in Vietnam including Piu Piu, Basement, Indika, Cargo Remote, Pogo Beach Club, Dragon Beach, The Lab, and others.
Epitomising ‘music is my sanctuary music is my life’ DJ Psycho has toured the world with his eclectic collection of grooves, loops, riffs and beats to play in countries as diverse as the UK, West Indies, Australia and Vietnam. Bringing unique, raw energy to the dancefloor for those who prefer a more mature approach to their music, DJ Psycho gets the party started right every time.
Currently lying low in dynamic Saigon, Vietnam DJ Psycho founded DJ agency, promotions and event management company Scientific Sound Asia in 2013, bringing international DJs and acts to the South East Asian region. The agency also runs an underground radio station playing up-funked electronic music and hosting slots for international groove maestros. When not on the decks, DJ Psycho-UK goes by the moniker of Tariq Azam.
His show features a selection of music that has formed his electrical roots including Classic House, Acid House, Soulful House, Funky House, Garage and Hardcore.
