Bicycle Corporation has announced guest DJ Brendon P for their 'Roots' episode 133. Scientific Sound Asia is an Asian electronic music station serving 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 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 Chopins and West African Djembe.
However, 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.
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, and 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 and 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.
This month's show is a lovely blend of Funk, Soul, Jazz, Disco, Nu Disco, Afrobeat, Italo Disco, and House. Enjoy the show.
Listen live on Sunday 19th of June 2022 from 6 PM to 8 PM Indochina Time (ICT) and repeating Thursday from 6 AM to 8 AM (ICT).
