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.
Guest DJ Murphy Kin.
This week's guest DJ is Murphy Kin a.ka DJ Lucy, DJ Lucy is never satisfied with the curiosity of digging new things. Originally from the movie industry, being a DJ and producing music is not just unlimited but also unbounded.
Listening to Lucy's music is like watching a movie, It has ups and downs, and he doesn’t only build up the melodies between 125~128 BPM, as this is definitely not comfortable 4/4 all the way, and will never take you to heaven at the very beginning of his sets; rather he will show you around his beats from a slow build-up, lead you from romantic rocks, classic old schools, flirtatious R&B, then get you into Disco, Indie, Rock, and even Dance.
His music makes people feel like they are in a movie scene, reaching a climax with beats. Born to be positive and energetic, DJ Lucy has various music tastes and knows all sorts of musical genres. He will try to seize your emotions rhythmically by switching through different kinds of music, from Hip-Hop, Rock, Punk, to Indie Rock and Jazz.
Led by DJ Lucy, Ting Ting Disco has been well known for presenting great parties in all sorts of bars, pubs, clubs, and venues in both Taipei and Shanghai since 2015. In 2017, Ting Ting Disco started to play music in other cities in China and go on tour in Asia contiguously. In 2021, it aims to bring more than just parties by also releasing online music. By collecting and integrating music productions from all over the world, it provides music lovers with more multi music choices.
When performing live, you will find out that he is a musician without any rules, any scripts. Sometimes his play is guided by the moments, vibes, or the atmosphere, and sometimes it is by him, controlling everyone’s state of mind like a movie director, enjoy the show!
