Bicycle Corporation introduce guest DJ Vertigo for their 'Electronic Roots' show episode 14. 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, but 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.
