Bicycle Corporation is an Italian duo of DJ and producer, Marco Mei and Stefano Ugliano, better known as 6884. The pair have amassed over 50 releases across genres such as Techno, Deep House, House, Melodic, and French House.
Marco began his career in the early nineties by working as a crew for events like ‘Urban People.’ With time he gained recognition on the music scene and steadily became a man in demand all across Italy. But then things didn’t stop there, after so much success in his native land Marco was soon getting international bookings across the globe.
Stefano, from Torino, Italy was showing promise as a budding musician right from his childhood. He showed a keen interest in the musical arts which soon began to engulf most of his spare time. He studied classical piano, percussion and drums and greatly appreciated ‘Chopin’s and ‘West African Djembe.’
But with all his devotion to so many different kinds of music, there was one thing Stefano had a love for that was like none other, The man spinning the wheels, the DJ became most enticing for the teenaged Stefano. Those beats were seldom played on any Italian radio station of that time.
Making those sounds let alone playing them before masses of people would seem like a pipe dream to most. But Stefano would not be deterred, he had a vision which he would now see through to the end and with hard work, dedication and sheer tenacity, Bicycle Corporation came to be.
Even with all their success today, Marco and Stefan have not forgotten their humble beginnings. They’ve recently been going back over some of their earlier tracks and even set up a Bandcamp page to distribute them. Bicycle Corporation are available for booking via our DJ agency for Asia.
Guest DJ Brendon P.
DJ Brendon P whose real name is Brendon Perera is a Singaporean native and prefers the low-profile, lo-fi approach to his work. With a career that’s almost 4 decades young and still growing, Brendon P has a long history of Clubs and Music.
It all started in 1980, in the local mobile circuit, and he moved 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 (House, Techno, Disco, Nu Disco, Funk, Soul, Lounge, Electronica) over his years as a DJ, both locally and internationally, he continued to acquire a keen ear and passion for dance music. From doing the Club rounds in the ’80s, both locally and internationally.
He has had residencies with the Juliana’s and Bacchus groups, residencies with Neo Pharaohs, Venom and NOX in the ’90s, and a 9-year residency at the globally renowned, Zouk Club in Singapore. Between July 2001 to May 2009, he also held a 2-year Residency at Kyo, and spent 4 and a half 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. He has DJ'ed in cities across the globe including Geneva, Gothenburg, Melbourne, London, New York, Miami, Taiwan, Hanoi and Hong Kong, just to name a few.
He also had the privilege of playing 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 and remixes on In The Woods (USA), Los Grandes (Spain), Reversoulmusic (USA), Audio Parallax (UK), and many others.
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.
