Bicycle Corporation has announced guest DJ Brendon P for their 'Roots' episode 151. 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 talented Stefano Ugliano with the moniker 6884. The Italian team have released over 50 tracks and remixes across many genres including Deep House, Tech House, French House, Melodic and Techno.
In the early nineties, Marco was starting on his musical journey as a DJ and producer at events at home. After a while, he began doing his own events with his cohorts known as 'Urban People' across the whole of Italy.
This earned him a good name as a disc jockey and he gained a residency at the global club brand Pacha, in Daar es Salaam, Egypt. His residency and his reputation to get the party moving gained him DJ bookings internationally and launched him on a musical mission globally.
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, would open an entirely new chapter in his life, and then Bicycle Corporation evolved.
Despite their global recognition, Marco and Stefan have not forgotten their roots as teenagers new to electronic music. They’ve recently been going back over some of their earlier tracks and even set up a Bandcamp page to distribute them. Their Roots show features popular DJs and producers from around Asia that are connected with the electronic music scene.
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 has spent the last six 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 Disco, Nu Disco, Cosmic Disco, Nu Jazz, Afrobeat, and Latin. Enjoy the show.
Listen live on Sunday 16th of October 2022 from 6 PM to 8 PM Indochina Time (ICT) and repeating Thursday from 6 AM to 8 AM (ICT).
