Bicycle Corporation has announced guest DJ Brendon P (see below) for 'Foundations' episode 32. Scientific Sound Asia is an Asian electronic music station serving the region and internationally.
Bicycle Corporation is an Italian collaboration between DJ and producer Marco MEI plus the talented Stefano Ugliano, who goes by the moniker 6884. At the beginning of the nineties, Marco set off on his journey as a producer and disc jockey.
In conjunction with other artists, a crew known as 'Urban People' started doing events all over Italy with the raver in mind. Marco began making a name for himself and after nearly a decade of honing his art was invited to perform as resident DJ at Pacha, Egypt.
After gracing the wheels of steel for Pacha, he began getting bookings internationally and set off on a journey around the globe. He has shared the booth with renowned artists internationally, including Roger Sanchez, Harry Romero, David Morales, Justin Berkman, Sander Kleinenberg, Ralph Falcon and many more.
Entering the world in Torino, Italy, Stefano as a youngster displayed remarkable talents in music. He did this with a dedication to percussion, classical piano, and drums, in addition, he showed great admiration for his Chopins and West African Djembe.
The rebel in Stefano when he grew into a teen became overwhelmed with the image of a disc jockey rearing the crowd with electronic beats. He wondered if those very electronic beats, so hard to listen to on the airwaves in 1990s Italy, would become part of his life and then by chance he met Marco and the duo was born.
Guest DJ Brendon P.
DJ Brendon P whose real name is Brendon Perera is a native of Singapore and prefers the low-profile, lo-fi approach to his work and has performed as a disc jockey for over four decades. Brendon P has a long history of Clubs and Music; starting in 1980, in the Singaporean mobile DJ circuit, and moving on to clubs a year later.
A visit to New York in 1984, and visiting clubs such as the Funhouse, the Paradise Garage, Dancetaria and Area weaned him into the New York club culture, and into the music that was to become the house music that we hear today. Crossing vast musical backgrounds over his years as a DJ, both locally and internationally, he continued to acquire a keen ear and passion for dance music his main genres now being House, Techno, Disco, Nu Disco, Funk, Soul, Lounge, and Electronica.
From doing the club rounds in the ’80s, both locally and internationally, with the Juliana’s and Bacchus groups, residencies with Neo Pharaohs, Venom and NOX in the ’90s, a 9-year residency at the globally renowned, Zouk Club in Singapore. Between July 2001 and May 2009 he held a 2-year Residency at Kyo, and spending the last five years on the team of residents at the Swanky CE LA VI Rooftop Club & Skybar at Marina Bay Sands, he continues to be a regular feature in the local and international club circuit today.
Having DJ'ed in cities across the globe (including Geneva, Gothenburg, Melbourne, London, New York, Miami, Taiwan, Hanoi & Hong Kong, just to name a few), and has also played at the world-renowned (and now defunct) Cielo Club in New York, in June 2010. Brendon, in his own and separate right, as a producer, has also released his original material/remixes on In The Woods (USA), Los Grandes (Spain), Reversoulmusic (USA), Audio Parallax (UK), Hotbox Music (USA), Soul Shift (USA), Defected (UK), Rawjak (SG), Eclesia (SG), Issys Groove (UK), Love International (MY) and One With Music (SG).
With his stringent adherence to music style and sophistication and attention to detail, it's not difficult to understand why Nicolas Mattar, owner of New York's 'Cielo' and ‘Output’, calls him a 'taste master' and one of the best DJ's in the region. Expect nothing less from him, than a set that crosses vast musical boundaries; past, present and future.
In this month's Foundations, Brendon P enlightens us with a nice blend of genres old and new featuring Electronica, Deep House, US Garage, and Afro-House. Enjoy the show.
Listen live on Friday 29th of April 2022 from 10 PM to 12 AM Indochina Time (ICT) and repeat Tuesday from 10 AM to 12 PM (ICT).
